Netflix has announced the cast of Pine Gap, the new spy thriller produced by Screentime, makers of the hit series Janet King, Underbelly, and ANZAC Girls.
Heading the cast of Pine Gap are Parker Sawyers (Deep state, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit), Tess Haubrich (Wolf Creek, Home and Away), Jacqueline McKenzie (Romper Stomper the Series, The 4400), Steve Toussaint (Inspector Lewis, Scott & Bailey), Stephen Curry (The Time of Our Lives, The Secret Life of Us), Mark Leonard Winter (Cleverman, Top of the Lake), and Sachin Joab (Jack Irish, Neighbours).
They are joined by Kelton Pell (The Gods of Wheat Street), Lewis Fitz-Gerald (Crownies), Madeleine Madden (Picnic at Hanging Rock), Alice Keohavong (Redfern Now), Edwina Wren (Hunters), Jason Chong (All Saints), and Simone Kessell (Terra Nova).
Set in the intensely secretive world of intelligence and the eponymous US/Australia joint defense facility in central Australia, Pine Gap delves into the alliance between the two countries. With a new global player encroaching and the world inching closer to war, trust, betrayal, love, and loyalty all come into question.
What do you do for the liberal world order? What do you do for your country? What do you do for those you love? And what do you do for yourself?
Commissioned by Netflix and the ABC, Pine Gap is created by showrunner Greg Haddrick (Home and Away) and co-writer Felicity Packard (Underbelly) and directed by Mat King (Wentworth). The producers are Lisa Scott (Janet King) and Felicity Packard, and the executive producers are Rory Callaghan (Offspring), Bob Campbell (Cloudstreet), and Greg Haddrick, as well as the ABC’s Sally Riley (Glitch) and Brett Sleigh (Rosehaven).
With major support from the South Australian Film Corporation and the South Australian State Government, the six-hour series is filming across multiple locations in South Australia and the Northern Territory.
