Ryan created the series, which was directed by Edgerton. They executive produce with Jason Burrows. Michele Bennett is a producer. FX Productions, Blue-Tongue Films, Jungle Entertainment, Screen Australia and Create NSW produce.

Mr Inbetween was first commissioned by FX Australia It had its world premiere in the inaugural Indie Episodic, Shorts and Special Event programming section at this year's Sundance Film Festival.

"Mr Inbetween is an extraordinary achievement for Scott Ryan, who took it from an indie film with a cult following to a half-hour drama that he stars in," said Eric Schrier, President of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions. "Scott is one of those rare creators who can bring his own character to life on screen, and he is perfectly paired with Nash Edgerton, who brilliantly directed all six episodes. This project is a great inaugural step with Foxtel as the home of FX Original Series in Australia."

"I couldn't be happier to be sharing Scott Ryan's character Ray with as many people as possible, and Scott and I Couldn't be more excited to have Mr Inbetween on FX and Foxtel," said Edgerton.
