on


Deadloch, a new Australian Amazon Original comedy series, has begun production, according to Prime Video, Guesswork Television, and OK Great Productions.

The series will star Kate Box, Madeleine Sami, Alicia Gardiner, and Nina Oyama and will be produced by comedic pair Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan. It will be shot entirely in Southern Tasmania.

From February to May 2022, acclaimed Australian directors Ben Chessell (The Great, Giri/Haji), Gracie Otto (The Moth Effect, Seriously Red), and Beck Cole (Black Comedy, Wentworth) will shoot the eight-part Tasmanian noir criminal comedy, with Andy Walker (Rosehaven, The Kettering Incident) producing.

The large ensemble cast led by Kate Box (Fires, Wentworth), Madeleine Sami (The Breaker Upperers), Alicia Gardiner (Wakefield, Offspring), and also includes comedian Tom Ballard, Nina Oyama (Utopia), Susie Youssef (Rosehaven), Pamela Rabe (Wentworth), Kris McQuade (Rosehaven), Duncan Fellows (The Letdown), Harvey Zielinski (Don’t Look Deeper), Shaun Martindale (The Tailings), Katie Robertson (Five Bedrooms), Nick Simpson-Deeks (Winners & Losers), Mia Morrissey (Home and Away), Leonie Whyman (Dark Place) and Mick Davies (Rosehaven) with Holly Austin, Kartanya Maynard and Naarah.

When a local man is discovered dead on the beach in Deadloch, Tasmania, the previously tranquil beachside village is left reeling. Fastidious local Senior Sergeant Dulcie Collins (Kate Box) and a tough as guts blow in from Darwin, Senior Investigator Eddie Redcliffe (Madeleine Sami), are pushed together to solve the case, along with their overeager junior constable Abby (Nina Oyama). As the town prepares for the annual Winter “Feastival” of arts, food, and culture, the trio must put their differences aside and work together to find the killer.

“Prime Video is proud to be bringing this fresh, hilarious and uniquely Australian story to life for our Prime members around the world,”

– said Erika North, head of originals, Asia Pacific, at Amazon Studios.

“The series is Amazon’s third scripted drama produced locally and we are thrilled to work with Guesswork Television and OK Great Productions to bring this Tasmanian Noir that ‘The Kates’ have masterfully created to Prime Video. We are beyond excited that actors Kate Box, Madeleine Sami, Alicia Gardiner and Nina Oyama have signed on to bring this mysterious world to life.”

Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan said,

“We are so incredibly thrilled to be bringing our story to life in lutruwita (Tasmania) with this extraordinary team of creatives. The fact that our Australian feminist noir crime comedy will launch globally on Prime Video for 200 million Prime members to see is mind-blowing. Powerhouses Kate Box and Madeleine Sami are leading a brilliant ensemble of actors. And most of all, we’re so grateful they’re all involved so that we never have to learn lines ever again.”

Kevin Whyte, Guesswork Television said,

“We loved Deadloch from the first moment the Kates shared it with us five years ago and when the team at Prime Video had the same instant excitement, we knew we had found our partners. Making TV with the Kates for the third time, being back in Tassie and working again with the incomparable Andy Walker makes Deadloch pretty much TV nirvana.”

Written by Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan along with Kim Wilson, Christian White, Anchuli Felicia King, Kristy Fisher and Madeleine Sami. Produced by Andy Walker, Showrunners/Producers Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan. Co-Producer Fiona McConaghy and Executive producers Kate McCartney, Kate McLennan, Kevin Whyte and Tanya Phegan.
