Sundance Channel has announced the debut date for Jane Campion‘s original miniseries starring Elisabeth Moss.
Top of the Lake, a mystery revolving around the disappearance of a pregnant 12-year-old, will debut on the network Monday, March 18 at 9 p.m., when it will air the first two hourlong installments. The seven-part series will continue to air Mondays.
Moss leads an ensemble cast that includes Holly Hunter, Peter Mullan (War Horse), David Wenham (Lord of the Rings) and Lucy Lawless (Spartacus: Vengeance). Garth Davis directed with co-writer Gerard Lee (Sweetie).
Top of the Lake centers on Tui, five months pregnant and missing. According to the synopsis, “Investigative detective Robin Griffin (Moss) must lose herself in order to find the missing girl. During the investigation, she collides with Matt Mitcham (Mullan), Tui’s father, a local drug lord, and G.J (Hunter), a guru at a local women’s camp. As the case unfolds, in a paradise where honest work is hard to find, Robin will find that her limits are tested, sending her on a journey of self-discovery.”
The news comes on the heels of Sundance Channel setting a launch date, April 22, for Ray McKinnon‘s scripted drama Rectify and following the airing of Restless.
