“The Tourist,” starring Jamie Dornan, debuts with all six episodes March 3 on HBO Max in the United States.
The Max Original series is a co-production with BBC and Stan.
In the series, Dornan stars as a British man who finds himself in the Australian outback being pursued by a vast tank truck trying to drive him off the road. An epic cat and mouse chase unfolds and the man later wakes in the hospital, hurt, but somehow alive — except he has no idea who he is. With merciless figures from his past pursuing him, the man’s search for answers propels him through the outback.
The film also stars Danielle Macdonald, Shalom Brune-Franklin, Damon Herriman, Alex Dimitriades, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson and Kamil Ellis.
