Tasmanian mystery drama THE TAILINGS finally gets its free-to-air premiere tonight


After launching earlier this year at SBS On Demand, the Tasmanian mystery drama THE TAILINGS will tonight arrive on free-to-air for the first time on SBS Viceland.

The Tailings follows the events that take place after the death of teenage Jas’s father.

The tight-knit community are quick to deem the death as an accident, spiralling Jas to undertake her own investigation. This coincides with the arrival of her new schoolteacher Ruby, who comes carrying the burden of her own past trauma. The two slowly develop a mutual trust and as secrets are exposed, the truth becomes impossible to ignore.

The poignant performances by emerging stars Tegan Stimson (Jas) and Mabel Li
(Ruby) are an intimate portrayal of the human experience with grief, guilt and loss from the diverse perspective of those living on the margins both socially and geographically.

The ensemble cast is led by Kris McQuade (Rosehaven, Wentworth), playing Jas’s grandmother who is grappling with supporting her granddaughter while processing her own loss. She is joined by Victoria Haralabidou (Deep Water), Nic English
(Reckoning) and an array of local Tasmanian talent including Shaun Martindale, Sara Cooper, John Xintavelonis, Harry Prior, Harry Radbone, Michael Earnshaw, Tai Nguyen, and Jane Hamilton Foster.

The Tailings premieres tonight, Monday, 7 June at 9.15pm on SBS VICELAND.

The full season is available to stream now at SBS On Demand
