MaveriX: the largest local production ever to be filmed in Red Centre

A new adrenaline-fuelled TV series set against the spectacular backdrop of Central Australia and showcasing iconic landmarks around Alice Springs will inject $5 million into the Territory economy and employ nearly 400 people when filming begins next year.

The Northern Territory Government is investing $1.5 million into MaveriX - the largest locally produced screen project in the Northern Territory’s history. The 10 x 30 minute episode series is set in the world of motocross, starring a diverse group of teenagers driven to succeed in their chosen sport.

Alice Springs based production house, Brindle Films, will shoot the series over three months next year which will provide employment opportunities for nearly 400 Territorians.

The $5 million production investment will be spent across jobs, goods, and services including accommodation, transport, catering / hospitality and set building materials.
