Redenbach will work with director David Caesar, who is directing two episodes. 

"I’m so grateful to the Australian Directors Guild, Screen Australia, Matchbox Pictures and of course to David Caesar for this exciting opportunity", Redenbach said. 

"The chance to work with a filmmaker of David’s calibre is just thrilling. I’m appreciative that such opportunities exist and offer my sincere thanks to everyone who makes the Directors Attachment Scheme possible."

Redenbach has form as a screenwriter (Spirited, Rush), as well as a writer/director, with her latest short Tender premiering in the International Competition at Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival and winning the Australian Directors Guild Award for Best Short Film.

Hide and Seek is the story of a routine murder investigation that leads to the uncovering of an international network of identity fraud. 

Production will take place in Sydney.

“Matchbox Pictures are proud to have Jessica Redenbach a talented writer/director as an attachment on Hide and Seek", said producer Stephen Corvini. 

"Matchbox thanks and acknowledges the importance of the ADG’s efforts to up-skill our next generation of directors."

This is the second of three ADG attachments on TV drama so far this year.

Previous attachments include Chris Stollery on House Husbands with Grant Brown, Julietta Boscolo on Playmaker’s Love Child with Geoff Bennett, and Nora Niasari on Matchbox’s Secret City with Emma Freeman.
