A Closer Production DCD Rights My Life is Murder SBS Broadcasting Australia Screen Australia The Hunting

 

With an all-star cast, The Hunting features Sam Reid as Ray (Lambs Of GodBloomPrime Suspect 1973), Jessica de Gouw as Eliza (UndergroundDraculaArrow), Asher Keddie as Simone (The CryOffspringX-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Richard Roxburgh as Nick (RakeHacksaw RidgeMission: Impossible II).

My Life Is Murder follows the complex, contrary and compelling investigator Alexa Crowe (Lucy Lawless – Xena: Warrior Princess,Ash vs Evil Dead, Top Of The Lake, Spartacus), who can’t help fighting the good fight – whether it’s solving murders or combating the small frustrations of everyday life. In each stand-alone episode, the fearless and unapologetic Alexa uses her unique skills and insights into the darker quirks of human nature to provoke, comfort and push the right buttons as she unravels the truth behind a raft of the most baffling of crimes.

 

As Alexa unmasks the hidden passions and dangerous secrets lurking in the energetic, ever-changing city of Melbourne she is ably assisted by ambitious twenty something Madison Feliciano (Ebony Vagulans – Doctor Doctor, The Letdown), who is not so quietly learning from the best – and her former boss, Detective Inspector Keiran Hussey (Bernard Curry – Wentworth, Faking It, Once Upon A Time), who enlists Alexa on his trickiest cases on the understanding it also means he gets to keep an eye on what she’s up to. And then there’s Alexa’s stubborn cat Captain Thunderbolt – Madison’s nemesis, Keiran’s biggest fan and the one personality Alexa will never quite crack…

 

And at the centre of everything, in all her unrepentant, brilliant, fearless glory, is Alexa Crowe. Ultimately this is a show about a woman who just refuses to give in. Or give up. Or shut up.
