Cleverman

On June 1, the new Australian series Cleverman will debut on SundanceTV at 10 PM.

Set in the near future, the series is a startlingly original drama rooted in Aboriginal mythology, depicting a deeply conflicted and anxious society, fearful of a minority group living among them, endowed with extraordinary physical traits.

One young man – The Cleverman – struggles with his own power and the responsibility to unite this divided world, but he must first overcome a deep estrangement from his older brother.

Here is a trailer for Cleverman:
