Netflix has unveiled the official trailer for their first Australian original series Tidelands (which you can watch in the player above). They’ve also confirmed the series will premiere globally on December 14th 2018.

The eight-part drama series, which was filmed exclusively in Queensland, stars a roster of incredible Australian actors including Aaron Jakubenko, Peter O’Brien, Madeleine Madden, Caroline Brazier, Dalip Sondhi, leading lady Charlotte Best and, of course, honourary-Australian Elsa Pataky (who is married to Chris Hemsworth).

Elsa Pataky and Charlotte Best star in Tidelands.

Tidelands follows Cal McTeer (Charlotte Best), a young woman who returns home to the small fishing village of Orphelin Bay after spending ten years in juvenile detention, then jail.

When the body of a local fisherman washes ashore, the town’s relationship with drug smuggling is put on public display, and Cal must uncover the town’s well-hidden secrets.

Cal investigates a group of outcasts who live in a hidden pocket of the bay: a group of half-Siren, half-human “Tidelanders” led by the alluring Adrielle Cuthbert (Elsa Pataky).

Elsa stars as Adrielle, leader of the Tidelanders.

Tidelands is produced by Emmy and BAFTA award-winning Australian production company Hoodlum, and is written by creator Stephen M. Irwin (Secrets & Lies) and Leigh McGrath.

Executive Producer Tracey Robinson, who is behind Brisbane-based Hoodlum, is thrilled to be partnering with Netflix in order to bring this show to life.

“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,” Tracey says.
