Taking cue from the stellar response the political drama House of Cards received, Netflix – along with ABC – has commissioned Screentime, to produce Pine Gap -a six hour international political thriller. The series will be produced by Lisa Scott and Felicity Packard and executive produced by Screentime’s Bob Campbell, Rory Callaghan and Greg Haddrick, and the ABC’s Sally Riley and Kym Goldsworthy.
It will expose the stress inflicted on nations and individuals when ultimate loyalty is under threat, and true motives endanger the famously strong American/Australian joint military alliance through conflicting interests, personal ideals and one tragic mistake.
The pre-production will commence in Adelaide in November and the crew will film across multiple locations in South Australia and the Northern Territory in 2018.
Apart from some never-heard-stories, we, at TheDigitalHash, believe that you will have a rocking time comparing the similarities of reel life with real life a la House of Cards and Occupied.
