First Look

FIRST LOOK: Annabel Scholey and Colin Morgan star in psychological drama Dead & Buried, coming soon to the BBC and Virgin Media Television in Ireland.

Outside a supermarket with her young son, Cathy (Scholey) encounters Michael (Morgan) – the man convicted of the brutal murder of her brother, 20 years earlier. Ignoring the advice of her best friend, Cathy takes to social media, uncovering the successful career and family life Michael has forged for himself since his early release from prison, while she grieved for her brother.

Re-traumatised by her past, Cathy instigates a clandestine relationship with the man she despises, embarking on a campaign of harassment and deceit. As Cathy’s obsession grows, dark fantasies of revenge and reality blur as she sets out on a campaign of psychological warfare to destroy Michael’s life.

The images show cast members Morgan, Scholey, Waj Ali, Kerri Quinn, Niamh Walsh and Micheal Hanna. Owen Roe and Joanne Crawford also star.

Written by Colin Bateman (Murphy’s Law, Doc Martin) and directed by Laura Way (Maxine, Blood), it is produced by Three River Fiction and Vico Films with support from Screen Ireland, Northern Ireland Screen and Coimisiún na Meán.

Set on the Irish border, the series was filmed earlier this year in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. It will air this autumn on BBC One Northern Ireland and BBC iPlayer.

All3Media International is handling distribution.
