A CLASSY SPY THRILLER SET IN THE ENIGMATIC US-AUSTRALIA JOINT DEFENCE FACILITY
In the hot Australian desert near Alice Springs, a team of talented Australian and American intelligence analysts work together to ensure global stability in one of the world’s most important and secretive joint intelligence facilities – Pine Gap. The relationship between the Australians and Americans isn’t always rosy, and beneath the surface bubbles a clash of personalities, cultures and politics that may have grave consequences as the US and China grapple for power, with Australia caught in the middle.
On the Operations Floor, A-Crew’s Mission Director and all-American Gus Thompson (Parker Sawyers), is desperate to emerge from his dead brother’s shadow and return home to earn his father’s respect, but his career aspirations have been stymied by his American seniors. Gus’ career frustrations are made a little easier by a friendly, if a little flirty, rapport with Jasmina Delic (Tess Haubrich), a talented Australian communications analyst who isn’t afraid to speak her mind.
Meanwhile, American maths genius Moses Dreyfus (Mark Leonard Winter) is becoming increasingly paranoid and isolated the longer he works at Pine Gap, and Australian Deb Vora (Alice Keohavong) is having difficulty reconciling the daily life and death decisions that Pine Gap makes. American analyst Eloise Chambers (Edwina Wren) is quietly frustrated at being passed over for promotions for years, while Australian Simon Penny (Sachin Joab) grapples with money troubles with his family back home.
Created by Greg Haddrick and Felicity Packard, Pine Gap is a Screentime, a Banijay Group company, production for Netflix and ABC.
