Intriguing political thriller
Netflix has teamed up with the ABC to commission a political thriller filmed in Adelaide and the Northern Territory and created by the team who made the Underbelly series. Pine Gap will be a six-part TV show set in and around the United States and Australia joint defence facility of the same name, near Alice Springs, after a civilian plane is shot down.
‘‘Pine Gap is shrouded in intrigue for many Australians. It’s the perfect anchor and a timely subject for an Australian drama that can resonate both locally and with a global audience,’’ ABC director of television David Anderson said.
Screentime, the production company behind Underbelly and
Janet King, has been commissioned to produce the show.
Pre-production will start in Adelaide in November and the series will film across multiple locations in South Australia and the Northern Territory next year.
