Returning Series

From Hans Rosenfeldt, writer of the The Bridge, comes Marcella—a dark and complex thriller set on the streets of London. Detective Marcella Backland is confronted by the return of a killer from her past while battling the fear she herself might be responsible for the murders.

In season 2, a corpse is discovered inside a wall and Marcella soon figures out it’s Leo Priestley—a schoolboy abducted a few years earlier and a friend of her own son, Edward. An investigation ensues as Marcella continues to struggle with her fragile psychological state.

Produced by Tony Wood’s Buccaneer Media and co-created by Hans Rosenfeldt and Nicola Larder (The Tunnel), Marcella is told in Rosenfeldt’s unflinchingly clear Nordic noir style and is his first series created for an English-speaking audience.


When Marcella premiered on ITV (UK) it dominated the evening viewing with ratings of 8M, a 29% share 

Marcella was one of the UK’s highest rated scripted shows in 2016
