Stingers

Show Summary

Stingers was a long running and popular Australian drama series, with eight seasons and 192 episodes on the Nine Network Australia. Inspired by the life of a real undercover operative, Stingers is about undercover cops: people with covert lives and constantly changing identities. It reveals the shadowy and ambiguous life of police who work behind enemy lines, always without a badge and frequently without protection. The show focused on the members of the undercover unit, their professional, and their personal lives. In Seasons One and Two, the Head of Undercover was Bernie Rocca (played by Joe Petruzzi), with the other unit members being Ellen 'Mac' Mackenzie (Anita Hegh), Peter Church (Peter Phelps), Angie Piper (Kate Kendall), Oscar Stone (Ian Stenlake) and Kaye Kelso (Jessica Napier). Kaye left the unit after a close encounter with a killer, and Bernie retired in the Season 2 finale. The show was almost not renewed for a third season. In Season Three, Mac became the head of the unit, and Danni Mayo (Roxane Wilson) joined the unit. The show began to show its strength, with a successful blend of personal and professional drama, becoming a staple of Nine's Tuesday night line-up. In Season Six after Mac and Oscar's departure, the unit went through a revamp, moving its headquarters, and a new head, Luke Harris (Gary Sweet). Christina Dichiera (Jacinta Stapleton) joined the unit. Unhappy with the way the new-look unit was working, Danni left. In Season Seven, the unit got a new assistant, Sophie Novak (Katrina Milosevic) and a new constable, Leo Flynn (Daniel Frederiksen). In Season Eight, ratings began slipping when Nine moved the show to 10:30pm at night, and despite claims that it was a "viable long-term 10:30 show", and despite that production continued after the move, it was not renewed for a ninth season.moreless
