Stan today announced it has commissioned two new series. Bloom is a new 6 part mystery drama and The Gloaming is a bold 8 part drama series from the creator of The Kettering Incident.
Bloom is set one year after a devastating flood kills five locals in a idyllic country town, where a mysterious new plant appears with the power to restore their youth. It’s a gift of power beyond the wildest imagining. A phenomenon so formidable that attempting to harness its potency mean re-evaluating everything that’s important. It’s a miracle someone will kill to keep secret.
Bloom will be produced by Playmaker in partnership with Sony Pictures Television.
Playmakers credits include the critically lauded The Code and Love Child. Sony Pictures Television have been one Stan’s most significant partners since the streaming services launch with shows such as Better Call Saul, Transparent, Preacher and Mozart In The Jungle.
The Gloaming is produced by Madden and John Molloy (Molly, Boys in the Trees), and in partnership with Disney’s ABC Studios International, with Disney Media Distribution taking the show to audiences globally, The Gloaming will be shot in Tasmania, against the stunning backdrop of Tasmania’s capital city Hobart and the island’s darkly seductive landscapes.
Following on from her enthralling series The Kettering Incident, Madden has created a new genre-bending original drama series. The Gloaming: the twilight space where light meets dark, the space between awake and asleep, where time passes but secrets linger… Unorthodox, troubled cop Molly McGee leads an investigation into the murder of an unidentified woman. To solve the case, Molly has to team up with Alex O’Connell – a man she hasn’t spoken to in twenty years – and they discover that the murder has links to a cold case from the past. What begins as a routine investigation exposes something more insidious, and to catch the killer, Molly and Alex have to face the ghosts of their past.
Bloom will premiere exclusively to Stan this Summer, while The Gloaming will premiere in 2019.
