Netflix’s drama tells the fictional story of the mistrust and betrayals triggered as a new power encroaches on the old world order.

“Having an original series in production from global streaming giant Netflix in South Australia is testament to the strength of the screen sector here,” said Jack Snelling, South Australia’s minister for the arts, when Pine Gap was first announced.

“Pine Gap brings with it a multi-million dollar investment in the state and significant job and career opportunities for our world-class crews, with nearly a hundred local crew joining this production.”

South Australia recently expanded its Post-Production, Digital and Visual Effects rebate, which has led to industry giant Technicolor confirming plans to open a AU$26m visual effects studio in Adelaide. The company was involved with five of this year’s Best Picture nominees, including The Shape of Water, Darkest Hour and The Post.
