A new BBC One and Stan mystery thriller, 'The Tourist' will begin filming in South Australian autumn 2021.

The six-part drama series (from Two Brothers Pictures: 'Fleabag', 'The Missing') follows a man who, after losing his memory, undertakes a quest to unlock the secrets of his identity before those who are trying to kill him catch up with him.

While it sounds like the Christopher Nolan-Guy Pearce 2000 movie 'Memento', this isn't a reboot but an entirely new project.

Filming is expected to take place predominantly in regional areas of South Australia, as well as Adelaide.

"'The Tourist' is a departure from anything we've written before," Harry and Jack William, writers and Managing Directors of Two Brothers Pictures, says.

"It isn't an easy show to categorise – so we won't. We are, however, hugely excited to have Chris Sweeney on board as director, and to be making this for the BBC and Stan. We're thankful for their support of this ambitious project."

Stan CEO Mike Sneesby added: "Stan is pleased to be working with BBC, Two Brothers Pictures and Highview Productions on this world-class local production.

"We are grateful for the support of the Australian Government and the South Australian Film Corporation whose assistance has been critical for the development of this significant international project."

'The Tourist' will receive $3.6 million in support from the Morrison Government's Location Incentive programme.
