ABC Studios Int’l & Stan set to launch global original

Australian streamer Stan is to launch a new original series by The Kettering Incident’s (pictured) Victoria Madden, in partnership with Disney’s ABC Studios International.

Eight-part series The Gloaming, will premiere on Stan in 2019. It is produced by Madden and John Molloy and will be distributed globally by ABC.

The series follows unorthodox, troubled, cop Molly McGee as she leads an investigation into the murder of an unidentified woman. To solve the case, Molly has to team up with Alex O’Connell – a man she hasn’t spoken to in twenty years – and they discover that the murder has links to a cold case from the past.

The Gloaming will be shot in Tasmania, against the backdrop of its capital city Hobart.

Australian companies Sweet Potato Films and 2 Jons will produce in association with Mushroom Pictures. Executive producers include Keli Lee, Rob Gibson, Nick Forward, Jon Adgemis and Michael Gudinski.

Stan’s hit series The Other Guy was also recently picked up in the US and Canada on Hulu and Super Channel, highlighting the international appeal of Stan originals.
