Top Of The Lake Elisabeth Moss

So, are you finished with "House of Cards"? Are you eager for another auteur driven, accomplished drama featuring a first rate cast? Well, in just a few weeks you'll be able sink your teeth into Jane Campion's six-part "Top of the Lake" led by "Mad Men" star Elisabeth Moss, and the first trailer is here to give you a great look at the unique setting for this miniseries.

Co-starring David Wenham, Lucy Lawless, Robyn Malcolm and Jay Ryan, the story follows detective Robin Griffin who investigates the disappearance of the 12-year-old, five-months-pregnant daughter of a local drug lord in remote, mountainous New Zealand. During the investigation, she collides with Matt Mitcham (Mullan), the missing girl’s father and local drug lord, and GJ (Hunter), a guru at a local women’s camp. But that's just the tip of the multiple storylines woven throughout the show.

Earlier this month at the Berlin International Film Festival, our own Jessica Kiang managed to catch the entire series in one sitting and called it a "quality event TV, and we’re dying for everyone to see it." She praised the "outstanding photography and sense of mood, genuine suspense, a surprising amount of humor and a clutch of performances so terrific they are riveting to watch" and needless to say, this should be high on your watch list for this spring.

Take a look at the U.K. trailer below. "Top of the Lake" will debut on Sundance Selects, Monday, March 18th at 9 p.m.
