The eight episode series follows Birdie Bell (Keddie), a beautiful, smart and brilliant magazine features writer who thinks she has found “the one” when she meets successful grazier Joe Burt (Wenham) on a dating app. Convinced by her well-meaning friends and family that this couldbe her very own happily ever after, Birdie begins to believe that it is finally her chance to live the fairy-tale. As cracks start to form in Joe's stories, Birdie soon discovers her boyfriend isn't all he has led her to believe. Asher, who is also producing, has had a recent break out in her career after starring in Stateless and Nine Perfect Strangers.
