Emma Freeman, Joanna Werner on starry Matchbox miniseries Secret City

For director Emma Freeman, one of the most exciting things about filming the new political thriller miniseries Secret City was the opportunity to film locations that have never before been seen on-screen.

“We shot some beautiful scenes out in the PM’s courtyard”, she recalls. 

“Peta Credlin was there and she came out and took some selfies with Sacha Horler, who was very much inspired by Peta Credlin for her character.”

Secret City – which was adapted from former journalists Chris Uhlmann and Steve Lewis’ novels The Marmalade Files and The Mandarin Code – premiered on Foxtel on June 5 and will shortly be released on DVD.
