Tonight | The Newsreader on ABC and ABC iview

The Newsreader on ABC – A year on from the events of series one, we meet Helen Norville (Anna Torv) and Dale Jennings (Sam Reid), now established as ‘The Golden Couple of News’… To the outside world, they present a glowing image of success and romance… But the truth is more complex.

As 1987 rolls along, global stocks will soar and crash, Australia will prepare to celebrate its Bicentennial year, and Helen and Dale grapple with who they really want to be in life… And whether that path can be together…

It’s July 1987, Dale (Sam Reid), Helen (Anna Torv), and the rest of the News at Six team are working perhaps the most critical night since Dale ascended to the desk— election night 1987. Hawke versus Howard.

Dale and Helen are going to jointly co-host the election night coverage— almost six hours, unbroken, on air. Adding additional pressure, their direct competition is none-other than Geoff Walters (Robert Taylor), now making a well publicised ‘comeback’ on a rival network.

Production credit: A Werner Films Production for the ABC. Major production investment from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in association with VicScreen. Worldwide distribution is managed by Entertainment One (eOne).

Created by Michael Lucas. Written by Michael Lucas, Kim Ho, Adrian Russell Wills and Niki Aken. Directed by Emma Freeman. Produced by Lucas and Joanna Werner. Executive Producers Werner, Stuart Menzies and Emma Freeman. ABC Executive Producers Brett Sleigh and Sally Riley.
