Created by writer Patrick Harbinson (24, Law And Order), the three-part series will begin shooting on location in South Africa from September. However, Series 2’s storyline will in fact see King deal with a situation in Kashmir, India, rather than South Africa.
The official synopsis reads: “His hostages become embroiled in the siege of a tourist coach and Dominic faces the challenge of negotiating for the safety of a multi-national group of people, battling against the intervention of the Indian police and trying to get to the source of the kidnappers’ motives.”
Star and executive producer Trevor Eve commented: “I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of producing the first series of Kidnap And Ransom for ITV and bringing Dominic King to life. On behalf of Projector Pictures we’re delighted we’ve been given a second series.”
