The Sounds on Acorn TV

Get ready for your new TV obsession as Acorn Original The Sounds, a brand new eight-part psychological thriller, premieres exclusively in the UK on Acorn TV this September.

A riveting multi-layered drama, set against the spectacular backdrop of one of New Zealand's greatest hidden secrets, the remote, idyllic Marlborough Sounds in South Island, we meet successful Canadian couple Maggie and Tom played by Rachelle Lefevre (Proven Innocent, White House Down) and Matt Whelan (Narcos, The Luminaries) who have upped sticks to start a new life in this paradise on the other side of the world.

Determined to escape the rat race, particularly Tom's family business and overbearing father, the pair are ready for a new chapter. Tom has gone ahead to lay down the groundwork for his new business venture, a salmon fishery in the town of Pelorus, where he hopes to reinvigorate their struggling economy. But the day after Maggie arrives, Tom mysteriously disappears on a boating trip and Maggie must come to terms with the fact that she may not have known her husband as well as she thought...

Local cop Jack McGregor (Matt Nable, Arrow, Riddick) spearheads the search, revealing disturbing secrets and bringing long-buried wounds to the surface. As Maggie struggles to navigate the escalating events, it becomes clear that in this small, seemingly close-knit community, nothing and no one are as they appear. Did they choose the wrong town for their happy ending?

Episodes 1 & 2 premiere September 3rd, 2020, with further episodes airing on subsequent Mondays through October 12th.
