The Australian crime drama “Black Snow” has been obtained by the BBC for airing on both BBC Four and BBC iPlayer. Starring Travis Fimmel (known for roles in “Vikings” and “Danger Close”), Jemmason Power, Talijah Blackman-Corowa, Eden Cassady, Seini Willett, and Gulliver McGrath (recognized for appearances in “Dark Shadows” and “Lincoln”), this six-part series unfolds its plot.
The narrative centres around a small-town Australian high school, where a gathering takes place to ceremonially unveil a time capsule buried by a class nearly two decades prior. The event occurs shortly after the tragic murder of a classmate named Isabelle Baker. As the capsule is opened, a surprising revelation emerges – cryptic messages are found within Isabelle’s written statement.
These enigmatic messages, along with other items that had long been lost, imply that Isabelle was aware of the danger she faced in the days leading up to her untimely death. This discovery prompts the reopening of the case, causing profound anguish for her family and unearthing unsettling questions that some individuals are reluctant to address.
Sue Deeks, Head of BBC Programme Acquisition, says: “Australia’s South Sea Island community is the fascinating setting for this dark and haunting murder mystery – its twists and turns will keep viewers guessing until the very end.”
The BBC secured the rights to “Black Snow” (comprising six episodes, each lasting 55 minutes) through a deal with All3Media International. The series was created by Goalpost Pictures and originally produced for Stan in Australia, as well as Sundance Now in the United States.
