The Australian supernatural series begins airing Sept. 30 on the streamer.

BBC Worldwide North America has sold Australian drama The Kettering Incident, starring Elizabeth Debicki, to Amazon Prime, which will premiere the series on its streaming service on Sept. 30.

The eight-part supernatural mystery was co-created by Tasmanian writer Vicki Madden and producer Vincent Sheehan for pay-TV giant Foxtel. It's been one of Foxtel’s highest-rated original dramas this year.

Shot entirely in Tasmania, the series tells the story of Anna Macy (Debicki), a doctor who left the town of Kettering when she was 14, shortly after her best friend disappeared. Anna returns 15 years later to a town struggling to survive — torn apart by clashes between environmentalists and loggers. Anna’s reappearance causes a stir. Theories and rumors persist about what really happened to the girls that night long ago — ideas from Anna killing her best friend to alien abduction. Drawn to discover what really happened, Anna uncovers secrets buried deep in her mind and the heart of Kettering and its people.

The Kettering Incident is produced by Porchlight Films in association with Sweet Potato Films, with Vincent Sheehan, Vicki Madden and Andrew Walker as producers. Madden is also showrunner, and her fellow writers are Andrew Knight, Cate Shortland and Louise Fox. Rowan Woods and Tony Krawitz direct. The executive producers are Foxtel head of drama Penny Win, Liz Watts and Anita Sheehan.
