Australian owned streaming platform Stan has revealed a teaser for its upcoming eight-part original series Eden.
Featuring a young and diverse cast, Eden was shot in and around the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales and is led by Australian up-and-comers BeBe Bettencourt (The Dry) and Sophie Wilde (Bird), alongside stars Keiynan Lonsdale (The Flash), Cody Fern (American Horror Story), TV Week Gold Logie Award-winner Samuel Johnson (Molly) and Christopher James Baker (True Detective).
The mystery of Eden unfolds in an idyllic coastal town, where the disappearance of a young woman triggers a devastating chain of events which lays bare the dark and hidden heart of the community. Long buried secrets are dragged into the open as lives and deeds intersect over one fractured summer and its aftermath.
This complex, multi-generational tale also stars Australian favourites Rachael Blake (Cleverman), Leeanna Walsman (Penguin Bloom), Simon Lyndon (Mystery Road) and Maggie Kirkpatrick (Sando, The Letdown).
An exploration of human relationships through the lens of sex and desire, Eden boasts an all female writing team, led by head writer Vanessa Gazy (Highway), alongside Jess Brittain (Clique), Anya Beyersdorf (Shakespeare Now), Clare Sladden (Freudian Slip) and Penelope Chai (Other People’s Problems).
Created in collaboration by Every Cloud Productions’ Fiona Eagger and Deb Cox, and the creator of the UK cult hit Skins, Balloon Entertainment’s Bryan Elsley, the series is produced by Fiona McConaghy (Stan Original Series The Gloaming) and directed by John Curran (Stan Original Series Bloom), Mirrah Foulkes (Judy & Punch) and Peter Andrikidis (Janet King). All eight episodes of the series are shot by award-winning cinematographer Geoffrey Hall (Stan Original Series Bloom).
The Stan Original Series Eden is produced by Every Cloud Productions and Balloon Entertainment.
