Starz announced today that the network has acquired the eight-episode drama series “Dublin Murders”, from Fremantle.
The series is adapted from Tana French’s first two novels in the Dublin Murder Squad crime series, “In The Woods” and “The Likeness”. It depicts a contemporary world of psychological mystery and tension, with roots that reach down deep within Ireland’s past.
“When a young girl is found murdered in a dense wood on the outskirts of Dublin, Rob Reilly (Killian Scott) – a smart-suited detective whose English accent marks him as an outsider – is dispatched to investigate with his partner, Cassie Maddox (Sarah Greene). Against his better judgment and protected by his friendship with Cassie, he is pulled back into another case of missing children and forced to confront his own darkness. As the case intensifies, Rob and Cassie’s relationship is tested to the breaking point and when Cassie is sent undercover for another murder case, she is forced to come face to face with her own brutal reckoning.”
“Dublin Murders” is an atmospheric, psychological thriller brought to life by acclaimed series creator and writer Sarah Phelps (“Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None”, J.K. Rowling’s “The Casual Vacancy”).
The lead director of the eight-part series is Saul Dibb supported by John Hayes and Rebecca Gatward.
