NEW YORK, February 2, 2023 – Sundance Now and AMC+ released today the trailer, images and screeners for the six-part crime series Black Snow. Starring Travis Fimmel (Vikings, Raised By Wolves), the series debuts with a two-episode premiere on Thursday, February 23 on Sundance Now and AMC+. New episodes of the series will roll out weekly on Thursdays and episodes are now available on Screeners.com.
Part coming-of-age drama and part whodunit, Black Snow follows the mystery of a small-town murder that rocked the Australian South Sea Islander community. In 1995, seventeen-year-old Isabel Baker was murdered. The crime shocked her tight-knit community and left the town devastated. The case was never solved, the killer never found. In 2020, the opening of a time capsule unearths a secret that puts cold-case detective James Cormack (Fimmel) on the trail of the killer.
The series also features newcomers Talijah Blackman-Corowa, Jemmason Power, Molly Fatnowna and Eden Cassady, alongside Brooke Satchwell (Poker Face), Alexander England (C*A*U*G*H*T), Erik Thomson (C*A*U*G*H*T), Kym Gyngell (No Activity), Rob Carlton (Bali 2002), Jimi Bani (Mabo), Daniela Farinacci (Total Control) and Lucy Bell (The Secrets She Keeps), along with the screen debut of Australian music sensation Ziggy Ramo.
Black Snow is produced by Goalpost Pictures, created by Lucas Taylor (Harrow), writing alongside Boyd Quakawoot (Black Comedy) and Beatrix Christian (Jindabyne). Directed by Sian Davies (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), as well as Lois Randall and Kaylene Butler.
