Golden Globe Success for Top of the Lake

Monday January 13, 2014

Golden Globe Success for UKTV Co-Production Top of the Lake From See-Saw Films

Elisabeth Moss has scooped the award for Best Actress in a Mini-Series or TV Movie for her portrayal of troubled detective Robin Griffin in Jane Campion’s Top Of The Lake.

Top Of The Lake was also nominated for Best TV Mini-Series/Movie.

The powerful and haunting mystery from Australian production powerhouse See-Saw Films, which was filmed on location on the South Island of New Zealand, is co-produced by UKTV in New Zealand and Australia, BBC Two in the UK and Sundance Channel in the US. Starring Elisabeth Moss, David Wenham, Peter Mullan, Thomas M Wright and Holly Hunter, the series attracted strong audiences and critical acclaim when it was aired on SKY last year.

Jon Penn, Managing Director of BBC Worldwide ANZ said: “I am thrilled to offer our congratulations to Elisabeth and the rest of the very talented team behind Top Of The Lake. These are very exciting times for the television industry in Australia and New Zealand. I am very proud that UKTV has been part of this unique series.”

The series is co-written by Jane Campion and Gerard Lee, co-directed by Campion and rising Australian director Garth Davis and is executive produced by Academy Award®-winners Emile Sherman and Iain Canning (The King’s Speech, Shame) of See-Saw Films, and produced by Philippa Campbell (No. 2, Rain) of Escapade Pictures. Screen Australia and Screen NSW provided investment with Fulcrum Media Finance funding the New Zealand Screen Production Incentive Fund (SPIF) and the Australian Producer Offset.
