The cast includes Matt Day, Jonathan LaPaglia, Tina Bursill, Emma Lung, Alex Dimitriades, Maria Angelico, Rhys Mitchell, Olivia Junkeer, BeBe Bettencourt, Bryony Skillington, Lucy Ansell, Darcy Tadich, Lincoln Younes and Willow Speers.
Made Up Stories’ Bruna Papandrea, Jodi Matterson, and Steve Hutensky executive produced alongside Scheller, Keddie, Freedman, and Alison Hurbert-Burns for Binge. Lana Greenhalgh is the commissioning editor, while the late Brian Walsh was a commissioner and executive producer.
