ABC Commercial has sold the Logie-nominated Australian crime investigation series Exposed: The Case of Keli Lane (3 x 60 mins) to Discovery in the UK. The three-year license agreement gives exclusive rights in the region premiering on Discovery owned Really later this year.
In the series multi award-winning journalist Caro Meldrum-Hanna investigates one of Australia’s most notorious cases: the disappearance of two-day old baby Tegan Lane and the conviction of her mother Keli Lane for her murder. Lane breaks her silence for the first time, speaking exclusive to Meldrum-Hanna from prison.
“Exposed: The Case of Keli Lane is an excellent example of the high-quality, original factual production that sits within our robust portfolio of award-winning television content,” said Jessica Ellis, head of ABC content sales and distribution. “We’re thrilled to be working with Discovery to bring this ground-breaking Australian series to British and Irish audiences.”
“The case of Keli Lane is like no other,” said Meldrum-Hanna. “How can a two-day old baby disappear without a trace, in broad daylight in sunny Sydney, from a busy public hospital, never to be seen again? No witnesses, no murder weapon, no forensic evidence, no body. A litany of lies and multiple secret pregnancies. Her mother is in jail for murder, claiming innocence. She’s finally agreed to talk. But where does the truth lie?”
