SBS and National Indigenous Television (NITV) are proud to announce the award-winning cast and creative team behind its new original fiction commission True Colours, as filming commences in the breathtakingly beautiful Yeperenye (MacDonnell Ranges), east of Mparntwe (Alice Springs).
Rarriwuy Hick (Redfern Now, Cleverman, Wentworth) spearheads a talented ensemble playing Detective Toni Alma, who is assigned to investigate a suspicious car accident in Perdar Theendar, the Indigenous community she left as a child and has had little to do with over the years.
The beauty of Indigenous art and the sometimes-devious practices in the global art market take Detective Toni Alma on an epic hunt for a killer. Spanning her small Northern Territory community and art galleries across the globe, this is a murder mystery like no other; exploring culture, community and the very human pursuit of identity and belonging in this new four-part crime drama from Bunya Productions, with the support of Screen Australia’s First Nations Department, Screen NSW, Screen Territory and International partner About Premium Content.
The series came from an original concept by Arrernte singer-songwriter Warren H. Williams and co-creator, writer and director Erica Glynn. Warren H. Williams will star alongside Luke Arnold (Never Tear Us Apart, Black Sails), Erroll Shand (Operation Buffalo, Mystery Road, Rake), Emilie de Ravin (Remember Me, Lost, Once Upon A Time), Trisha Morton Thomas (Total Control, Redfern Now, Radiance), Ben Oxenbould (The Kettering Incident, Mr InBetween, Mystery Road) and Miranda Otto (The Unusual Suspects, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, The Lord of the Rings).
