Netflix Orders Australian Animated Comedy Series ‘Pacific Heat’
Netflix just added another animated comedy to its lineup. According to Variety, the streaming network has given a 13-episode order to Pacific Heat, which is co-created by Santo Cilauro, Tom Gleisner, and Rob Sitch from Australia’s Working Dog Productions. Here’s more details on the project from Variety:
Pacific Heat follows the exploits of a dynamic unit of undercover police investigators working on the glitzy Gold Coast of Australia. The glamorous, sophisticated and sun-drenched paradise masks a hot-bed of crime — everyone from drug smugglers and biker gangs to eco-terrorists and the person who invented frozen yogurt — and in order to tackle this seedy underbelly, police established a covert squad of highly-trained operatives, known as Pacific Heat. When criminals strike, the squad will be there in an unconventional and uncompromising manner, and not afraid to operate outside the law — provided at least one of them is wearing a fluorescent safety vest.
Pacific Heat will debut on Netflix Friday, December 2nd.
