‘Once in a Lifetime’ opportunity to see what goes on behind-the-scenes on the Netflix series, Tidelands

‘Once in a lifetime’ opportunity to see what goes on behind-the-scenes on the Netflix series, Tidelands.

Here’s your chance to observe what goes on behind-the-scenes and spend a day on set on Netflix’s first Australian original TV series, Tidelands, filming now in Brisbane with Hoodlum Entertainment, and supported by the Queensland Government through Screen Queensland (SQ).

The series stars Charlotte Best and Elsa Pataky and will be released globally on Netflix later this year.

Tidelands follows Cal McTeer, a young woman who returns home to the small fishing village of Orphelin Bay after ten years in juvenile detention. But her hometown is shrouded in mysteries, the greatest of which is the commune of outcasts who live in a hidden pocket of the bay: the Tidelanders.
