About Premium Content (APC) has closed a key deal with US premium streaming service Hulu for its new scripted series "The Unusual Suspects" (4x60’), an English-language female-led comedy heist drama produced by Aquarius Films’ Angie Fielder and Polly Staniford for SBS Australia and globally distribute by APC.

When a $16 million necklace is taken from self-made business woman Roxanne Waters’ home in an elaborate heist, the ensuing police investigation exposes cracks in Eastern Sydney’s sparkling façade. With the stakes higher than ever, can the masterminds stop themselves from turning on each other, or will they discover a friendship worth more than diamonds? Providing a fresh view into the immigrant experience, "The Unusual Suspects" is a highly entertaining tale of empowerment and a celebration of female friendship and it will have its debut in the US.

Laurent Boissel and Emmanuelle Guilbart, Joint-CEOs and Co-Founders at APC, say: “'The Unusual Suspects' is a fun female-led drama series which has found an ideal home stateside with our partners at Hulu. We are excited to see this comedic caper from the team at Aquarius Films continue to gain momentum and put women’s and immigrants’ narratives at the forefront of a series in a fresh way.”

Angie Fielder and Polly Staniford continued, “We are thrilled that with the support of our wonderful collaboration with APC, 'The Unusual Suspects' will launch in the USA and we couldn’t think of a better home for it than Hulu, who are at the forefront of bold, ambitious television. We hope American audiences enjoy this riotous, hilarious and empowering crime caper which ultimately has an important message at its heart.”
