Holly Hunter (who won a Best Actress Oscar for her role in Campion's 1993 film "The Piano"), Peter Mullan, David Wenham and Thomas M. Wright also star in the series, which was co-directed by Garth Davis. In the exclusive featurette about "Top of the Lake" below, Campion explains that "The desire to write a really clever, satisfying crime mystery story which had enough room to expand like a true novel was exciting to me."
