Telemystery: BBC America Orders New Mystery Adventure Series Tatau

Telemystery: Mystery and Suspense on Television

BBC America has announced that it will co-produce a new mystery/adventure series titled Tatau.

Set on the Cook Islands, the 8-episode series follows Kyle Connor and Pete "Budgie" Griffiths, two twenty-something friends from London that set off to travel the world. They've worked hard, saved even harder and they're now eager to soak up as many different cultures and experiences as possible.

Ahead of the journey, Kyle gets a Maori-style tattoo to celebrate their eventual destination: the Cook Islands. But upon his arrival in the South Pacific, Kyle is unsettled by the local people's reaction to his tattoo — it clearly has a significance that he is entirely unaware of. Later, while snorkeling in a lagoon, Kyle discovers the dead body of a local girl, Aumea, tied up underwater. When he returns with the police, the corpse has disappeared. Budgie questions if his friend is going mad, but Kyle begins to believe that he has instead seen into the future.

Kyle and Budgie find themselves sucked into a desperate race to prevent Aumea's murder, as Kyle learns that his gifts don't stop at prophecy … and the full meaning of the tattoo is soon revealed.

Separately, the network also announced the return of Broadchurch. The season season, in which David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan and Arthur Darvill will reprise their roles, will air in 2015. Read our review of the superb first season, here.
