BBC One’s Tana French adaptation Dublin Murders will premiere on Monday October 14th at 9pm, with the second episode airing the following day (Tuesday October 15th) in the same time-slot.
Dublin Murders is set during the height of the Celtic Tiger financial boom of the millennium, will focus on two murder investigations led by ambitious and charismatic Detectives Rob Reilly and Cassie Maddox. The victims – a young talented ballerina who is found dead on an ancient stone altar; and a vivacious free-spirited woman, who is found stabbed in a roofless famine cottage – are seemingly unrelated, but as we will discover, are actually knitted together by powerful shared themes – the macabre ‘red in tooth and claw’ elements of both stories, and their heart-thumping psychological thriller qualities.
The drama series, which is based on the Dublin Murder Sqaud novels by Tana French, is produced by Euston Films, Element Pictures and Veritas Entertainment Group and stars Killian Scott, Sarah Greene, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, Moe Dunford, Leah McNamara, Ian Kenny, Eugene O’Hare, Jonny Holden, Conleth Hill and Peter McDonald. Dublin Murders was adapted for television by Sarah Phelps from the first two novels, In the Woods and The Likeness. The executive producers are Sarah Phelps, Noemi Spanos and Kate Harwood for Euston Films, Ed Guiney for Element Pictures, Alan Gasmer and Peter Jaysen for Veritas Entertainment Group and Elizabeth Kilgarriff for the BBC. Saul Dibb is the lead director and also serves as an executive producer.
