The BBC has announced further casting for crime thriller The Jetty, starring Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who).
The show follows a rookie detective as she investigates a fire in her home town, bringing her into contact with more than one of the less savoury residents.
Amongst the cast are Ralph Ineson (The Witch), Archie Renaux (Shadow and Bone), Laura Marcus (Bad Education), Amelia Bullmore (Happy Valley) and Ruby Stokes (Lockwood & Co.). Also joining the show are Weruche Opia (I May Destroy You), Miya Ocego (I Hate Suzie), Tom Glynn-Carney (House of the Dragon) and Nina Barker-Francis (The Flash).
Dominic Coleman (Paddington), Elliot Cowan (The Crown), Bo Bragason (The Ballad of Renegade Nell) and Matthew McNulty (The Terror) will also appear in the four-part thriller. This is alongside Arthur Hughes (Help), David Ajala (Italian Studies) and Shannon Watson (HP Lovecraft’s Witch House).
The Jetty follows rookie detective Ember Manning’s investigation of the fire that ripped through a Lancashire holiday home. Along the way, she has to contend with a podcaster investigating a missing persons cold case and the illicit entanglements between a grown man and two underage girls.
Mannings’ enquiries bring up questions of morality and memory in a place not touched by the #MeToo movement.
The show was announced in August 2023, and is written and created by Cat Jones (Harlots). It is produced by Firebird Pictures, a production label owned by BBC Studios, with Marialy Rivas directing.
Elizabeth Kilgarriff, Sarah Wyatt, Cat Jones, Marialy Rivas, Jenna Coleman and Jo McClellan executive produce.
The BBC has not yet disclosed a broadcast date for The Jetty.
