It is produced by Tony Ayres Productions, supported by NBCU, and written by showrunner Chayko, Jacquelin Perske, Mirrah Foulkes, Steven McGregor and Anya Beyersdorf.

Executive producers include Tony Ayres, Andrea Denholm and Liz Watts. Elisa Argenzio is a producer. Michael Rymer (Hannibal), Ana Kokkinos (The hunt) and Kim Mordaunt (Wakefield) are also confirmed as directors of the series and filming has officially started in Melbourne and the Victoria area.

Ayres said: “Like the rest of the world, I have watched the devastation caused by the recent mega-fires in Australia with horror. I asked myself “how can we react as artists?” The response has been to tell the stories of some of the people who have been through this global catastrophe, so that we will never forget what they have been through and always remember our responsibility for change.

Belinda Chayko added, “So many people were affected by the 2019/2020 fires and we wanted to honor their experiences and the losses they suffered – to make sure their stories are not forgotten. Fires is a series about ordinary people caught up in the unimaginable and how they came together in the face of a devastating natural disaster.
