Sundance Channel to Produce Miniseries, Starring Elisabeth Moss

Publish date:

Continued its scripted push, Sundance Channel has signed on to co-produce the miniseries Top of the Lake, starring Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss.

The AMC Networks-owned cabler will produce the seven-part scripted project with BBC Worldwide. Moss stars as a detective searching for a missing pregnant 12-year-old in the remote mountains of New Zealand.

Top of the Lake also stars Holly Hunter, Peter Mullan and David Wenham. Jane Campion wrote the script with Gerard Lee, and Campion will direct alongside Garth Davis.

Sundance Channel has been expanding its presence in the scripted space since the success of last year's Emmy-nominated miniseries, Carlos. Miniseries Appropriate Adult will bow in December, while the network recently picking up drama series, Rectify.
