SundanceTV has announced premiere dates for upcoming fall series Unspeakable, Top of the Lake: China Girl, and Liar.

A co-production between Canadian network CBC and SundanceTV, Unspeakable is an eight-hour miniseries that chronicles the emergence of HIV and Hepatitis C in Canada in the early 1980s and the aftermath that exposure to tainted blood caused thousands of people. Based on Bad Blood by Vic Parsons and The Gift of Death by Andre Picard, Unspeakable comes from Robert C. Cooper (Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency) and should premiere in early 2018.

Top of the Lake: China Girl is a sequel limited series to acclaimed 2013 series Top of the Lake. From Jane Campion, it follows Detective Griffin (Elisabeth Moss) as her attempts at rebuilding her life upon returning to Sydney get disrupted when the body of an Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach. Battling personal demons along the way, Detective Griffin’s journey for answers to this latest mystery takes her to the darkest recesses of the city she calls home and forces her to reconsider everything she once knew.

In addition to Moss, Top of the Lake: China Girl, which will air as a three-night event Monday, September 10th – Tuesday, September 12th, stars Nicole Kidman (Big Little Lies), Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), and Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures).

Coming Wednesday, September 27th at 10:00 is Liar, a six-part series from Henry and Jack Williams (The Missing). The series follows bright teacher Laura (Joanne Froggatt) and renowned surgeon Andrew (Ioan Gruffudd) as the seemingly innocent date they share results in volatile accusations that will change their lives forever.

Heading into 2018, SundanceTV’s scripted slate includes Cleverman, Hap and Leonard, Deutchsland 86, and The A Word.
