Babou Ceesay (Dark Mon£y, National Treasure) and Eve Myles (Keeping Faith, Broadchurch) have been tapped to star in We Hunt Together, Alibi’s six episode cat and mouse thriller from Cheat scribe Gaby Hull and BBC Studios.
We Hunt Together follows two star-crossed killers who are on the loose with two dysfunctional detectives in hot pursuit. The series begins with the collision of two extraordinary people: Baba, a former child soldier desperate to suppress his predisposition for violence; and Freddy, a magnetic and disarmingly charming free spirit.
When Baba rescues Freddy from an attack following a date that has turned sour, something dark is ignited in them both. Meanwhile, DS Lola Franks (Eve Myles) and DI Jackson Mendy (Babou Ceesay) have to come to terms with their mismatched partnership and polar opposite outlooks on the culpability of the criminal mind as they try to outsmart the killers. Rounding out the cast is Dipo Ola (Baghdad Central, Inside No.9) as Baba, and Hermione Corfield (Star Wars The Last Jedi, Rust Creek, Mission Impossible) as Freddy.
Gaby Hull created the series, which is being produced by BBC Studios. Lisa Osborne is the series producer, while Carl Tibbetts and Jon Jones are attached to direct. The executive producers are Philippa Collie-Cousins, Hilary Salmon, Anne Pivcevic and Esther Springer. This marks the second UKTV scripted original to emanate from a partnership with BBC Studios, which sees the two co-commissioning projects that BBC Studios can then exploit on the international market.
