The series, which follows the story of two feuding detectives as they hunt down a killer who is leaving a trail of broken lives across Sydney, begins filming today.
The fast paced crime thriller is set to be told by multiple perspectives. Rachel Girffiths plays Grace Gibbs, a detective obsessed with tracking down the armed robber who murdered her junior officer.
Things get complicated as her new trainee Charlie Fung (Yoson An), blames Grace for the death of his best friend.
Meanwhile, on the outskirts of Sydney a violent fugitive is hiding. Over the course of one week, two more people will die and one will go missing…
