Underbelly: Vanishing Act: trailer

First look at full trailer of Nine's upcoming Melissa Caddick miniseries.

Nine has released a trailer for Underbelly: Vanishing Act, a dramatisation of the Melissa Caddick saga starring Kate Atkinson (Wentworth, Jack Irish, SeaChange).

The cast also includes Colin Friels (Water Rats, BlackJack, Mystery Road), Tai Hara (Madam Secretary, Home and Away, Hyde & Seek), Maya Stange (Love Child, A Place to Call Home, Wolf Creek, Rake), Ursula Mills (Out of the Blue), and Sophie Bloom (Love Child, Amazing Grace, Reef Break).

This is a two part miniseries, expected in coming weeks.

Underbelly returns to Channel 9 in 2022, based on the real-life mystery that captivated the nation. Underbelly: Vanishing Act tells the story of the bizarre disappearance of Melissa Caddick, the high-roller who allegedly embezzled over $40 million before vanishing into thin air. It’s a mystery that has left Caddick’s family, clients and the police questioning everything they thought they knew about her.

Produced by Matt Ford and Kerrie Mainwaring, written by Matt Ford and Michael Miller and directed by Geoff Bennett, Underbelly: Vanishing Act is produced by Screentime (a Banijay Group company).

  1. i’ve said before i think its way too soon for this. Apart from other reasons, no one really knows for sure what has happened to her. The lead actress seems quite good in this trailer, but the rest of it a bit laughable really. Oh well, a few bare bums etc here & there and it should rate quite well. Schedule it to play the same night as Mafs, perfect!

  2. Not really sure why this is taking the name of underbelly, but it is an interesting story (what is known about it anyway) with high production values. I like the inclusion of actual 9 stars in the show to add some authenticity to their recreated mugshots, etc.

    I will check it out on catch up, but gee, that promo is pretty average. We’re told she stole $40 million, then the overblown vo tells us she stole $40 million. Not a huge fan of her narrating either from the grave, but hopefully it’s only used sparingly.
