‘The Gloaming’ Preview
“The Gloaming” is an Australian crime thriller that premiered a year ago down under and was acquired by Starz for U.S. distribution. It follows a lonely and troubled policewoman as she dives into the murder of an unidentified young woman.
Emma Booth stars as Molly McGee, the aforementioned policewoman, and Ewen Leslie as Alex O’Connell, a fellow cop that she has not spoken to in 20 years, not since they were dating as teenagers. As they work the case, they find that it has connections to a cold case from years before.
The Starz description reads:
When a woman is found brutally killed, the clues surrounding her death connect to murders both past and present. Political corruption and shady business dealings are soon entwined with sinister crimes and occult practices. At the center of this web are two detectives who share a tragic past. In a harrowing journey to find the truth, their fate is coerced by the ghosts of the unsettled dead that linger in the liminal space between life and death.
The first episode is titled “The Dying of the Light” and its description reads, “When a woman is found brutally murdered, evidence discovered at the scene links the murder to a 20-year-old unsolved crime. Detectives and old flames Molly McGee and Alex O’Connell are brought together after a long absence to solve the crime.”
Episode two is called “Hell’s Black Grammar” and it airs March 28. Its description reads, “Molly discovers a mysterious symbol that ignites her desire to track down Freddie, who grows more erratic as he is haunted by a group of apparitions manipulating him for their own dark purposes. Gareth McAvaney and the powerful cabal, The Star of the Forest Church, are funding Councillor Jacinta Clunes’ election campaign in return for her influencing the outcome of a lucrative building tender.”
And episode three, called “Casting the Bones” and airing on April 4, promises, “Another murder with similar overtones to the Moxley murder and a possible sighting of Freddie Hopkins’s ute give the investigators a stronger sense they are on the right track but when they pay a visit to his house, they find he has disappeared. However, what they do find is evidence linked to Jenny McGinty’s murder – a backpack missing from the crime scene of 20 years earlier.”
“The Gloaming” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Starz.
