Australian Sci-fi Thriller RESTORATION Seals Deals with New Zealand's SKY and Virgin Australia
Australian sci-fi thriller Restoration is set in a near-future world where humans have their memories downloaded for backup, and one man awakes after a routine backup with his memories restored into a body that is not his own.  
 
It is directed by Stuart Willis and features a stellar cast that includes Australian actor Craig McLachlan (The Doctor Blake Mysteries), Nadia Townsend (Knowing, City Homicide), Stephen Carracher (Vanished), Rosie Lourde (Starting From Now, Embedded), Elizabeth Nabben (Winners & Losers) and Ailís Logan (Alvin's Harmonious World of Opposites).  
 
The film had its Australian premiere on the Nine Network’s free-to-air channel 9Go! earlier this month and will be streamed on Australian subscription video-on-demand service STAN from September 8.
 
Sydney-based production company Midnight Snack Productions has now closed a deal with New Zealand subscription TV provider SKY for Restoration to be broadcast on SKY’s specialist sci-fi, fantasy, horror and cult channel The ZONE later this year.  
 
 “ZONE viewers love nothing more than a great story to sink their teeth into,” said Lisa Clements, SKY’s Head of Acquisitions, Entertainment and Movies. “Restoration is a clever premise with a great cast so a good fit for The ZONE, which as part of our basic package and therefore available to all SKY’s customers, so more than 2 million Kiwis have the opportunity to watch it when it premieres later this year.”
 
Producer Toby Gibson and co-producer Simon de Bruyn have also negotiated a deal with Virgin Australia, which will see the film being screened on its domestic and international in-flight entertainment system from September 2016.
