New Indigenous Supernatural series TRICKSER arrives on NITV and SBS On Demand

NITV and SBS On Demand will tonight premiere a new Canadian supernatural drama series, Trickster.

Trickster is based on the bestselling novel Son Of A Trickster by Eden Robinson, and has roots in Indigenous gothic mythology.

Starring newcomer Joel Oulette, this unique series is created by award-winning filmmaker Michelle Latimer (RISE, Nuuca) and Tony Elliott (Orphan Black).

Oulette plays Jared, an Indigenous teen struggling to keep his dysfunctional family above water, holding down an after school job and selling ecstasy to support his partying mom, Maggie (Crystle Lightning), who self-medicates an undiagnosed mental illness, and his unemployable dad, Phil (Craig Lauzon) and his new girlfriend.

When Jared starts seeing strange things talking ravens, doppelgängers, and skin monsters, his already chaotic life is turned upside down. Additional cast includes Kalani Queypo (Jamestown), Anna Lambe (The Grizzlies), Joel Thomas Hynes (Little Dog), and Gail Maurice (Cardinal).

Trickster will begin airing on NITV, weekly at 8.30pm from Tuesday, 27 October.

New episodes will be available to stream each week on SBS On Demand
