Claire Foy is reported as starring in new Britbox drama Marlow

Thanks to The Knowledge Bulletin, we can tell you Claire Foy will star in Marlow, a Britbox Original crime drama from Motive Pictures and Endeavor Content. Due to be 8 one hour episodes, it’s the story of two warring families — the Marlows and the Wyatts — pitted against each other amid the unsettling landscape of the Thames Estuary known as ‘The Edgelands’. The series has been created by Tony Grisoni and Simon Maxwell and will begin filming in the autumn. They are also executive produces, as is Foy.

Foy said: “I’m delighted to be a part of this compelling thriller. Tony and Simon’s scripts are so evocative of place and redolent with atmosphere — and the twists, turns and mysteries at the heart of this drama are utterly gripping. Evie Wyatt is such a captivating, complex and beguiling character, much like the enigmatic ‘Edgelands’ which she calls home, and I can’t wait to get to step into her shoes.”
