Strike actor Killian Scott and Sarah Greene (Penny Dreadful) are set to lead BBC One’s new psychological crime thriller, Dublin Murders.
Inspired by Tana French’s Dublin Murder Squad novels, the series follows detectives Rob Reilly (Killian Scott) and Cassie Maddox (Sarah Greene).
It sees the pair attempt to solve the murders of a young ballerina and a vivacious free-spirited woman.
Set during the height of the Celtic Tiger financial boom, the two murders, seemingly unrelated, are revealed to be connected through the cruel elements in both cases.
The eight-part series is written by Sarah Phelps, who has previously adapted JK Rowling’s Casual Vacancy and Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None.
Dublin Murders has a majority Irish cast, including Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, Moe Dunford and Leah McNamara.
“I’m delighted to be cast in Dublin Murders. To work alongside such talented people as Killian Scott and the entire creative team is a joy,” Sarah Greene commented on her new role.
“The writing is brilliant and dark and it’s thrilling to give Tana French’s words a new life on screen through the wonderful Sarah Phelps.”
Creator Sarah Phelps added, “I was so delighted to have been asked to adapt Tana French’s rich, thrilling novels in The Woods and The Likeness and from them create the complex, strange world of Dublin Murders.”
