ITV has commissioned The Pembrokeshire Murders (w/t), a new true crime mini-series.
The three-part series is adapted from Catching the Bullseye Killer, a true crime book written by Senior Investigating Officer Steve Wilkins and ITV news journalist Jonathan Hill.
Luke Evans (Dracula) stars as Wilkins, the officer who reopened a historic double murder case from the 1980s in the hopes of catching a serial killer in 2006.
When the use of pioneering forensic methods leads the investigation back to a string of burglaries in the 1980s and 1990s, pressure mounts to prove the perpetrator is more than just a thief before his prison sentence is up.
Luke Evans commented: “It is a privilege to be playing the role of Steve Wilkins in The Pembrokeshire Murders and working again with Simon Heath, his team at World Productions and ITV.
“It’s a huge responsibility for me as the drama depicts a true crime which to this day still affects the families of those whose lives were tragically taken.”
The drama will begin filming this month.
