Mystery Road is a spin-off from Ivan Sen’s internationally acclaimed and award-winning feature films Mystery Road and Goldstone.

It is being directed by top filmmaker Rachel Perkins, whose feature film Jasper Jones was in cinemas earlier this year.

Filming will commence in the East Kimberley next month.

The series will tell the story of Detective Jay Swan (Pederson), who is assigned to investigate the mysterious disappearance of two young farm hands on an outback cattle station.

One is a local Indigenous footy hero and the other a backpacker.

The series is set to premiere on the ABC next year.
