Picnic At Hanging Rock is becoming a TV show



Peter Weir’s Picnic At Hanging Rock is a beautifully mysterious film. It was adapted from the 1967 novel of the same name by Joan Lindsay. It is now going to be turned into a six part TV mini-series.

During a rural picnic, a few students and a teacher from an Australian girls’ school vanish without a trace. Their absence frustrates and haunts the people left behind.

I am really not sure about this. The original film was gorgeous and I hope that the TV show goes for a similar look. It could work well as it is an intriguing tale and TV shows just keep getting better and better.

The show is being produced by Fremantle Australia with pay-TV group Foxtel the commissioning broadcaster.

“The 1975 film which was pivotal in establishing the modern Australian film industry. This series, based on the classic novel, will take viewers on a new and in depth journey into this incredibly iconic Australian story,” said Foxtel head of drama, Penny Win.

Picnic at Hanging Rock will premiere as six one hour episodes on Foxtel’s showcase channel in 2017.
