Stan, Australia’s unrivalled home of original productions, today released the trailer for the six-part Stan Original Series Black Snow, which will premiere on New Year’s Day, with all episodes at once and only on Stan.
It’s 1994 in Ashford, North Queensland, and a group of high school students are working on a time capsule. One week before the capsule is buried, Isabel Baker (Talijah Blackman-Corowa) is murdered. The crime shocks the small town and devastates Isabel’s Australian South Sea Islander community. The case is never solved, the killer never found.
Twenty-five years later, opening the time capsule unearths a letter from Isabel that sheds new light on her unsolved murder. The investigation is reopened and Detective Sergeant James Cormack (Travis Fimmel), from the State Cold Case Unit, arrives in Ashford to begin the search for Isabel’s killer.
A captivating six-part, one-hour mystery-drama series set in a small town in North Queensland with deep ties to the Australian South Sea Islander community, Black Snow combines the character-driven storytelling of a coming-of-age drama with the gripping mystery of a classic whodunit.
