‘Top of the Lake’ Season 2: New Image Reveals Nicole Kidman in the Atmospheric Thriller

The first season of Top of the Lake aired in the U.S. in March of 2013, so the wait for Season 2 has been a long one. Despite all of the many, many hours of TV I have watched (and forgotten) since then, Top of the Lake remains clearly emblazoned in my mind. It was a strange, beautiful, dark, and deeply atmospheric series that explored the nuances of a remote and rural area of New Zealand, and uncovers a crime ring that has poisoned the whole area with its evil acts. The series focuses on a Sydney detective, Robin Griffith (Elisabeth Moss), who in the first season returned to her home in New Zealand and not only discovered the aforementioned criminal activities and their source, but also learned some disturbing new facts about her own life (and, most pointedly, who she was related to and how). In the new season, titled "China Girl," Robin has returned to Sydney and is trying to rebuild her life when a young Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach, and Robin again must work to find her killer.

Top of the Lake Season Two Will Throw Another Nicole Kidman on the Barbie

  Last week, Nicole Kidman was reportedly joining the upcoming second season of Top of the Lake . Then she wasn't . But now, apparently, she is back in again, which means the project officially has an Australian star to go along with its new Australian location. (The casting of American Elisabeth Moss in the lead role led to behind-the-scenes drama for the show's first go-round.) Director Jane Campion confirmed the Kidman news in an interview with Premiere , saying only, "Nicole Kidman will [be] in season two ...I am working on scripts and I have a role for her." (Never one for undue sentiment, Campion.) The nature and size of that role is unknown, though Kidman did hint that she enjoys playing "odd people, who live odd lives." Can she top "leader of a radical-feminist separatist commune" ?   Read More...   //www.vulture.com/2015/09/nicole-kidman-top-of-the-lake-season-2.html

Nicole Kidman Joining ‘Top of the Lake’ Season 2

Top of the Lake’s first season brought together a lot of great talent, including Elisabeth Moss (confirmed to return for Season 2) Peter Mullan, and Holly Hunter, and many have speculated who might be the next to join Jane Campion’s haunting New Zealand series for Season 2. But as rich and fantastic as the first season was, I don’t know that anyone could have guessed that it might snag such a high profile addition as Nicole Kidman. According to the Daily Mail, Kidman will be appearing in a role written specifically for her by Campion, but the actress would not divulge any other details. She did say, however, that she "finds herself drawn to playing ‘odd people, who live odd lives,’" which sums up Top of the Lake. She went on to say, READ MORE...

Elisabeth Moss Is Onboard for Top of the Lake Season Two

  Remember that limited-run TV series that saw a talented filmmaker reconstitute our image of a beloved star by casting them in the story of a detective investigating a mysterious string of violence against young women, an investigation that ended up indicting not just a criminal but also the entire social and psychological landscape of a community? That's right: 2013's Top of the Lake ! Australia's IF has the scoop that, unlike other shows we could mention , TOTL will keep its star in its second season: Elisabeth Moss's Robin Griffin returns as the action moves to Sydney for a mystery TBA. (Original writers Jane Campion and Gerald Lee are returning as well, and just like season one, Campion will share half the directing duties.) Filming starts in December the series should air sometime in 2016 which means there's plenty of time to find Australia's most depressed  dive-bar singer .   Read More...   //www.vulture.com/2015/07/moss-is-onboard-for-top-of-the-lake-season-two.html

All Hail The Return Of The Mini-Series

Every year or so, the television industry laments the impending death of a particular television format. Before Modern Family came along in 2009, they were busy reading sitcoms their last rites. Before that it was network dramas that were on the chopping block, but then the 2004 season produced Lost, Grey’s Anatomy and Desperate Housewives, seemingly saving us all from a fresh glut of reality programming. As you might have guessed, these "the sky is falling!" prognostications tend to be gross exaggerations born out of particular genres falling into ruts. However, the mini-series was good and properly dead. So dead in fact, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences decided to eliminate the supporting actor and actress in a television movie or mini-series categories all together in 2012, saving time in the Emmy broadcast and acknowledging that television’s grand mini-series tradition was fading into obscurity. Then History came along with a pair of feuding families and Jesus to pull off a miracle of near Biblical proportions by making the mini-series relevant again. READ MORE...
