10’s new Australian contemporary mystery series My Life Is Murder commences filming in Melbourne today, Monday February 11.
Leading the cast is Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess, Spartacus, The Code) as Alexa Crowe, a compelling, charismatic and complex homicide detective.
Fearless and unapologetic, Alexa’s unique insights into the darker quirks of human nature allow her to prod, provoke and push every felon’s right and wrong buttons as she unravels the truth behind the most baffling and bizarre crimes.
Joining Lawless and rounding out the power trio behind the My Life Is Murder throne, are Bernard Curry (Home and Away, Wentworth) and newcomer and NIDA graduate Ebony Vagulans.
Network 10’s head of drama Rick Maier said: “A star vehicle for Lucy, the best actors in the country guesting each week and Bernie and Ebony completing the dream cast for this dream project. Should be a ton of fun.”
CJZ’s head of drama development Claire Tonkin said: “What a joy to be working with Lucy, Bernard and Ebony, a spectacular guest cast and a creative team of this calibre as we bring these characters and stories to life.”
My Life Is Murder is a CJZ production for Network 10.
Principle production investment from Network 10 in association with Screen Australia. Financed with support from Film Victoria.
International distribution will be handled by DCD Rights.
