Death In Paradise was created by Robert Thorogood and tells the story of a quintessential English detective, DI Richard Poole, who is not so keen on sun, sea and sand but has found himself living and working on the paradise island of most people’s dreams. Now working with exotic local cop Camille, Richard goes about solving an intricate and intriguing murder. The drama series is produced Red Planet Productions in association with Kudos Film and TV & BBC Worldwide and stars Ben Miller, Sara Martins (Little White Lies), Danny John-Jules (Red Dwarf), Don Warrington (New Street Law) and Gary Carr (The Duchess).
Speaking of her guest role on Death In Paradise, Jamelia said: “I’m so excited – not only am I in a great drama filming my first TV role but I’m doing it in the Caribbean too! I’m really looking forward to working with such a talented cast.”
Executive Producer Belinda Campbell added: “We have a wonderful cast for Death in Paradise and our list of guest stars are equally exciting. Jamelia in particular was such a surprise find; she is not only a talented singer but actress too. The stories for this series are full of humour and intrigue and hopefully the whole family will have fun trying to work out whodunit each week. We can’t wait to bring a bit of Caribbean sunshine back to the cold and wet UK!”
