Emma Booth and Ewen Leslie to star in The Gloaming

Stan, Screen Tasmania and Screen Australia today announced that acclaimed AACTA Award-winning performers Emma Booth (Glitch, Once Upon A Time, Hounds of Love) and Ewen Leslie (The Cry, Safe Harbour, The Daughter) head up the cast of the ground-breaking new Stan Original Series The Gloaming.

Production has commenced in Tasmania on the brand-new eight-part premium drama, with celebrated showrunner Vicki Madden (The Kettering Incident) at the helm. Joining Booth and Leslie in the cast are Aaron Pedersen (Mystery Road, Jack Irish), Kiwi actress Rena Owen (Star Wars, Longmire), Matt Testro (Nowhere Boys, Neighbours) and newcomer Josephine Blazier, with more cast to be announced soon.

When an unidentified woman is found brutally murdered, Detective Molly McGee (Emma Booth) must team up with Alex O'Connell (Ewen Leslie), a fellow cop with whom she shares a tragic past to solve the crime. What begins as a routine investigation exposes something more insidious as political corruption and shady business dealings intertwine with sinister crimes and occult practices. To catch the killer, Molly and Alex have to face the ghosts of their past, the unsettled dead that linger in the liminal space between light and dark, life and death The Gloaming.

Stan Original Series The Gloaming will be directed by a line-up of internationally renowned, Australian talent including Michael Rymer (Hannibal, Battlestar Galactica, American Horror Story), Greg McLean (Wolf Creek, Jungle) and Sian Davies (Reef Break, Wentworth). Created by Madden, the series is a co-production with Stan and Disney's ABC Studios International, developed by Madden's Sweet Potato Films and John Molloy's 2 Jons and produced by Madden. Molloy and Fiona McConaghy with Keli Lee, Nick Forward, Jon Adgemis and Michael Gudinski are executive producing.

The series received major production funding from the Tasmanian Government through Screen Tasmania and Screen Australia, in association with Film Victoria, and was financed with support from Stan. Currently filming in various locations across Tasmania, The Gloaming will premiere exclusively on Stan this summer, with the premium drama to be distributed by Disney's Global Content Sales and Distribution, a part of the Company's Direct-to-Consumer & International segment

Said Madden: To have the opportunity once again to create a series based in Tasmania is a great privilege. Its gothic landscape and haunted past have inspired me since I was a child. I'm thrilled to have Emma Booth and Ewen Leslie bring my beloved Molly and Alex to life, and Stan and ABC Studios International on board to share The Gloaming with audiences around the world.

Stan's Chief Content Officer, Nick Forward, said We're thrilled to be collaborating with our international partner ABC Studios International in taking Vicki Madden's next trailblazing project to audiences in Australia and around the world. We can't wait to see how Vicki and the phenomenal production team bring the mysterious world of The Gloaming to life. We are also grateful to the state and national screen bodies who play such a vital role in these projects.

ABC Studios International is thrilled to join forces with these incredible partners on our first production with Stan. This exciting, innovative project brings together a stellar cast and a visionary creative team, said Keli Lee, Managing Director International Content Platforms and Talent for ABC Studios International.

The Minister for the Arts, Elise Archer said the Tasmanian Government, through Screen Tasmania, had supported the series from its earliest incarnation as a pitch from Vicki Madden.

It is incredibly exciting to see that the cameras are now rolling and I am sure that Tasmanians will be very proud of the part our State is playing in this world-class production.

The Tasmanian Government is investing $1 million in The Gloaming through our new Screen Innovation Fund, making it one of the most significant screen investments a Tasmanian Government has ever made.

Sally Caplan, Head of Content at Screen Australia said: Vicki Madden has carved out her own niche Tassie Noir. Her new series The Gloaming is appealing because it's a compelling crime drama centred on a complex and flawed female police officer set amongst striking Tasmanian landscapes which bring their own uniquely Australian identity to the series.

Madden has a proven record with The Kettering Incident of creating engaging Australian content that resonates with local audiences while also delivering commercial success with international sales. I'm excited by her commitment to and development of this genre and look forward to seeing this talented cast bring this mystery to life.

Stan Original Series The Gloaming continues to build on the fast growing slate of Stan Originals' award-winning, fresh and diverse dramas and comedies including Bloom starring Jacki Weaver, Phoebe Tonkin and Bryan Brown; Logie winner Romper Stomper; AACTA Award-winning and Logie Award-nominated drama series Wolf Creek; AACTA Award-winning and Logie Award-nominated comedy series No Activity; the US version No Activity, in association with Funny Or Die, Jungle and Gary Sanchez Productions; stand-up comedy special One Night Stan; Matt Okine-created comedy series The Other Guy, which starts production on season 2 this month; and Stan Original film The Second.

The Gloaming is a Two Jons production for Stan & ABC Studios International. Principal production investment from Screen Tasmania and Screen Australia in association with Film Victoria. Financed with support from Stan.
