Mystery Road: Origin
Matt Roush says...
The award-winning Australian crime drama jumps back to 1999 to provide the origin story of Aboriginal detective Jay Swan in a six-part series (two episodes a week) created by and starring Indigenous talent. Mark Coles Smith takes over the role previously played over two seasons by Aaron Pedersen, when the young constable starts his career in the same Outback town where he grew up. As he reconnects with his estranged family, Jay crosses paths with a gang of robbers who may be associated with the Sons of the Soil, known for drug dealing and white supremacy.
