Australian five-part drama series Cloudstreet has been picked up in the UK by Sky Atlantic.

Based around the award-winning Tim Winton novel, Cloudstreet was Showcase's highest-rating TV series of all time, earning the largest homegrown drama ratings for a subscription channel.

The series, starring New Zealand actress Kerry Fox, Stephen Curry, Essie Davis (The Matrix Reloaded), Emma Booth, Geoff Morrell, Todd Lasance (Home and Away) and Hugo Johnstone-Burt, is set in the 1940s and '50s.

It follows two rural families, the Pickles and the Lambs, who after suffering tragedies, move to the city, share a house and start their lives over again.

"Epic, cinematic, beautifully written and directed, and featuring extraordinary performances, Cloudstreet is a perfect fit for Sky Atlantic HD," said the channel's director Elaine Pyke.

Cloudstreet will air on Sky Atlantic later this year.
