SUNDANCE NOW'S NEW SUSPENSEFUL SERIES "INNOCENT," STARRING LEE INGLEBY, SET TO MAKE ITS U.S. DEBUT ON THE PREMIUM STREAMING SERVICE THURSDAY, MARCH 22ND
New York, NY - March 8, 2017 - Sundance Now, AMC Networks' premium video streaming service announced today that its newest scripted drama, "Innocent," will make its U.S. debut Thursday, March 22nd. New episodes of the fast-paced thriller, starring Lee Ingleby ("The A Word," "Inspector George Gently"), will stream weekly every Thursday until its conclusion April 12th.
The limited series follows David Collins (Ingleby) as he returns home after seven years imprisoned for the murder of his wife. When the initial judgement is overturned due to a technicality, Collins is left a free man and soon finds himself facing a new investigation that unveils dark secrets of abuse, affairs and money troubles. As a web of lies unmasks new potential suspects, fragile relationships are ripped apart at the seams, but one question remains: is David Collins truly innocent?
Jan Diedrichsen, General Manager of SundanceTV and Sundance Now, said, "'Innocent' is the ultimate whodunit, and audiences will be captivated with the twists and turns that unfold weekly. We are also thrilled to have Lee Ingleby back in the Sundance family - we love him in 'The A Word' and his performance is no less than brilliant in this series, too."
Alongside Lee Ingleby ("The A Word"), the four-part series stars Angel Coulby ("The Tunnel," "Merlin") as the new investigation's D.I. Cathy Hudson; Daniel Ryan ("Mount Pleasant") plays Phil, Collin's understanding brother; and Hermione Norris ("Cold Feet") and Adrian Rawlins ("Dickensian") star as Alice and Rob - his wife's suspicious sister and brother-in law.
"Innocent" is executive produced by Jeremy Gwilt ("Foyle's War"), and written by Chris Lang ("The Tunnel," "Unforgotten") and Matthew Arlidge ("Silent Witness"). The series is directed by Richard Clark ("Outlander"). It is a TXTV production licensed through all3media international.
