Prime Video’s newest Australian Original series, Deadloch, will launch exclusively on the streaming service on June 2nd, 2023 and it’s all anyone who considers themselves a joke-loving intellectual can talk about.
This noir comedy is a unique, twist on the murder-mystery and comedy genres. Created, written, and produced by the powerhouse creative team, the iconic and comedic duo, ‘The Kates’ (Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan), it’s sure to elicit a ton of laughs. The duo are also behind the popular Australian TV shows Get Krack!n and The Katering Show.
The series is being described as a “cinematic and moody crime series that blends humour, mystery, and suspense while challenging societal norms”. It sounds like something we’ll definitely be bingeing.
The community of the fictional, sleepy Tasmanian town of Deadloch is shaken when the corpse of a local man washes up on a beach.
In order to get to the bottom of the mysterious death, two vastly different female detectives with clashing personalities — fastidious local Senior Sergeant Dulcie Collins and rough-as-guts Darwin blow-in, Senior Investigator Eddie Redcliffe — are required to put their differences aside and team up to solve the crime.
Deadloch flips the crime genre on its head and challenges traditional ideologies around what shows of this nature should look like. The series puts characters that don’t often get a voice at the forefront, and highlights the idea that you can’t move forward until you deal with the past.
The Kates have carefully selected their cast, leaning on many well-known names to bring the series to life. See Kate Box (Wentworth) as Senior Sergeant Dulcie Collins, Madeleine Sami (The Breaker Upperers) as Eddie Radcliffe, Nina Oyama (Utopia) as Abby Matsuda, and comedian Tom Ballard as Sven Alderman.
