"Cleverman" on SundanceTV is an epic genre drama featuring a superb ensemble cast led by Scottish actor Iain Glen ("Game of Thrones"), Golden Globe nominee Frances O'Connor ("The Missing"), Deborah Mailman ("The Sapphires"), Hunter Page-Lochard ("The Sapphires"), Rob Collins ("The Lion King") and Stef Dawson ("The Hunger Games").

Set in the near future, "Cleverman" is a smart, sexy and startlingly original drama that sees a group of non-humans battling for survival in a world where humans feel increasingly inferior to them, and want to silence, exploit and kill them. Central to the drama is the story of two estranged Indigenous brothers who are forced together to fight for their own survival. Otherworldly creatures also emerge into this fragile and dangerous place, in this action-packed new series.

Season 2

The series picks up hours after the explosive conclusion of season one. In the wake of the Containment Authority's attack on the zone, Koen sets out to harness his powers with the dream of bringing all cultures together. His brother Waruu shares the same vision, yet now allied with Slade, his methods are far more dubious. Outside the city limits, a new threat lurks that will challenge both brothers' pursuits.
With production set in Sydney, "Cleverman" is produced by Goalpost Pictures Australia and New Zealand's Pukeko Pictures for ABC TV Australia in co-production with SundanceTV and Red Arrow International, with the assistance of Screen Australia, Screen NSW and the New Zealand Screen Production Grant. Red Arrow International is distributing the drama worldwide.

Oscar-winning, world-renowned Weta Workshop ("Lord of the Rings" trilogy, "The Hobbit" trilogy, "King Kong," "Avatar," "The Amazing Spider-Man 3," "Godzilla"), through their association with Pukeko Pictures, together with Jacob Nash (Bangarra Dance Company) are providing the creature design. Park Road Post Production ("The Hobbit" films) is providing picture, visual effects and sound post production services.

Wayne Blair, director of the Australian box office hit "The Sapphires" and upcoming film "Septembers of Shiraz," is lead director, with acclaimed director, writer, actress and performer Leah Purcell also directing.
