Top of the Lake

Last year’s Top of the Lake was Jane Campion’s first TV project since An Angel at My Table in 1990. However, she’s not waiting quite so long to return to the small screen next time. She’s currently developing a second season of Top of the Lake with Gerard Lee, who co-wrote the original.

The first season centered on Robin (Elisabeth Moss), a New Zealand detective investigating the disappearance of a pregnant 12-year-old in a small town. It’s unclear whether Moss or any of her co-stars will return, as very few details have been revealed so far about Season 2. But the first season was excellent, and I for one am eager to go wherever Campion wants to take me next. [Screen Daily]

After the jump, get details on the Monster-in-Law and In Good Company TV series, plus Steve McQueen’s new star.
