The highly anticipated new contemporary drama The Wrong Girl premieres 8.30pm Wednesday 28 September on Network TEN

Produced by Playmaker and based on the hit book by Zoë Foster BlakeThe Wrong Girl follows the life of 29-year-old breakfast television producer Lily Woodward, played by Jessica Marais. Like everyone, Lily wants a life rich in romance, a dynamic career and a happy family, but getting there is complicated.

Jessica Marais said: “I’m thrilled to bring the character of Lily Woodward to life. She is fun, confident, determined, quick to react and disarmingly charismatic. I hope audiences love her as much as I do. 

“It has been a pleasure working with the exceptional cast and crew, and I’m incredibly proud to be involved in this fresh and exciting new drama”.

Joining Jessica is a stellar cast including Craig McLachlan, Kerry Armstrong, Madeleine West, Hamish Blake, Doris Younane, Steve Vizard, Rob Collins, Ian Meadows, Hayley Magnus, Kevin Harrington, Leah Vandenberg, Christie Whelan Browne, Hugo Johnstone-Burt, David Woods and Cecelia Peters.

Author Zoë Foster Blake said: “Having your novel made into a TV show is one thing, but having the very best writers, cast and crew create that TV show, and for it to air on Network Ten, well, that’s another thing entirely. I can’t wait for Australia to see The Wrong Girl. It and Jessica Marais in particular are everything I hoped for: funny, heartfelt, relevant and authentic."

The Wrong Girl is for anyone who has diligently played by the rules, only to realise everyone else is playing a different game.

The Wrong Girl premieres 8.30pm Wednesday September 28 on Network TEN.
