Bernie Van Tiel stars in 'The Mother Load'

New web series 'The Mother Load' is now available to view online. Starring SJM's Bernie Van Tiel as Kali Diaz, it's six & a half minutes that has never been so wild!

A new Australian drama – the first produced in this country by FX - has released it's new trailer.

The six-parter plunges viewers into the world of professional hitman Ray Shoesmith – a character who may already be familiar to some, as he was front and centre of the 2006 film 'The Magician'.

Megan Drury stuns in 'Fighting Season'

Megan Drury currently plays Cpt. Phoebe Colville on Foxtel's mini-series 'Fighting Season'.

The six-part event drama is a compelling mystery regarding a possible cover-up where the lines between killer and family man, between hero and victim, between truth and imagination, are constantly shifting.

'Fighting Season', from production company Goalpost Pictures (Cleverman, The Sapphires) and writer Blake Ayshford (Barracuda, Devil’s Playground) is the story about the invisible men and women who fight for our country, what they bring home and what of themselves they leave behind, and the secrets that must remain hidden.

Airs Sundays on Foxtel's Showcase Channel.

Watch the trailer below.
