New local YA series Surviving Summer will premiere next week on Netflix.

The series from Werner Film Productions (Dance Academy, The Newsreader, Crazy Fun Park, Ready For This, Riot) centres around teens surfing on the Surf Coast in Victoria.

The cast includes Sky Katz (Disney Channel’s Raven’s Home), who shares the screen -and the water- with Australia’s Kai Lewins (Wild Boys) and Savannah La Rain (Bosch & Rockit, Content), Brazilian rising star João Gabriel Marinho (Malhação), and in her first foray into acting, five-time Queensland Junior and current Women’s State Surf Champion Lilliana ‘Lil’ Bowrey.

The cast also includes Dustin Clare (Spartacus, Glitch), Adrienne Pickering (Rake, Offspring), Chris Alosio (Fighting Season), Kate Beahan (Troppo, The Wicker Man), Charli Wookey (Crazy Fun Park) newcomers Cantona Stewart and Mitch Hardaker, and Asmara Feik (Upright, The InBESTigators) as Honey Gibson.

Sky Katz stars as Summer Torres, a fierce Brooklyn teen who’s just been sent Down Under to live with family friends the Gibsons, in a tiny coastal town on the Great Ocean Road. Ari Gibson is an introverted but ambitious young surfer returning to competitive surfing after a life-threatening injury. Summer’s about to spend the next three months falling in love with surfing, driving Ari crazy… and upending everyone’s lives.

Friday June 3 on Netflix.
