Netflix is continuing to prove it’s an unstoppable force of TV nature by snapping up the crime drama Tidelands. The show will be the platform’s first Australian series and will be produced by Hoodlum Entertainment, with Tracey Robertson, Nathan Mayfield and Leigh McGrath; who, also produced Secrets & Lies.
The show will be a blend of crime and the supernatural, with the show being set in a small town where the residents are half-Sirens, half-humans and called Tidelanders. The show will certainly not be a pure horror series in the vein of Scream or American Horror Story, but the teasing supernatural element sounds mighty intriguing.
When speaking about the show, Robertson said:
“We are excited to be partnering with Netflix on Tidelands – this story is one that has been itching to be told and we are thrilled to be making it on our home soil in Australia with fantastic creatives and highly skilled crews. The primeval landscapes of Queensland are a perfect setting to tell the story of betrayal, small town secrets, ancient mythology and, when it comes to family, explore whether blood really is thicker than water.”
Production on Tidelands will begin in Queensland in 2018, so watch this space.
