Amanda Pharrell (Nicole Chamoun), an eccentric private investigator with a disturbing criminal past, recruits disgraced ex-cop Ted Conkaffey (Thomas Jane), to help her solve her first real case: the disappearance of a Korean family man and tech pioneer.

Troppo is a prime time murder mystery drama series set in the wilds of tropical Far North Queensland. Inspired by Candice Fox’s bestselling novel Crimson Lake , the eight-part series centres on disgraced ex-cop Ted Conkaffey (Thomas Jane) who is begrudgingly recruited by Amanda Pharrell (Nicole Chamoun) – an eccentric private investigator with a disturbing criminal past – to investigate what emerges to be the murder of a brilliant tech pioneer. As they battle to uncover the truth amid the tightly held secrets of Crimson Lake, their own traumatic pasts are dragged painfully into the present – tearing them apart.

From crocodile infested waters to a tech giant’s headquarters, this unlikely pair poke their noses where they’re not wanted, in search of the truth – much to the annoyance of the local police department. They dig into the underbelly of the Crimson Lake community, opening up old wounds and uncovering a string of bizarre deaths. As they edge dangerously closer to the truth, they find themselves plunged into a mutual fight for sanity and indeed survival.
