The return of Jane Campion’s acclaimed series Top Of The Lake will be released as a full series on BBC iPlayer. All six episodes of the drama will be available to download or stream on BBC iPlayer from July 27th immediately after it premieres on BBC Two.
Top Of The Lake: China Girl is a crime mystery story that finds Detective Robin Griffin recently returned to Sydney and trying to rebuild her life. When the body of an Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach, there appears little hope of finding the killer, until Robin discovers ‘China Girl’ didn’t die alone.
“It is imperative that we continue to explore and offer a range of ways to watch our dramas and I believe BBC Two and Jane Campion’s Top Of The Lake: China Girl is the perfect offering as the next full series to premiere on BBC iPlayer. It’s a captivating watch, a six-part movie which takes you into a murky world as Robin follows unexpected leads to solve a darkly disturbing case. I’m thrilled we are able to give the viewers the opportunity to get engrossed into all six episodes at once on BBC iPlayer, or watch week by week on BBC Two.”
“It’s great that the BBC are offering viewers the chance to watch Top Of The Lake: China Girl in one go,” declared Jamie Laurenson, Executive Producer for See-Saw Films. “We think the series has all the compulsive qualities that will make watching more than one episode at a time irresistible.”
The first episode Top Of The Lake: China Girl will broadcast on BBC Two from Thursday July 27th, 9pm and the full series will be available on BBC iPlayer from 10pm.
