Signed on as Composer for My Life is Murder
Former Xena star Lucy Lawless will star in a new TEN crime drama, My Life is Murder.
The series to be produced by CJZ will feature Lawless as investigator Alexa Crowe, who cannot help fighting the good fight – whether it is solving murders or combatting the small frustrations of everyday life. Fearless and unapologetic, Alexa’s unique skills and insights into the darker quirks of human nature, allows her to provoke, comfort and push the right buttons as she unravels the truth behind the most baffling of crimes.
Lawless has more recently featured in Ash vs Evil Dead, Salem, Agents of SHIELD and ABC’s The Code.
TEN Head of Drama, Rick Maier, said: “Crimes that confound your average detective are more than an irritant for Alexa Crowe. She is not your average cop. Brilliant, insightful, and completely without filter, Alexa is that rare breed of television hero: She doesn’t give a damn how she solves the crime or who she offends in the process, as long as she gets it done.
The 10 part series will be written by Jane Allen, Peter Gawler and Claire Tonkin, shooting in Melbourne at the end of 2018.
My Life Is Murder is a CJZ production for Network Ten. Principal production investment from Network Ten in association with Screen Australia. Financed with support from Film Victoria. International distribution will be handled by DCD Rights.
Signed on as composer for Australian feature film Locusts
Written and produced by Angus Watts, and directed by Heath Davis, Locusts is set in a fictional, remote mining town where desperation, drugs and unemployment are rife. Partly inspired by Angus Watts’ experiences growing up in a drought stricken NSW country town, and using Broken Hill as a location, the film has been described as a kind of “modern noir Western”.
Ben Geurens and Nathaniel Dean play estranged brothers Ryan and Tyson Black who are reluctantly reunited in their remote hometown at their father’s funeral. When Ryan crosses paths with a gang of thugs from their father’s shady past, the brothers become entangled in a deadly extortion racket that exposes the dark underbelly of the sleepy town.
“The title is a metaphor for the human propensity to consume the world around us without fear of consequences,” says Watts.
The film co-stars Jessica McNamee, Steve Le Marquand, Justin Rosniak, Andy McPhee, Damian Hill and Alan Dukes.
