Joe Layton (New Worlds, Father Brown) and Theo Barklem-Biggs (Silk, The Inbetweeners Movie) have been cast as Kyle Connor and Paul 'Budgie' Griffiths – the lead roles in BBC AMERICA's new drama Tatau. Set in the Cook Islands, the (8×60) series, written by Richard Zajdlic, is co-produced by Touchpaper TV (Being Human) and New Zealand's largest screen production company, South Pacific Pictures, for BBC Three and BBC AMERICA.Tatau follows Kyle (Layton) and Budgie (Barklem-Biggs), two twenty-something friends from London that set off to travel the world. Ahead of the journey, Kyle gets a Maori-style tattoo to celebrate their eventual destination: the Cook Islands.When snorkeling in a lagoon, Kyle finds the dead body of a local girl, Aumea, tied up underwater. Returning to the lagoon with the police, Kyle finds her corpse has disappeared. But Kyle knows what he saw. Desperate to uncover what happened, Kyle and Budgie find themselves sucked deeper and deeper into a world of Maori myths, symbols, and hallucinatory visions… until finally the full meaning of Kyle's tattoo is revealed.
Previous to his backpacking trip around the world, Kyle had a tattoo inked on his arm - a mark that he had designed himself. Upon his arrival in the beautiful South Pacific island of Manutaki, he finds that the tattoo provokes unexpected reactions from the locals, and he and his friend Budgie decide to determine their significance. Along the way, Kyle believes he has uncovered a terrible crime, but struggles to convince anybody that it has been committed. While he tries to convince his friends, he unwittingly upsets the Manutaki residents, who do not take kindly to foreigners making accusations.
Convinced that a terrible crime is going to be committed, Kyle becomes entangled with a powerful local family. He also delves deeper into the ancient local culture which includes shamans, spirits and hallucinogenic potions. Is Kyle now able to access prophetic visions or is he simply losing his mind? After the previous revelation, Kyle seeks further confirmation of his powers when he insists on speaking to Aumea - the beautiful daughter of a powerful Manutaki Island family - and discovers the meaning of her tattoo. But Kyle's claims continue to stir up trouble and he still cannot convince people of the danger that Aumea might be in. Budgie's debts continue to be a worry, but maybe he has found a solution on the island?
Kyle's connection to Aumea causes her family to take drastic action.
