UK distributor Cineflix Rights has secured its first drama acquisition after striking a deal to pick up Australian drama Secrets & Lies for the international market.
The series (6×60′), produced by Hoodlum and commissioned by Network Ten, is a crime drama that explores the effects of murder on those touched by the events and reveals the secrets of ordinary suburban life.
Cineflix Rights will also cofinance the series alongside Network Ten, Screen Queensland and Screen Australia.
Filming began in Brisbane this month and it will air on Network Ten later this year.
The distributor is also responsible for sales of dramas produced by its sister production company Cineflix Studios and joint venture Buccaneer Media. Its slate includes BBC America’s original drama Copper.
