Shepparton News - - NEWS -

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.
