Out There is an Australian comedy-drama series following the trials and tribulations of an US high school boy named Reilly (Douglas Smith) who moves to Australia from Connecticut as his father flees the authorities. He stays with his aunt and uncle who are the owners of a nature reserve and veterinary clinic.[1]


In the series, Reilly is joined by a girl named Aggie Thackery (Jade Ewen), an intern from England. She is initially annoyed at his stubborn demeanor, but grows to like him. Reilly also makes friends with an eccentric local boy, Miller McKee (Richard Wilson). As the series develops, Reilly goes out with the girl next door, Fiona McDaniels, whilst Miller is turned down by Aggie, who does not yet return his strong feelings for her.

It was followed by a second series on the ABC in which Reilly returns to the America and is absent from the whole remainder of the series. A supposed intern from Texas named Tom (Cody Kasch) arrives, hoping for a 'new start', only to be discovered as a fraud and almost sent back to America. This season also develops three new supporting characters, the captain of Aggie's Netball team, Alice (Ashleigh Murray), who has secret affections for Miller, Gregor Krauss (Sean Kennedy), Aggie's short-lived love interest, and Miller's newfound stray dog, Hendrix.[2]
