The storyline follows Taylor Young, a girl who is fascinated by the phenomena surrounding a mysterious island, ever since her uncle’s disappearance there.
“With a gang of friends, including Nori, a wisecracking local rebel; Meesha, a tough-as-nails thrill seeker; Ellis, a hypochondriac and born worrier; and Taylor’s stepsister Lila, an aspiring vlogger, Taylor is determined to get to the bottom of the secrets and inexplicable events of the island.
“In the pursuit of the truth, the friends go on an adventure of a lifetime, facing endless beaches, hidden treasures, cryptic riddles, and thrilling legends waiting to be unravelled,” the description from Nickelodeon International and Network 10 reads.
The project is predicted to support around 165 local jobs, and inject around $9 million into our economy.
“Through Screen Queensland, my government is proud to support the screen industry in Queensland because it creates local jobs,” Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said.
“We’ve also emerged as one of the safest places to film because of the hard work of all Queenslanders in managing the global pandemic.
“Queensland is the place to be backed up by our enviable reputation for creating high-quality children’s screen content with local production companies Ludo Studio (Bluey, The Strange Chores), Like A Photon Creative (Combat Wombat, The Wishmas Tree) and The Steve Jaggi Company (Dive Club, Swimming For Gold) garnering global recognition for our screen industry.”
