Based on the 2019 Belgian series De Twaalf, The Twelve is the story of 12 jurors who, while dealing with their own personal struggles, must decide the case of a woman accused of killing a child. 

Satchwell will play a North Shore based mother-of-three named Georgina who has been called in for jury duty.

‘Georgina is kind of at a point of suffocation in her life, she’s not living in the happiest of circumstances,’ she teased.

Kate Mulvany meanwhile spoke about the ‘tricky’ task of playing the accused. 

‘She is a photographic artist and her work is quite confronting,’ Kate, 44, said.

She continued: ‘My character has a lot of stuff said about her without the right of reply and that can be really, really tricky as an actor especially in a courtroom situation.’

‘To get caught up in the judgment of so many people when all you want to do is just protect your art, but also protect your fate.’
