From Hans Rosenfeldt, writer of the global hit, The Bridge, comes Marcella; an original multi-stranded crime drama set in contemporary London. With a British Metropolitan Police Detective at its heart, Marcella is told with Rosenfeldt’s unflinchingly multi-layered Nordic style. Marcella will get involved in a serial murder case where the modus operandi of the killer bares a striking resemblance to an unsolved spate of killings from a decade ago.
Produced by Tony Wood’s Buccaneer Media and co-created by Hans Rosenfeldt and Nicola Larder (The Tunnel), Marcella is Rosenfeldt’s first series created for an English-speaking audience.
Marcella stars Anna Friel (Limitless) as the title character, Laura Carmichael (Downton Abbey), Sinead Cusack (Jekyll & Hyde), and Harry Lloyd (Game of Thrones).
