Top of the Lake – which Campion wrote in partnership with Gerard Lee (All Men Are Liars, Sweetie) – focuses on the case of a 12-year-old girl who is discovered standing in a frozen lake, five months pregnant. The investigating detective Robin Griffin is tested when she takes on the mystery and ends up learning more about herself.

The series has been described as “a powerful and haunting story about our search for happiness in a paradise where honest work is hard to find”.

Campion will film Top of the Lake early next year in New Zealand.
