Production on the four-part series, based on Robert Wilson’s bestselling Javier Falcón novels, begins in Seville this week.
The Blind Man of Seville follows Falcón‘s investigation into a brutal killing as he finds that the case seems to have echoes with his own family history.
Guest stars will include Charlie Creed-Miles (Harry Brown) as Ramirez, Falcón’s deputy in the Seville Police and Hayley Atwell (Captain America) as Consuelo Jimenez, the widow of a murder victim who may also be the number one suspect.
Emilia Fox (Silent Witness) will play Ines, the estranged wife of Falcón, whilst Kerry Fox (Shallow Grave) is his sister, Manuela. Bernard Hill (The Lord of The Rings) takes the role of wealthy art dealer Ramon Salgado and Santiago Cabrera (Heroes) will play Judge Esteban Calderon.
Marton Csokas, best known as Elven Lord Celeborn in Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy, will play Falcón’s title character.
The second two-part story will be The Silent and the Damned, which sees a suicide take Falcón to an exclusive area of Seville where “wealthy neighbours keep their secrets well hidden and there’s more in the freezer than just food”.
Falcón will air exclusively on Sky Atlantic later this year.
