Daniel Monaghan, SVP Content & Programming, Paramount Australia & New Zealand, said: “We are thrilled to be teaming up with Mike Bullen, Gregor Jordan and Beach Road Pictures on this compelling drama, set on the North Shore of our beautiful harbour city and brought to life by a great cast of international and local actors.
“Local productions are a priority for us and I’m certain North Shore will be another gleaming example of great television that can be created right here in our own backyard.”
David Maher and David Taylor said: “North Shore is a gripping crime story as strong on character as it is on plot. We’re excited to be working with the stellar team of Mike Bullen, Gregor Jordan and such a brilliant cast to bring it to life.”
Set on and around Sydney Harbour, North Shore follows the clash of cultures when British and Australian detectives team up to solve a complex murder mystery and uncover a conspiracy with international political consequences.
Currently filming, the series is being produced by Diane Haddon (The Secrets She Keeps S2, The Commons, The Code) and executive produced by Beach Road Pictures’ David Maher and David Taylor, Mike Bullen and Network 10’s Rick Maier.
Produced by Beach Road Pictures, North Shore is financed by Screen Australia in association with Screen NSW. It is also produced in association with, and distributed internationally by, ITV Studios.
