Here’s your first look at Jessica in the TV Movie ‘Riot’. She plays Robyn Plaister. It will air Sunday 25 February, 8.30pm on ABC TV (Australia).

Inspired by actual events during Australia’s 1970s Gay Rights Movement, Riot explores the origins of the activism that led to the world’s first Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

IF – Damon Herriman will lead the cast of ‘Riot’ as gay rights activist Lance Gowland.

A swag of expat Australian actors will topline the new ABC telemovie, Riot.

Justified’s Damon Herriman, The Twilight Saga’s Xavier Samuel and Arrow’s Jessica de Gouw join Utopia’s Kate Box as leads of the drama focused upon the 1970s Gay Rights Movement.

Herriman plays activist Lance Gowland and the telemovie will screen next year, the tenth anniversary of his passing.

Jeffrey Walker, whose romantic comedy feature Ali’s Wedding opens August 31, directs the telemovie that will shoot in Sydney over the next four weeks. It is written by Carolyn Anderson and Greg Waters and produced by Werner Film Productions’s Joanna Werner and Louise Smith, in association with ABC Television, Screen Australia and Screen NSW.

Werner Film Productions recently released Dance Academy, which earned more than $2 million at the Australian box office after the success of the Dance Academy series for the ABC and international broadcasters.

“It could never be more relevant than now to tell this story of identity, courage and love as a marginalised community finds its voice and rises up to fight oppression and injustice,” ABC head of scripted production Sally Riley said in a statement.

“With a cast as extraordinary as this, Riot promises to be a stirring, landmark television event in time for the 40th anniversary of the birth of Mardi Gras.”

On behalf of Werner Film Productions, writer Greg Waters added, “At a time when the struggle for LGBTQ rights is far from over, it was a privilege to explore the lives of pioneering activists who sacrificed so much to drag Australia towards equality.”

We sure didn’t see that one coming. After two successful seasons, it is heartbreaking to see it go now. But there’s still hope another network will pick it up, and we must do everything we can to help by making noise on social media! #RenewUnderground

TV LINE – Plans for a third season of Underground have been derailed.
WGN American has cancelled the period drama after two seasons and 20 episodes, Tribune Media announced on Tuesday. Sony Pictures Television — the studio behind Underground — will attempt to find a new home for the series.

“Despite Underground being a terrific and important series, it no longer fits with our new direction and we have reached the difficult decision not to renew it for a third season,” said Tribune CEO Peter Kern in a statement. “We are tremendously proud of this landmark series that captured the zeitgeist and made an impact on television in a way never before seen on the medium… It is our hope that this remarkable show finds another home and continues its stories of courage, determination and freedom.”

The cancellation follows the demise of fellow WGN drama Outsiders and ahead of Tribune’s acquisition by Sinclair. “As WGN America evolves and broadens the scope and scale of its portfolio of series, we recently announced that resources will be reallocated to a new strategy to increase our relevance within the rapidly changing television landscape,” Kern explained. “This move is designed to deliver additional value for our advertising and distribution partners and offer viewers more original content across our air.”

Underground‘s second and final season concluded earlier this month.

Hi everyone! I’ve updated the gallery with two new production stills of Jessica as Ren Amari in one of her upcoming projects ‘OtherLife’. The movie will have its world premiere during the 2017 Sydney Film Festival on June 16. I am really excited to see this one, it looks promising!

OtherLife is a revolutionary new drug invented by Ren Amari (Jessica de Gouw). It expands the brain’s sense of time and creates virtual reality directly in the user’s mind. With OtherLife, mere seconds in real life can feel like hours or days of exciting adventures. Ren hopes to use this miraculous technology to heal her comatose brother, but there are other more secretive plans afoot, like selling OtherLife technology to governments wishing to solve prison overcrowding by imprisoning criminals in virtual cells: a use that Ren adamantly opposes. OtherLife makes use of a great concept in a stylish and energetic thriller.
