True Colours’ Erica Glynn: ‘Let’s not be polite about this, let’s keep going!’

True Colours is a four part true-crime drama about a small Indigenous community and the suspicious accident that ties them all together.

After a long time away, Detective Toni Alma is assigned to investigate a suspicious car accident in her hometown of Perdar Theendar. What was the injured young local woman, Mariah, doing in country closed for men’s business? And who drove the other car whose tracks remain behind hers? Detective Nick Gawler arrives to assist, and with local police officer, Samuel Alma, the three have a mystery to unravel …

And thus begins True Colours, which premieres this NAIDOC week – a new Australian drama series from SBS and NITV. The four-part miniseries is created, written and directed by Erica Glynn and Steven McGregor. It was filmed in the Macdonnell Ranges, east of Alice Springs (Mparntwe).
