ITV and Virgin Media Television have co-commissioned crime drama, Redemption produced by Tall Story Pictures starring Paula Malcomson
Paula Malcomson (The Hunger Games trilogy, Ray Donovan, Deadwood) will take the lead role in Redemption, a six-part drama jointly commissioned by ITV and Virgin Media Television, Ireland in association with Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland. From the press release:
Created by Sean Cook (The Last Ship, The Code, Holby City) and executive produced by Tall Story Pictures’ Creative Director Catherine Oldfield (The Bay, Sticks and Stones, Trauma) and Executive Producer Patrick Schweitzer (Bancroft, Save Me, SSGB), the drama introduces plain speaking, no nonsense DI Colette Cunningham, whose fearless approach to policing has earned her the respect of her Merseyside Police Serious Crime Squad colleagues.
Career driven and dedicated, Colette is unflappable and an absolute force of nature. Until she takes a call from Garda Sergeant Luke Byrne in Dublin. The body of a young woman has been found and Colette is listed as the next of kin. The name of the victim means nothing to Colette so she continues to efficiently go about her day job. Persisting with his enquiry, the young officer calls again and begins to describe the young woman rendering Colette speechless. She takes the next ferry to Dublin to identify the body of her missing daughter, Kate.
Filming starts this month in Ireland, and we’ll bring you news of the full cast and release dates when they become available. It will be distributed internationally by ITV.
