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), Glitch is described as ‘a tale of love and redemption, of second chances gained and lost, of vengeance and forgiveness.’
Tony Ayres, said, “Glitch is an elevated genre series. At its core it is a gothic mystery with a story that is passionate and dramatic.”
“How do ordinary people deal with great love, longing and the utterly unexpected? This is an exciting drama from a hugely talented creative team”, said ABC Head of Fiction Carole Sklan.
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.
When six people inexplicably rise from the dead with no memory of their identities, disbelief soon gives way to a determination to discover who they are and what happened to them. Yoorana becomes the gothic rural backdrop against which the “Risen” rediscover their past and why they have returned while those around them are also faced with a perplexing new reality, challenging all the beliefs and ideals they held dear.
Glitch is produced by Matchbox Pictures with the assistance of Screen Australia, Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Film Victoria and NBCUniversal. The series is being sold internationally by NBCUniversal.
