Channel 9 has announced production on a new drama series Hyde and Seek, as the network continues to invest in local content in the hope of reinventing its line-up.

The series features an impressive cast including Matt Nable (Underbelly: Badness, Gallipoli), Deborra-lee Furness (Correlli, Jindabyne), Mandy McElhinney (House of Hancock, Love Child), Emma Hamilton (The Tudors, Mary: The Making of a Princess) and Zoe Ventoura (Packed to the Rafters)

When his best mate is killed in a seemingly random attack, Detective Gary Hyde (Matt Nable) vows to bring the killers to justice. Together with his new partner Claire McKenzie (Emma Hamilton), Gary uncovers a criminal underbelly that will threaten his life, endanger his young family and cause him to question everything he believes in.  In a world where crime has no borders and everyone has something to hide, Gary and Claire might catch the criminals but will they lose their loved ones in the process?

Joining the cast are Tai Hara (Home and Away), Claire Lovering (San Andreas), Andrew McFarlane (Devil’s Playground, Love Child), Aaron Fa’aoso (East West 101) and Stephanie Panozzo.

Hyde & Seek is being made for the Nine Network by Matchbox Pictures and distributed by NBCU. Executive producers are Jo Rooney and Andy Ryan from the Nine Network and Debbie Lee (Glitch, Family Law), with producer Stephen Corvini (Schapelle, Devil’s Dust) and creators/writers Gavin Strawhan (Step Dave, Nothing Trivial) and Rachel Lang (Outrageous Fortune, Blue Rose).

The directors are Peter Andrikidis (Catching Milat, Fat Tony & Co., Bikie Wars), David Caesar (Underbelly: Razor, Power Games, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries) and Daniel Nettheim (Doctor Who, Line of Duty, Ripper Street, Rush).
