The series also stars Steve Pemberton ("Whitechapel"), Siobhan Finneran ("Downton Abbey"), George Costigan ("Scott & Bailey," "Calendar Girls") and Joe Armstrong ("Robin Hood").

Nicola Shindler ("Last Tango in Halifax") and Wainwright serve as executive producers on "Happy Valley." The series is a Red Production Company production for the BBC.
