Dexter star Michael C Hall is to take the lead role in Netflix’s upcoming drama Safe, from Red Productions.
Adapted from novelist Harlan Coben’s story of the same name, the eight-part drama also stars Amanda Abbington (Sherlock, Crooked House).
The screenplay has been written by Bafta and Emmy Award winning writer Danny Brocklehurst (Ordinary Lies, The Driver, Shameless) and will stream globally on Netflix, apart from in France where it will be shown on Canal+.
The show follows paediatric surgeon Tom who must raise his two daughters Jenny and Carrie alone after the tragic death of his wife. Overcoming adversity, Tom and the girls are doing well and rebuilding their lives after the tragedy until one night Jenny sneaks out to go to a party. That night their lives are turned upside down again as a murder and a disappearance shake their world, and long-buried secrets come rising to the surface.
Shooting started today on the show which will hit screens around the world in 2018.
