ABC TV is thrilled to announce that filming starts next week on the intriguing six-part drama series Glitch.
Written and produced by the outstanding team from Matchbox Pictures (The Slap, Old School, Nowhere Boys, Devil’s Playground), Glitch is an epic paranormal saga about love, loss and what it means to be human, that will leave you thinking long after the credits have rolled.
Featuring an impressive cast led by Australia’s new leading-man Patrick Brammall (Upper Middle Bogan, Offspring), other cast include: Emma Booth, Emily Barclay, Rodger Corser, Genevieve O’Reilly, Andrew McFarlane, Daniela Farinacci, Sean Keenan and Ned Dennehy.
When Senior Constable James Hayes (Patrick Brammall), a police officer in the small town of Yoorana, is called out to the local cemetery in the middle of the night, he makes a discovery that turns his world upside down. Six people have inexplicably risen from the dead in perfect health.
With no memory of their identities, disbelief soon gives way to a determination to discover who they are and what happened to them. But the case becomes deeply personal for James when he recognises one of the risen. It’s not long before it’s clear that the risen are linked in some way, and someone knows the truth about how and why they have returned.
“How do ordinary people deal with great love, longing and the utterly unexpected? This is an exciting drama from a hugely talented creative team.” says ABC Head of Fiction Carole Sklan
Matchbox Pictures Executive Producer Tony Ayres says “Matchbox is privileged to be working with the ABC on their first adult paranormal drama. Glitch is a wild ride of a show which aims to intrigue, excite and move its audience.”
Glitch will be filmed on location in Melbourne and around Victoria and will air on ABC in 2015.
