TRAILER: Here’s the trailer for A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, a six-part series based on Holly Jackson’s novel of the same name. It debuts in the UK on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer in July.


Produced by Moonage Pictures (The Pursuit of Love, The Gentlemen, Bodies) in coproduction with Germany’s ZDFneo and Netflix, it stars Emma Myers (Wednesday), Anna Maxwell Martin (Motherland), Gary Beadle (Rye Lane), Mathew Baynton (Ghosts) and newcomer Zain Iqbal.

Five years ago, schoolgirl Andie Bell was murdered by her boyfriend Sal Singh. Case closed. The police know he did it, everyone in town knows he did it. But smart and single minded Pip Fitz-Amobi (Myers) isn’t so sure and she’s determined to prove it. If Sal Singh isn’t a murderer and the real killer is still out there, how far will they go to keep Pip from the truth?

As Pip digs into the past and uncovers more secrets and lies, she finds herself drawn into the dark underside of Little Kilton.

A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder is adapted by Poppy Cogan, directed by Dolly Wells and produced by Florence Walker. Executive producers are Matthew Read, Matthew Bouch and Frith Tiplady for Moonage Pictures, with Lucy Richer and Danielle Scott-Haughton for the BBC, and Dolly Wells, Holly Jackson and Poppy Cogan.

BBC Studios is handling international distribution of the series.

A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder was filmed in and around Somerset, England. All episodes will arrive on BBC iPlayer on Monday, July 1, and will air on BBC Three later that month.
