Ten Commissions New Crime Series

Ten Commissions New Crime Series

Network Ten has commissioned Australian contemporary mystery series My Life Is Murder, which will air on Ten and WIN Network in 2019 in association with Screen Australia.

The crime series stars the iconic New Zealander actress Lucy Lawless (pictured above), who plays investigator Alexa Crowe.

Network Ten’s head of drama, Rick Maier, said: “Brilliant, insightful, and completely without filter, Alexa is that rare breed of television hero. She doesn’t give a damn how she solves the crime or who she offends in the process – as long as she gets it done.”

Sally Caplan, Screen Australia’s head of production, said: “This captivating female-led story made My Life Is Murder a highly attractive project for Screen Australia.

“It’s a coup for CJZ and Network Ten to have pop culture legend Lucy Lawless on board to star in her first Australian lead role.”

CJZ’s head of drama development, Claire Tonkin, said: “With a fascinating and deeply irreverent investigator at its heart, developing this crime series has been the most fun you can have while plotting murder (of the fictional variety).

“We are thrilled to partner with Screen Australia and Network Ten, and what an absolute joy to be working with the brilliant Lucy Lawless to bring this fearless character to life.”

The series will be set and shot in Melbourne and commence production at the end of 2018.
