Elizabeth’s new show shall begin airing soon (4th July) and another sneak peek has been released. This sneak peek can be found on the site, as it has no embed option. However I have included the synopsis below. I have also added a new promotional to the gallery, which you can find following the link below the post.
Anna Macy left Kettering when she was just 14, shortly after her best friend, Gillian Baxter mysteriously disappeared. The two girls had been playing in the forbidden forests outside Kettering when they saw strange lights in the sky. Eight hours later, Anna was found alone, terrified and covered in blood.
15 years on, Anna returns to find the town struggling to survive. The forests have been marked for logging and the community is being torn apart by passionate but violent clashes between environmentalists and the local loggers.
Time might have passed but Anna’s reappearance causes a stir. Theories and rumours persist about what really happened to the girls that night – from Anna killing Gillian to alien abduction. Then another girl suddenly disappears. Has she run away or has something more sinister happened? If so, by whom or what, and why? Is it linked to Gillian’s disappearance all those years ago?
As painful memories start to surface, Anna is drawn to discover what really happened the night Gillian disappeared, uncovering secrets buried deep in her mind and the heart of Kettering and its people.
An awesome review of Elizabeth’s new TV project The Kettering Project has been published by the Guardian. Below is a little snippet, however there is a link to read the rest to avoid potential spoilers. The Guardian also awarded it 4/5 stars!
Australia’s smallest state is the undeniable star – along with Elizabeth Debicki – of Foxtel’s new eight-part thriller about the disappearance of two girls.
“It’s a very personal story,” The Kettering Incident co-creator Vicki Madden says. “Not just my personal journey – a very Tasmanian story.”
It’s Wednesday, and Madden, her co-creator Vincent Sheehan and the core cast of Kettering are at Hobart’s Museum of Old and New Art to present a two-episode preview of Foxtel’s new eight-part thriller. It’s hard to disagree with Madden. Kettering, which won the prestigious Series Mania award when it premiered in Paris in April, is 21st century Tasmanian gothic par excellence. (Read: Tasmanian gothic with a shake of science fiction.)
And Tasmania is, without question, the star of the show – with apologies to lead actress Elizabeth Debicki, whose Hollywood ascendancy meant she was stuck in Los Angeles and couldn’t attend the preview. Her co-star Matthew Le Nevez describes Debicki as “a beautiful, intelligent and emotionally complex actor; she worked harder than anyone and sacrificed her physical self”.
The Kettering Incident begins airing in Australia on the 4th July and this news article was posted on the Herald Sun.
THE Kettering Incident may have taken the long way around to the small screen — after filming wrapped back in 2014 — but a sneak peek at the first two episodes of the showcase series packed enough in it to have this TV Insider now desperate for more.
The $14 million, eight-part psychological thriller has already been hailed as Tasmania’s answer to Twin Peaks, but more contemporary comparisons to the Top Of The Lake and the recent revival of The X-Files should give TV noir fans an idea of the dark and brooding drama that awaits.
Elizabeth Debicki, the sizzling star of BBCFirst’s The Night Manager, plays Anna Macy, who returns to her home town of Kettering from her troubled life as a doctor in London, only to find herself under suspicion by the locals.
The ensemble cast includes Matt Le Nevez, who made a calculated career turn away from his most popular role as Offspring’s loved-and-lost Dr Patrick Reid — this time impressive as sinister senior detective Brian Dutch.
In supporting roles, Sacha Horler (Secret City), Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film), Ben Oxenbould (Hey Dad), Damien Garvey (Rake), Henry Nixon (All Saints) and newcomer Tilda Cobham-Hervey all immediately shine.
Created and written by Vicki Madden (The Bill, Blood Brothers), directed by Rowan Woods (Little Fish, The Broken Shore) and produced by Madden and Vincent Sheehan (Animal Kingdom, Rover), it was an ambitious project which has already earned international applause and a special jury prize at a French festival when in premiered over there in April.
