South Pacific Picutres and Shaftesbury to co-produce drama series for Acorn TV, Sky NZ & CBC

South Pacific Pictures (New Zealand), in association with production company Shaftesbury (Canada) announce that new thriller series THE SOUNDS (8 x 60) has been greenlit by Acorn Media Enterprises (AME), All3 Media, CBC and Sky NZ. The New Zealand-Canada co-production is created and written by bestselling New Zealand author Sarah-Kate Lynch and will be directed by Peter Stebbings (Frankie Drake Mysteries, Killjoys, Wynonna Earp). The series is currently filming on location in New Zealand and is slated for a 2020 release. 

An eight-part psychological thriller, THE SOUNDS is set against the stunning backdrop of New Zealand’s South Island and the exotic landscape of Marlborough Sounds. When Maggie and Tom Cabbott move to the town of Pelorus to escape the oppressive influence of Tom’s family, they plan to start a new business venture that will reinvigorate the local economy and set them on a new life path. But when Tom disappears, unsettling facts about him soon come to light, and the search brings long-buried wounds to the surface. As Maggie struggles to navigate the escalating events, it becomes clear that in this small, seemingly close-knit community, nothing and no one is quite what they seem.
