Professor Wolfe

Wolfe trailer released ahead of September release

Posted Filed under

Ahead of the September release, Sky has released a first look trailer for Wolfe — we tell you more

It’s billed as:

…a feel-good series about dead folks, that is not afraid to get up close and personal with blood and gore. Explosive stakes and unique crime scene discoveries only add to its energy, attitude, and wit, taking it miles ahead of any other forensic series…

We spot a touch of iZombie, but not so much as to make this seem particularly derivative. It was written and created by Paul Abbott (Shameless, No Offence). Starring Babou Ceesay (Damilola, Our Loved Boy) in the title role, the six-part story of the week series follows Forensic Scientist Professor Wolfe Kinteh, a forensic powerhouse and North England’s finest crime scene expert. Wolfe’s brilliance comes with an appetite for bending any rule he encounters, but all for the very best reasons.

Ceesay is joined by an ensemble cast including Amanda Abbington (Sherlock), Natalia Tena (Game of Thrones), Adam Long (The Bay), Naomi Yang (Chimerica), Talitha Wing (Alex Rider), Shaniqua Okwok (Small Axe) and Christine Tremarco (Little Boy Blue).

Each week, Wolfe and his team are sent to new, compelling locations to piece together the parts of an outlandish and unconventional investigation. His team will face exploding vehicles, buildings and even bodies, doing anything to unearth the mysterious truth behind these crimes. One thing is for sure though, they won’t be doing it in a way anybody expected as Wolfe attacks life with a bipolar approach and deploys his scientific brain to each new case, but what works so well on a crime scene, at home, not so much.

You can read more in the Sky press release, and there’s also a trailer. The show arrives on Sky Max and NOW on September 10.
