The Claremont Murders (nee Claremont)

The disappearance of young women launches a 25-year investigation by the police and one tenacious journalist, all in dogged determination to seek justice. From the creatives behind Seven’s compelling drama Catching Milat , this four-hour investigative mini-series is a Screentime (a Banijay Group company) production for the Seven Network, with major production investment from Screen Australia in association with Seven, with finance from Screen NSW.

If Screen NSW provided some production funding, does it mean the series will be filmed in NSW rather than WA where the cases took place? Why isn’t Screenwest interested?

Not necessarily. It may have just been edited in NSW, or some interior scenes.

Claremont?

Not the most compelling title. My first thought that it was a Jane Austen style period drama.

Better than The Claremont?

True. :rofl:

Surely Claremont Killer, the name that was used to describe him when they were hunting him down, would be better.

What’s the bet that Seven’s gonna use this as an excuse to potentially cancel this given that they seem to have a permanent aversion to drama.

Seven doesn’t like Aussie drama at all. They just focus too much on reality TV

Seven has Home and Away so they think they don’t need to produce much more.

Nine and Ten aren’t much better. Ten has axed Neighbours and has no first run dramas now. Nine has only two mini series this year.

Seven has S2 of RDFS next year which will be good but still not enough. Nine I have no idea though they do a lot on Stan. They should be airing those after a few months on FTA to get some drama on TV.

I think If you look at the stuff that has been coming out there will be at least 3 dramas on 10 next year

Aren’t they Paramount+ first though and 10 later?

NCIS sydney and the new Ch5 uk collaborations are supposedly 10 first and Paramount+ later or at the same time.

The disappearance of three young women in Perth in the late 1990s launched a 25-year investigation by the police and one tenacious journalist, all determined to seek justice.

This seems to have had a couple of title changes since it was first announced a couple of years ago. “Anyone’s Daughter” then “Claremont” and now "The Claremont Murders’.

Screenwest funding means the mini-series will be filmed in WA.

EDIT: according to Sunday Herald Sun’s Fiona Byrne, the two-part mini-series was filmed in August this year.
