Netflix Orders Aussie Original Series “Tidelands”

Netflix has ordered the supernatural crime drama “Tidelands,” the streaming giant’s first Australian original series.

“Secrets & Lies” scribe Stephen M. Irwin co-created and will pen the ten-episode first season which follows a former criminal as she returns home to the small fishing village of Orphelin Bay.

When the body of a local fisherman washes ashore, she must uncover the town’s secrets while investigating its strange inhabitants – a group of dangerous half-Sirens, half-humans called ‘Tidelanders’.

Tracey Robertson, Nathan Mayfield and Leigh McGrath will executive produce. Filming begins next year in Queensland and the series will debut exclusively on Netflix worldwide.
