The main cast have been announced for the joint Netflix / ABC drama series “Pine Gap”. The lead cast includes: Parker Sawyers (“Southside With You”), Tess Haubrich (“Alien: Covenant”), Jacqueline McKenzie(“Romper Stomper”), Steve Toussaint (“Fortitude”), Stephen Curry (“Hounds of Love”), Mark Leonard Winter (“Top of the Lake”) and Sachin Joab (“Neighbours”). Production for the series has now started but there are no dates yet. As with other co-productions, it is likely that it will air on TV in Australia and be distributed as a Netflix Original everywhere else in the world.
Set in the intensely secretive world of intelligence and the enigmatic US/Australia joint defense facility in central Australia, PINE GAP delves into the famously strong 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?
