Set in the secretive world of intelligence, PINE GAP exposes the stress inflicted on nations and individuals when ultimate loyalty is under threat, and true motives endanger the famously strong American/Australian joint military alliance through conflicting interests, personal ideals ... and one tragic mistake.

The series will be produced by Lisa Scott and Felicity Packard, and executive produced by Screentime's Bob Campbell, Rory Callaghan and Greg Haddrick, and the ABC's Sally Riley and Kym Goldsworthy.

Executive Chairman of Screentime Bob Campbell said "Screentime is delighted that Netflix and the ABC have come together to commission this production that has been in development by the Screentime drama team for a number of years."

Creator, executive producer, writer and showrunner Greg Haddrick said: "A compelling work of fiction inspired by modern geo political tensions, we are delighted to be working with Netflix and the ABC to produce an original concept for a worldwide audience."

"Greg Haddrick is a magnificent voice in television in Australia and around the world," said Elizabeth Bradley, Netflix Vice President of Content. "We can't wait for Greg to bring PINE GAP'S story of secrecy and deceit to Netflix members around the world."

The ABC's Director of Television David Anderson said: "PINE GAP is shrouded in intrigue for many Australians. It's the perfect anchor, and a timely subject, for an Australian drama that can resonate both locally and with a global audience. This partnership enables a high-end Australian drama to be produced for all Australians, and for locally produced content to be delivered to an international audience. We look forward to working with all our partners on this new venture."

South Australia's Minister for the Arts, Jack Snelling said: "Having an original series in production from global streaming giant NETFLIX in South Australia is testament to the strength of the screen sector here. PINE GAP brings with it a multi-million dollar investment in the State and significant job and career opportunities for our world-class crews, with nearly 100 local crew joining this production.
