Created, written, and executive produced by Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan (Get Krack!n, The Katering Show), the mysterious and moody Deadloch puts a comedic spin on the crime genre and questions Australia’s relationship with truth, gender, and race, while keeping viewers guessing (and laughing) at every turn.

Leading the cast are Kate Box (Wentworth, Rake), Madeleine Sami (The Bad Seed, Top of the Lake), Nina Oyama (Utopia, Class of ’07), Tom Ballard (Tonightly with Tom Ballard), and Alicia Gardiner (Wakefield, Offspring).

Also in the ensemble cast are 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), Mick Davies (Rosehaven), Holly Austin, Kartanya Maynard, and Naarah.

Set in Deadloch, a once-sleepy seaside hamlet is Tasmania, Deadloch sees the town’s residents reeling when a local man turns up dead on the beach. Thrown together to solve the case are two female detectives: fastidious local senior sergeant Dulcie Collins (Kate Box) and a rough-as-guts blow-in from Darwin, senior investigator Eddie Redcliffe (Madeleine Sami). Working alongside them is overeager junior constable Abby (Nina Oyama). As the town prepares to launch the Winter Feastival, the annual arts, food, and culture event, the investigating trio will have to put their differences aside and work together to find the killer.

Deadloch, an Amazon Original, premieres globally with three episodes on Friday, June 2, exclusively on Prime Video. New episodes will debut singly on Fridays through July 7.

Shot in and around Hobart, Tasmania, Deadloch, a production of Guesswork Television, OK Great Productions, and Amazon Studios, is directed by Ben Chessell (The Great, Giri/Haji), Gracie Otto (The Moth Effect, Seriously Red), and Beck Cole (Black Comedy, Wentworth).

The eight-part series is written by Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan, along with Kim Wilson, Christian White, Anchuli Felicia King, Kristy Fisher, and Madeleine Sami. It is produced by Andy Walker (Rosehaven, The Kettering Incident) and showrunners/producers Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan, with Fiona McConaghy co-producing and Kate McCartney, Kate McLennan, Kevin Whyte, and Tanya Phegan executive producing.
