‘The Slap’ creator writing supernatural drama ‘Requiem’ for BBC One

Posted Filed under

BBC One has ordered a new psychological thriller series from the makers of The Missing and Indian Summers.

Requiem is written and created by Kris Mrksa (The Slap, Underbelly).

Mrksa commented: “Requiem is the show I’ve always wanted to make. To be making it with the team at New Pictures, and for the BBC, a network that I so greatly admire, really is a dream come true.”

Executive producers Willow Grylls and Charlie Pattinson added: “We are delighted to be given the opportunity to work with the brilliant writer Kris Mrska on this bold and distinctive series for BBC One.”

The Missing

The official synopsis for the six-part series reads: “What if your parent died and you suddenly discovered that everything they’d said about themselves, and about you, was untrue?

Requiem is part psychological thriller – the story of a young woman, who, in the wake of her mother’s death, sets out to learn the truth about herself, even to the point of unravelling her own identity. But it is also a subtle tale of the supernatural that avoids giving easy answers, playing instead on uncertainty, mystery and ambiguity.
