FOXTEL continues commitment to local content with new Australian drama THE TWELVE

- ADVERTISEMENT -

As part of Foxtel’s content showcase event this week, the pay-tv/streaming business re-confirmed its commitment to the new Australian drama series, THE TWELVE.

THE TWELVE is gripping courtroom drama that tells the story of 12 ordinary Australians who are selected for jury duty in a murder trial as traumatising as it is controversial, in which a woman stands accused of killing a child. 

Behind the façade of their anonymity, these twelve ordinary people bring with them their own histories.

Lives that are as complex as the trial, full of fractured dreams, shameful secrets, hope, fears, personal trauma and prejudice.  Through the multiple lenses of these jurors, we see the fragility and imbalances of the law, and the chaotic and flawed way we attempt to determine justice in our society.

The writing team for The Twelve features a stellar line-up including Wentworth’s Leah Purcell. 

Brian Walsh, Executive Director of Television, said:

“Foxtel is proud to continue its long-standing commitment to local content with the announcement of this new drama series, The Twelve. 

“The series takes on the crime genre through the lens of jurors. It is a bold and fresh approach to the classic murder mystery story and will boast a big ensemble cast and an equally impressive team of writers and creatives. We look forward to working with Michael Brooks, Hamish Lewis and the team at Warner Bros. International Television in Sydney, and Liz Watts at Spirit Pictures,”

Michael Brooks, Managing Director of Warner Bros. International Television Australia, added:

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Foxtel on The Twelve, which will mark the launch of our domestic drama business. Warner Bros. is committed to telling Australian stories and working with the incredible creative talent we have in this country. Our partnership with Liz Watts at Spirit Pictures is the first of many to come and we are excited to work alongside Brian Walsh and the wonderful team at Foxtel.”

THE TWELVE is a 10 x one-hour crime drama based on the Belgian series of the same name. Executive Producers are Michael Brooks and Hamish Lewis from Warner Bros. International Television Australia, Liz Watts from Spirit Pictures and Brian Walsh for Foxtel.

The Twelve will premiere on Foxtel in 2022
