IF YOU thought Canberra was dull, think again.
Secret City is the highly anticipated political thriller series staring Anna Torv, Jacki Weaver, Alan Dale and Dan Wyllie.
Filmed in our very own Parliament House and locations across Canberra and Sydney, Secret City is inspired by the best-selling novels The Marmalade Files and The Mandarin Code, written by Canberra political journalists Chris Uhlmann and Steve Lewis.
Amidst rising tension between China and America, Canberra press gallery journalist Harriet Dunkley (Torv) forces her way closer to the truth, uncovering a secret city of interlocked conspiracies which will threaten her career, her life and endangers the freedom of every Australian.
As the show unpacks high-level conspiracies, it will challenge your every perception on politics at a time where there is such uncertainty towards our political leaders.
Timely twists make it all the more realistic; even non political-buffs will get hooked. Secret City is now available to stream on Anytime.
