BBC America will revisit London in the era of Jack the Ripper in a new drama series from Tiger Aspect Prods. and Lookout Point. Variety reports that BBC America has boarded “Ripper Street” as a co-producer, and BBC Worldwide will handle international distribution.
The series starring Matthew Macfadyen (“MI-5,” “The Pillars of the Earth”) and Jerome Flynn (“Game of Thrones”) is “Set in London’s East End in 1889, during the aftermath of the murder spree that remains one of history’s most notorious serial killer cases. Series revolves around the police precinct tasked with keeping order in the rough Whitechapel neighborhood, and it will delve into the lives of characters affected by the murders.”
The series created by Brit drama vet Richard Warlow (“Mistresses,” “The Waking the Dead”) was commissioned for eight episodes by the Beeb last September. It began lensing skedded in Dublin earlier this month and will bow as part of the cabler’s “Dramaville” block of original drama series.
