The BBC has secured the rights to the gripping new Australian mystery series "High Country" for BBC iPlayer and its TV channels. Produced by Curio Pictures and Sony Pictures Television, the eight-part thriller is inspired by true events and follows detective Andrea (Andie) Whitford, played by Leah Purcell, as she investigates the mysterious disappearance of five people in the Victorian High Country.

The series, characterized by its eerie setting and tense atmosphere, promises a high-stakes, edge-of-the-seat narrative. Andie Whitford's investigation unravels a complex web of murder, deceit, and revenge, keeping viewers on tenterhooks throughout.

"High Country" boasts a stellar cast, including Leah Purcell (Wentworth, Drover's Wife: The Legend of Molly Johnson), Ian McElhinney (Game of Thrones, Derry Girls), Sara Wiseman (Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes, A Place to Call Home), and Aaron Pedersen (Mystery Road, Jack Irish).

Sue Deeks, Head of BBC Programme Acquisition, expressed her excitement: "With its eerie setting and tense atmosphere, High Country is a gripping new take on Australian rural noir."

The series is a production of Curio Pictures, a subsidiary of Sony Pictures Television, in association with Rage Media. It was created by Marcia Gardner and John Ridley. The executive producers include Jo Porter and Rachel Gardner (Curio Pictures), Lana Greenhalgh and Penny Win (Foxtel Group), and Marcia Gardner and John Ridley (Rage Media), with Pino Amenta and Sue Edwards serving as producers.

"High Country" promises to deliver an enthralling mystery that will captivate audiences when it premieres on BBC iPlayer and TV channels.
