Holly Shanahan & Andrew Laing on "Underbelly NZ: Land of the Long Green Cloud" (2011)

While "Underbelly: Razor" was airing in Australia, their neighbors in New Zealand embarked on a little crime drama of their own with the 6-episode miniseries, "Underbelly NZ: Land of the Long Green Cloud." Since no "Underbelly" series would be complete without some PR alums amongst the cast, Holly Shanahan (Camille, Jungle Fury) & Andrew Laing fit the bill. Shanahan stars as Carole Derwent, a detective who's tired of police ignorance when it comes to the blossoming drug trade in Auckland during the '70s. With the help of her partner, Ben Charlton, they find themselves on the trail of Marty Johnstone, the man who would soon become a master criminal. With the help of a tip, the two catch Marty about to take possession of a new supply, only to see him released due to a lack of evidence. Shanahan's Jungle Fury co-star Andrew Laing (voice of Venjix, RPM) also appears on the series as Carole's superior, Detective Sergeant Laurie Mackenzie who leads the sting operation, managing to catch Marty's delivery contact, despite him trying to dump the drugs. Mackenzie is there when Carole learns that Marty will be released, ruining their efforts. The two actors share screentime in two scenes. The first episode of the series, titled "Disorganised Crime" also features appearances by PR actors John Leigh (voice of The Master, Mystic Force), Joel Tobeck (voice of Footzilla, Ninja Storm) and Jaime Passier-Armstrong (Skyla, Ninja Storm). A full zip of Holly Shanahan's screencaps is available below.
