Jamie Dornan has been cast as the lead of “The Tourist,” a limited series from BBC One and HBO Max.

Harry and Jack Williams are writing the series, which follows one man’s search for his identity. Along with Dornan, the six-episode show will star Danielle Macdonald, Shalom Brune-Franklin and Hugo Weaving.

“The Tourist” centers on a British man (Dornan) who finds himself in the glowing red heart of 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 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 vast and unforgiving outback.

“Harry and Jack’s talents are as vast as the Australian outback, and this thriller will leave viewers on the edge of their seat piecing together the puzzle,” said Jeniffer Kim, Senior Vice President, International Originals, HBO Max. “We are delighted to have Jamie, Danielle, Hugo and Shalom join the cast for this compelling addition to our slate of international original series.”
