Interrogation on Prime

Prime Television’s first local drama, Interrogation commenced production this week with Whale Rider maker, South Pacific Pictures. The 13-part crime drama series will star some of New Zealand’s most respected talent.

Interrogation (13x60') is a gritty police drama that will explore the emotional impact crime has on its victims and on the police themselves.

Core cast will include Luanne Gordon as Detective Sergeant Angela Darley; Scott Wills as Detective Constable Terry Skinner; Jay Bunyan as Police Constable Dean Salmon; Miriama McDowell as Police Constable Awhina James; John Leigh as Watchhouse Sergeant Phil Worth; Brian Sagala as Public Counter Sergeant Arthur Teleafava; and Peter Elliott as Detective Senior Sergeant Hamish Boyd.

The crime stories of Interrogation will bring an array of new kiwi faces to the screen every week complementing the main cast.

Prime Television’s Programming Manager, Andrew Shaw said, “We are proud to be associated with some of the country’s finest writers, a great cast and New Zealand's pre-eminent drama producers, South Pacific Pictures. Interrogation is another bold step in the development of Prime Television as a New Zealand network.”

Interrogation is a NZ On Air funded project and will air on Prime in September this year.
