SBS thriller series Safe Home follows Phoebe (Aisha Dee), a twenty-something professional who leaves her job at a prominent law firm to work at a struggling family violence legal centre.
As interconnecting stories unfold, relationships are tested and the pressure mounts to save the centre. With so much at stake, Phoebe must navigate a path that isn’t always clear – and people aren’t always as they appear.
The cast also includes Mabel Li, Virginia Gay, Thomas Cocquerel, Antonia Prebble, Hal Cumpston, Chenoa Deemal, David Roberts, Janet Andrewartha, Mark Mitchinson, Tegan Stimson, Katlyn Wong, Nicholas Burton, and Yuchen Wang.
Created by Anna Barnes, who wrote the four episodes alongside Jean Tong and Michelle Law, Safe Home is the first project to be produced under Imogen Banks’ Kindling Pictures, with Emelyne Palmer co-producing and Stevie Cruz-Martin directing.
