The stellar ensemble cast includes Holly Hunter (who won the Best Actress Oscar starring in Campion's 1993 Best Picture nominee "The Piano"), Peter Mullan ("Tyrannosaur") and David Wenham ("Lord of the Rings").

The original series debuted earlier this year at the Sundance and Berlinale film festivals. It is executive produced and co-written by Campion (our TOH! interview is here), who also directed the premiere episode.
