RTS award-winning actress Olivia Colman will star in a new drama for Sky and HBO called Landscapers.
The four-part series will be the latest project from Sister shared by the broadcasters following the success of Chernobyl.
Landscapers will follow the true crime story of the seemingly innocuous couple Susan (Colman) and Christopher Edwards, who came to murder Susan’s parents and bury them in their garden in Mansfield, where they remained undiscovered for a decade.
Directed by Academy Award winner Alexander Payne (The Descendants) and written by Ed Sinclair, the black comedy series offers a playful portrayal of this unique murder case.
Viewers will be drawn into the darkly funny and thrilling world of murderers Susan and Christopher, who explore the power and peril of love and fantasy through surreal stories of their own invention.
Cameron Roach, Director of Drama at Sky Studios, commented: “Ed’s scripts are a riveting and sensitive exploration of what could drive such an ordinary couple to commit murder and I’m delighted that Olivia Colman will bring Susan to life in what promises to be a compelling series.”
The series, which begins filming this year, will air on Sky Atlantic and NowTV in the UK.
