Spectrum Originals Picks Up Australian Drama ‘Eden’ – .
Spectrum Originals headed down under to find its latest international drama – the Australian thriller Eden.
The broadcaster Charter Communications recorded the drama with eight episodes, which comes from the Australian streamer Stan and the distributor All3Media International. It will air in 2021.

Eden revolves around an idyllic waterfront city that holds some very dark secrets. What follows is the disappearance of a girl in Byron Bay, an Australian city that seems to be paradise. Each episode is told from a different character’s perspective, and the mystery unfolds through multiple lenses as the secrets that bind that supposed nirvana are revealed.
The cast includes Sophie Wilde (Vogel), Samuel Johnson Oam (The Secret Lives of Us), Bebe Bettencourt (The Dry), Christopher James Baker (True Detective), Cody Fern (American detective story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace) and Keiynan Lonsdale (The Flash), Claude Jabbour (Stateless) and Cassandra Sorrell (Plastic).
