SeaChange: Series 1-2 (AU)

Sigrid Thornton (Wentworth, The Code, Underbelly) leads the cast of this multiple award-winning comedy-drama as Laura Gibson, a corporate lawyer whose professional and personal lives crumble, prompting her to undergo a sea change. So Laura uproots herself and her two children and leaves the big city (and her cheating and now-arrested husband) for the (fictional) small coastal town of Pearl Bay, where she gets a job as the magistrate and gets acquainted with the colorful locals.

Costars include John Howard (All Saints), Kerry Armstrong (Bed of Roses), Kate Atkinson (Jack Irish), Kevin Harrington (Fat Tony & Co), and Georgina Naidu (Playing for Keeps).

Available in North America for the first time since the show premiered in 1998, Seachange: Series 1-2 makes its debut in the US and Canada on Monday, April 27, exclusively on Acorn TV and its digital channels, including Acorn TV on Amazon.

Wolf Creek: Season 2 (AU)

Based on the cult-hit “Wolf Creek” horror movie franchise, Season 2 of this thriller-horror series consists of a brand new story from the one in the first season. This time serial killer Mick Taylor (John Jarratt, McLeod’s Daughters) hits the proverbial jackpot with a group of thirteen unsuspecting international tourists on an adventure of a lifetime in the Outback. But their chance encounter with Mick sets them on a journey that none of them ever could have imagined… or wanted.

This season features Matt Day (Rake), Tess Haubrich (Pine Gap), Jason Chong (Pine Gap), Charlie Clausen (Home & Away), Chris Haywood (Rake), Stephen Hunter (The Hobbit Trilogy), Christopher Kirby (Secret City), Ben Oxenbould (Mr Inbetween), and Laura Wheelwright (Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries).

Wolf Creek: Season 2 premieres in the US, Canada, and UK on Thursday, April 30, exclusively on Shudder and its digital channels, including Shudder on Amazon.


Straight Forward (NZ-DK)

In this international crime thriller, crime boss Ravn (Mark Mitchinson, Dear Murderer) murders con woman Silvia’s (Cecilie Stenspil, Seaside Hotel, The Protectors) father in cold blood, so she robs Ravn of millions of krone in revenge. Then things go sideways and Silvia is forced to flee from Denmark to New Zealand, while her mother (Vibeke Hastrup, Unit One) and daughter (Marie Boda, Heartless) retreat to a safe house in Denmark. As Silvia starts a new life under a new identity, she must stay ahead of her pursuers and stay alive, as well as save her family from Ravn from the other side of the world.

Filmed in Queenstown, New Zealand, and Copenhagen, Denmark, and shown in English and Danish (with English subtitles), Straight Forward begins streaming Thursday, April 2, on Sundance Now and its digital channels, including Sundance Now on Amazon.
