LONDON KILLS, Series 1 (Exclusive World Premiere, Acorn TV Original, First straight-to-series commission)
'Every great city has a dark side'
Created by Paul Marquess (Suspects), with the world's most recognisable city as its backdrop, LONDON KILLS dramatizes the experiences of a team of top murder detectives. Slick, modern and fast moving, the series is shot documentary-style on the streets of London. As the series opens, Detective Inspector Bradford returns to work - following the unsolved disappearance of his wife - much to the frustration of Detective Sergeant Cole, who has been running the murder team in his absence. The team tackles a new riveting murder case in each episode. In the series opener a young man is discovered hanging from a tree on a hill with panoramic views of London. The stakes are raised when the team discover that his mother is a high-profile politician. The series also has a serial story involving the lead detective's missing wife. LONDON KILLS stars Hugo Speer (Britannia, The Full Monty, Father Brown), Sharon Small (Mistresses, Murderland, Inspector Lynley Mysteries, About a Boy, Trust Me), Bailey Patrick (Bodyguard, Casualty, EastEnders) and Tori Allen-Martin (Unforgotten, Pure).
