Stan Australia

Travis Fimmel (“Vikings”) will lead the cast of the upcoming Stan Original Series ”Black Snow”, which is currently in production in North Queensland, the network announced today.

A gripping six-part, one-hour mystery-drama series set in a small town in North Queensland with deep ties to the Australian South Sea Islander community, Black Snow also features newcomers Talijah Blackman-Corowa, Jemmason Power and Molly Fatnowna, alongside Brooke Satchwell (Mr Inbetween), Alexander England (Alien: Covenant), Erik Thomson (Packed to the Rafters), Kym Gyngell (Wakefield) and Rob Carlton (Total Control). The series will also feature the screen debut of Australian music sensation Ziggy Ramo.

The series, produced by Goalpost Television, is created by Lucas Taylor (Harrow), writing alongside Boyd Quakawoot (Black Comedy) and Beatrix Christian (Jindabyne). Directed by Sian Davies (Stan Original Series The Gloaming) and Matthew Saville (Please Like Me) and shot by Murray Lui (Top End Wedding), the series is produced by Goalpost’s Rosemary Blight (The Invisible Man), alongside Lois Randall and Kaylene Butler.

The Stan Original Series Black Snow combines the character-driven storytelling of a coming-of-age drama with the gripping mystery of a classic whodunit to create a unique series that is deeply rooted in its North Queensland setting. In 1995, seventeen-year-old Isabel Baker was murdered. The crime shocked the small town of Ashford and devastated Isabel’s Australian South Sea Islander community. The case was never solved, the killer never found. But in 2020, the opening of a time capsule unearths a secret that puts cold-case Detective James Cormack (Travis Fimmel) on the trail of the killer.

Black Snow acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands on which the series is being produced, including the Ngaro Gia and Juru people of the Birra Gubba Nation, and the Australian South Sea Islander community and their significant place in Queensland’s history.
