In today's edition of 'Former Home And Away stars killing it in Hollywood' is Luke Mitchell revealing the first tantalising trailer for his new show: The Republic of Sarah.
If you follow the ex-Summer Bay star online you would have seen plenty of glimpses behind-the-scenes teasing the new series.
The show centres on a small town facing destruction at the hands of a greedy mining company.
As a result, history teacher Sarah Cooper (played by Stella Baker, daughter of Simon Baker) comes up with a highly unconventional idea that involves the town using a loophole to establish itself as its own country.

"Citing various historical maps, she explains that the land on which Greylock sits was never properly claimed by the United States," the official show synopsis reads.
"If Sarah and her friends can convince the town to vote for independence, Greylock would gain international sovereignty and could protect its land for good."
So where does Luke come in?
The 36-year-old plays Sarah's estranged brother, Danny, who "after enduring a difficult childhood at the hands of his mother," finds himself back home and "eager to exact his revenge on a community he feels abandoned him."

Taking to Instagram, Luke shared the trailer along with the caption: "Very excited to share with you the first trailer for our new show #TheRepublicOfSarah! 🙌."
The CW-produced series is due to premiere on Monday June 14th in the U.S. however exactly where and when we can tune in down under is yet to be confirmed.
Luke's wife and fellow Home And Away star Rebecca Breeds has also been making a name for herself overseas with her new series Clarice, which is available on Stan, launching recently, too.

The couple has been filming their respective series in separate cities.
Speaking recently to TV WEEK Rebecca revealed what it was like having to live apart.
"Even when we're apart, we remind each other, 'You're meant to be doing this and I'm meant to be doing this by your side,'" She said. "It's an incredible adventure and by sharing it we enrich each other's lives."
