All3Media International announced it will handle the global distribution for two upcoming Stan original dramas, “Exposure” from Thirdborn and “Critical Incident” from Matchbox Pictures. All3Media International also will be the global partner for the second season of Goalpost Pictures’ “Black Snow.”

Starring Alice Englert ("Beautiful Creatures", "Top of the Lake", "The Serpent") with major investment from Screen Australia, “Exposure” is a six-episode raw psychological thriller from Thirdborn premiering in 2024 as a Stan original series in Australia. Created and written by Lucy Coleman ("Hot Mess") and inspired by her lived experience, the series follows photographer Jacs Gould (Alice Englert), who returns to her hometown after the death of her friend to discover the hidden secrets of their relationship and the truth behind the tragedy. Believing the corrosive actions of a man pushed her friend over the edge, Jacs throws herself out as bait, beginning an investigation that becomes an obsessive, impulsive pursuit. Channeling her actions into sex and the darkroom, Jac’s search for answers becomes a turbulent, unruly quest into the depths of processing present-day grief while reckoning with the past.

Filmed in Blacktown, Granville, Parramatta, and Greenacre, the Stan original series “Critical Incident” is a gritty and raw series depicting life in the Western suburbs of Sydney. This contemporary crime drama delves into the complex world of policing and the consequences on those most vulnerable. While on patrol for a teenage suspect, Senior Constable Zilifcar ‘Zil’ Ahmed (Khanna) pursues Dalia (Boe), and in the chaos and confusion of the pursuit, a bystander is critically injured. Zil’s world comes crashing down when he discovers Dalia is, in fact, not the perpetrator. The immense guilt over the bystander’s horrific injuries, coupled with the pressure of the critical incident investigation and the public scrutiny, creates an unbearable burden for Zil. Encouraged by his brothers in blue, Zil becomes obsessed with pinning something on Dalia.

With production commencing in Queensland, the second season of the Stan original series “Black Snow”, produced by Goalpost Pictures, will see Travis Fimmel reprise his role as Detective Cormack. Director Sian Davies, Executive Producer Rosemary Blight, and Series Creator Lucas Taylor also return to the series, and Helena Brooks joins as Director. "Black Snow" season 2 is produced in association with All3Media International and Sundance Now and with financial support from Screen Queensland, Screen NSW, and The City of Gold Coast. Detective Cormack (Travis Fimmel) tackles two separate cases of missing persons. One is professional, as he investigates the disappearance of Zoe Jacobs - who disappeared from her own 21st birthday party in 2003 - and the other is personal, as Cormack searches desperately for his own younger brother, who went missing when they were children.
