tatau - Start Trippin' on this Sneak Peek of BBC America's Tatau

BBC America’s trippy new series “Tatau” debuts on April 18th at 10/9c, right after the premiere of “Orphan Black” Season 3, and a new sneak peek has dropped online.

“Tatau” follows Kyle (Joe Layton) and Budgie (Theo Barklem-Biggs), two twenty-something friends from London that set off to travel the world. Ahead of the journey Kyle gets a Maori-style tattoo to celebrate their eventual destination: the Cook Islands.

When snorkeling in a lagoon, Kyle finds the dead body of a local girl, Aumea, tied up underwater. Returning to the lagoon with the police, Kyle finds her corpse has disappeared. But Kyle knows what he saw. Desperate to uncover what happened, Kyle and Budgie find themselves sucked deeper and deeper into a world of Maori myths, symbols, and hallucinatory visions… until finally the full meaning of Kyle’s tattoo is revealed.

Joe and Theo are joined by Dutch actor Barry Atsma as well as various New Zealanders including actresses Shushila Takao, Cian Elyse White, and Tai Berdinner-Blades and actors Temuera Morrison, Alex Tarrant, Rawiri Jobe, Kirk Torrance, and Rangimoana Taylor.

The (8×60) series is co-produced by Touchpaper TV (“Being Human”) and New Zealand’s largest screen production company, South Pacific Pictures, for BBC Three and BBC America.  Richard Zajdlic, creator and writer, and Rob Pursey are the executive producers for Touchpaper TV, John Barnett and Chris Bailey for South Pacific in New Zealand, and Matthew Read for the BBC. John Rushton is producer, and Wayne Yip is lead director. Production took place in the Cook Islands and New Zealand.
