Netflix has ordered their first Australian original series, a supernatural crime drama titled TIDELANDS, co-created by Secret & Lies Stephen M. Irwin. He wrote the 10-episode first season produced by Hoodlum Entertainment and executive produced by co-creator Tracey Robertson, Nathan Mayfield and Leigh McGrath.

The series 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-guans called “Tidelanders.”

Robertson, Co-Creator and Co-Executive Producer of the show 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.”

Erik Barmack, Netflix’s VP International Original Series said:

“We’re proud the strong Australian storytellers are bringing their vision to the first Australian Netflix original series. We can’t wait to bring the mystery of TIDELANDS to our members around the world.”

Production is set to begin next year in Queensland to debut exclusively on the streaming site worldwide.
