The Strip is an Australian television drama series that screened on the Nine Network. The series premiered on the Nine Network at 8:30pm on 4 September 2008 but was moved to a later 10:30pm timeslot from 13 November 2008.[1] The show did not return for a second season, due to disappointing ratings.[2]


The Strip is a police detective drama series that follows investigations into crimes on the Gold Coast, Queensland, colloquially referred to as "The Strip". Visually, the program took much inspiration from CSI: Miami and was filmed with images of sparkling surf, aerial shots of buildings and golden sands, as well as similar post production filters and colouring.[3] It had a budget of A$7.8 million.[2]


Guests in the series include Jay Laga'aia, Martin Sacks, Indiana Evans, Matthew Newton, Gillian Alexy, and Tahyna Tozzi.[4]
