Eden

There’s trouble in paradise.

In Eden, an upcoming Spectrum Originals series, the disappearance of a woman, Hedwig (BeBe Bettencourt, The Dry), after a party throws the lives of those around her into chaos. Standing in the center of the storm is her friend and lover, Scout (Sophie Wilde, Bird).

Set in the stunning Byron Bay, Australia, the eight-episode series unveils the darkness underlying even in beautiful places and faces. Secrets are revealed as each episode shifts to a new character, who provides new clues through a different set of eyes. Additionally, many of the characters are fluid, bringing much-needed queer representation to the mystery drama genre.
