In May last year Netflix announced its first Australian original series, Tidelands – a supernatural crime drama that will debut exclusively on Netflix around the globe with production set to start in Queensland this year.
What wasn’t revealed at the time was the cast of the Netflix Original.
An anonymous source contacted Cinema Australia yesterday and revealed that Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess) Elsa Pataky (12 Strong), Charlotte Best (Skinford) and Brad McMurray (Pawno) will star in the series.
According to our source Thomas Cocqueral (OtherLife) has also been cast.
Tidelands follows a former criminal as she returns home to the small fishing village of Orphelin Bay. When the body of a local fisherman washes ashore, she must uncover the town’s secrets while investigating its strange inhabitants, a group of dangerous half-Sirens, half-humans called “Tidelanders.”
There’s no word yet on a release date for the series.
