Eve Myles, Katherine Kelly and Dougray Scott star in The Crow Girl

Paramount+ UK & Ireland today announced the commission of the original UK drama series with Eve Myles, Katherine Kelly and Dougray Scott cast in the lead roles…

From Emmy-winning creative team Buccaneer and adapted from the trilogy of novels by Erik Axl Sund, the six-part series is described by Paramount+ as ‘a multi-faceted contemporary psychological thriller.’

Sebastian Cardwell, Deputy Chief Content Officer, UK, and Paul Testar for Paramount+:

“We are thrilled to be working with Buccaneer again on the adaption of this gripping novel. Eve, Katherine and Dougray are the perfect leads for this series, and I can’t wait to see them bring these characters to life”.

The Crow Girl begins with the gruesome discovery of a teenage boy’s body discarded in plain sight. Determined to find who is responsible, DCI Jeanette Kirkland (Eve Myles) joins forces with psychotherapist Sophia Craven (Katherine Kelly) to hunt the killer despite opposition from her superiors including confidant DI Lou Stanley (Dougray Scott).

The investigation takes them into a dangerous world of historic abuse and murder. Together they uncover a chain of shocking events that have gone overlooked for decades, as well as evidence of police corruption.  As the body count rises and the two women are dragged into the depths of the murders, an intimacy starts to form between them, and so begins a complex, twisted love story. All the while, the killer is inching ever closer to home.

Also joining the cast are Clara Rugaard as Victoria Burkeman, Victoria Hamilton as Superintendent Verity Pound, Elliot Edusah is DC Mike Dilliston, Chloe Sweetlove plays Madeleine Burkeman and Lee Boardman is David White.

Eve Myles:

“Jeanette is such a compelling character. As soon as I read the script, I knew I wanted to explore her story in more detail. It’s been a really terrific first few weeks on set working alongside a team of such incredible talented people!”

Katherine Kelly:

“I’m delighted to get started on this absorbing story filming in beautiful Bristol. The book is thrilling and Milly Thomas’ scripts are even better, and I am excited to start unpicking the character of Sophia as events in the series unfold.”

Dougray Scott:

“I am thrilled to get started on The Crow Girl and I am really looking forward to working with all of the extremely talented people on this production.”

Tony Wood and Richard Tulk-Hart are executive producers for Buccaneer along with Milly Thomas who adapted the series for the screen. Charles Martin and Rebecca Rycroftare both directors of the series with Andy Mosse serving as producer. ITV Studios will distribute the drama internationally. It commenced filming in Bristol this month. The Crow Girl will be available exclusively on Paramount+ in the UK & Ireland.
