Billed as a “thrilling new four-part drama”, Chasing Shadows tells the story of a missing persons field unit tasked with tracking down serial killers who prey on impressionable and vulnerable people.
Shearsmith takes on the role of socially awkward DS Sean Stone, whilst Kingston will play his partner Ruth Hattersley who is described as a stabilising influence. Sean refuses to be tethered to Ruth, but eventually learns that he and Ruth make an awesome team.
Clarke will play DI Prior in the drama which has been written by Rob Williams, with filming due to begin in the South East shortly.
Chasing Shadows will be produced by the ITV Studios drama team headed by Francis Hopkinson.
