Who’s on the cast

James D’Arcy (Agent Carter, Broadchurch) plays James Alden. With a youthful mistake from his past putting a stop to his career as an investigative journalist, James is on a quest for redemption, making him the perfect candidate to get to the bottom of Natalie Varga’s story.

Charlie Murphy (Peaky Blinders, Happy Valley) plays Natalie. After a traumatic childhood, Natalie escaped her roots to study at Cambridge University. Adept at shifting seamlessly from warm to aloof, from relatable to untouchable, Natalie has perfected the art of being elusive. But now the murder of her husband threatens to define her in a very concrete way.

Also on the cast is Indra Ové (Breeders, Unforgotten) as Barbara, a longstanding friend and former flame of James’.

Joining the ensemble are Brian Caspe (Jojo Rabbit, Doctor Who, Carnival Row, Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard) and Anamaria Marinca (Tin Star, Temple).

Mike Benson, Executive Producer for producers Clapperboard TV, said: “We are really excited to be producing something with a nod to the neo-noirs of the 80s and early 90s.

With James, Charlie and Indra leading a fantastic cast – and some brilliant scripts packed with doubles crosses and duplicity – we are hoping we can do justice to the genre that has inspired us.”
