Undead set to rise on Glitch
Production will start in October on a new ABC supernatural drama about the undead.
The Matchbox Pictures production, as first revealed by TV Tonight, embraces elements of the supernatural.
Set in the fictional country town of Yoorana, the 6 x 1 hour series sees the run-down town take on a new life from the most unlikely of places… the past.
‘Yoorana’ becomes the gothic rural backdrop to a tale of love and redemption, of second chances gained and lost, of vengeance and forgiveness. As the “Risen” discover who they are and why they have returned, those around them are also faced with a perplexing new reality, challenging all the beliefs and ideals they held dear.
Glitch is created by Tony Ayres (Cut Snake, The Slap, Nowhere Boys, The Home Song Stories), developed by Ayres and Louise Fox (Broadchurch, Dead Europe, Love My Way), and produced by Ewan Burnett ( The Mystery of a Hansom Cab, Small Time Gangster, Dead Gorgeous) and Louise Fox.
Tony Ayres, pictured, said “Glitch is a high concept show which uses genre to explore primal human emotions. In supporting us, the ABC has shown yet again their commitment to bold, ground breaking Australian television. ”
The series is being sold internationally by NBCUniversal and will air on ABC TV at a later date.
