Following on from three highly praised telemovies, Jack Irish is set to return in an expanded six-part series on February 11th that will lead the charge on ABC TV’s season of Aussie drama.
The all-star cast is led by Emmy Award-winner Guy Pearce and includes Jack Irish regulars Marta Dusseldorp, Aaron Pedersen, Roy Billing, Shane Jacobson and Deborah Mailman, with Claudia Karvan, Marcus Graham and Brooke Satchwell.
In this thrilling series, Jack is engaged to find a missing person, Wayne Dilthey only to be later framed for his murder. An alibi turns up out of the blue – an alluring but unnerving sculptor by the name of Sarah Longmore who is searching for her missing sister Tina. And if all this isn’t weird enough, the only witness to Dilthey’s murder has taken off with Jack’s beloved Studebaker.
Jack is quickly caught up in a complex web of powerful vested interests that stretches from his home town turf of Fitzroy to a remote village in Mindanao, Philippines, where his on-again-off-again girlfriend Linda Hillier becomes central to resolving the conspiracy.
The trailer for the new series is below.
Jack Irish returns to the ABC on Thursday, February 11th at 8pm.
