BBC One’s four-part drama The Cry will premiere on Sunday September 30th at 9pm, it has been announced.
The Cry chronicles the collapse of a marriage in the aftermath of a tragedy, and explores the myths and truths of motherhood. The abduction of a baby from a small coastal town in Australia is the catalyst for a journey into the disintegrating psychology of a young woman – Joanna – as she and her husband, Alistair, deal with an unthinkable tragedy under both the white light of public scrutiny and in their private lives.
The four-part drama, which is based on the novel of the same name by Helen FitzGerald and was adapted for television by Jacquelin Perske, is being produced by Scottish-based production company Synchronicity Films and stars Jenna Coleman, Ewen Leslie, Stella Gonet, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Asher Keddie, Alex Dimitriades, Markella Kavenagh and Shareena Clanton. Australian public broadcaster ABC is co-producing. The director is Glendyn Ivin, while Brian Kaczynski is the series producer. The executive producers are Claire Mundell and Gaynor Holmes for Synchronicity Films and Elizabeth Kilgarriff for the BBC.
