Hiding (TV Series 2015–2015)

A Gold Coast family enters the witness protection program and winds up in a strange city, under the flight-path, miles from the beach, pursued by ruthless criminals; Dad hides out in the local university, in the Psychology Department. This is the story of Lincoln and Bec, and their children Mitch and Tara - trying to live a normal life while hiding out in a totally alien city. It's the struggle to hold together a dysfunctional family, in extraordinary circumstances. It's warm, funny and scary, sometimes all at once.

Hiding (TV series)

Hiding is an Australian television drama series which screened on ABC1 from 5 February 2015. The eight-part series follows a Gold Coast family in witness protection who must build a new life in a strange city, Sydney. It is created by Matt Ford and directed by Shawn Seet, Tori Garrett and Grant Brown.


After a botched drug deal, Troy (James Stewart) must take his family into Witness Protection in exchange for giving evidence against his former employer, vicious crime boss Nils Vandenberg (Marcus Graham).

With new names and fresh identities, the Quigg family is ripped from their home on the sun-drenched Gold Coast and dumped in a safe house in Western Sydney as the Swift Family. But dislocation puts immense pressure on everyone.

Lincoln Swift's cover as a post-doctorate fellow in the Criminal Psychology Department of a Sydney university challenges him in fundamental ways. He's told to keep his head down and meet with handler John Pinder (Stephen Curry) to prepare his testimony. But the academic teachings of the department begin to conflict with Lincoln's real-life experience.

Lincoln's wife, Rebecca (Kate Jenkinson), has to give up her nursing career and cease all contact with her mother Jenny (Paula Duncan), brother Kosta Krilich (Nathan Page), and her very pregnant sister-in-law and best friend Dimity (Jodi Gordon). Isolation and the pressure of keeping her family safe take their toll, and Rebecca reaches out to an old friend with serious consequences.

A bureaucratic bungle lands Mitchell (Lincoln Younes) and Tara (Olivia DeJonge) in a performing arts school. While it’s a happy outcome for aspirational fifteen-year-old Tara, it's torture for seventeen-year-old surfer, Mitchell, who is desperate to get his old life back, especially his gorgeous girlfriend, Kelly (Jenna Kratzel). Adding to the teenager's torment, no phones or Facebook, no texts or Twitter. Because a trace could bring a killer to their door.

As the dysfunctional Swift family adjusts to their new world living with constant threat of corrupt cops or a leak within Witness Protection, a surprise phone call unleashes an emotional upheaval that could crack their cover and bring those who want Lincoln silenced gunning for him and those he loves.
