FIRST LOOK AT NICOLE KIDMAN FROM THE NEW INSTALLMENT OF JANE CAMPION'S CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED "TOP OF THE LAKE"
"TOP OF THE LAKE: CHINA GIRL" is produced by See-Saw Films in association with BBC First in Australia, BBC UKTV in New Zealand, SundanceTV and Hulu in the United States, ARTE in France and BBC Worldwide.
Nicole Kidman will play an Australian mother, Julia, whose story will intersect with Elisabeth Moss ("Mad Men"), reprising her Golden Globe winning role as Detective Robin Griffin.
"Top of the Lake: China Girl" is a crime mystery story that finds Detective Robin Griffin, recently returned to Sydney and trying to rebuild her life. When the body of an Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach, there appears little hope of finding the killer, until Robin realizes that "China Girl" didn't die alone. Robin's search to discover "China Girl's" identity takes her into the city's criminal underbelly and closer than she could have imagined to the secrets of her own heart.
"Top of the Lake: China Girl" will broadcast on SundanceTV in 2017.
