Lockie Leonard is an award-winning children’s television production filmed on location in Albany in 2007 and 2009 in two 26-part series. The first series was based directly on Tim Winton’s three Lockie Leonard novels, published from 1990 to 1997. Story lines for the second series were developed by the producers.
Like many of Winton’s works, Lockie Leonard is set in the fictional town of Angelus, which is based on his former hometown Albany.
Lockie Leonard starred Sean Keenan, Rhys Muldoon and Briony Williams. Keenan won the Young Actor Award in 2007. The first series was named Best Children’s Drama and Best Children’s Television Series in the same year, and in 2008 it won a Logie Award for Best Children’s Television Series.
Lockie Leonard has screened in Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and the United States of America.
