Amazon Picks Up Aussie Crime Drama ‘Troppo’ For Freevee

Amazon is picking up the Australian television crime drama ‘Troppo’ for their IMDb TV streaming app, soon to be rebranded as Freevee. The show is set to be released on May 27th.
Amazon Studios said in a press release, “From AGC Television, Troppo is the story of Ted Conkaffey, played by Thomas Jane (The Expanse, The Vanished), an ex-cop falsely accused of committing a disturbing crime, who has escaped to hide away in the tropics of Far North Queensland. As he tries to avoid discovery, he’s drawn into investigating a wild murder and a missing person, alongside a complicated woman named Amanda Pharrell (played by Nicole Chamoun), with dark secrets of her own.”
They continued, “Adapted for television by Yolanda Ramke, Troppo is based on the book Crimson Lake, the first novel in a gripping contemporary crime series set in Queensland, Australia, written by #1 New York Times best-selling author Candice Fox.”
Fox’s first novel ‘Hades’ won the 2014 Ned Kelly Award for Best First Novel.
