Written by Colman’s husband, debut screenwriter Ed Sinclair, Landscapers follows the true story of Susan (Colman) and Christopher Edwards (Thewlis), a seemingly mild-mannered married couple who have dead bodies buried in their back garden in Nottingham.
Written by debut screenwriter Siân Robins-Grace, who has acted as a co-producer on Sex Education, De Swarte will play 38-year old Natasha, the friend who has never made long-term plans and spends her life doing things on her own terms. When she’s suddenly landed with a baby, her solipsistic life dramatically implodes. With controlling, manipulative and violent powers, the baby soon turns Natasha’s life into a living hell.
As Natasha begins to discover the baby’s truly deadly nature, she makes increasingly desperate attempts to escape, but the baby simply won’t let her.
The series, written and created by debut screenwriter Ed Sinclair, will see Colman and Thewlis star as the seemingly harmless couple Susan and Christopher Edwards who happen to have a couple of dead bodies buried in their back garden in Nottingham.
