Deadline (available from 29th December 2022)

When Natalie Varga (Charlie Murphy, Happy Valley, Peaky Blinders) stands accused of murdering her husband in cold blood, disgraced investigative journalist James Alden (James D’Arcy, Agent Carter, Broadchurch) finds himself captivated by the case.

The mystery of whether she committed the crime broadens into a darker, stranger narrative as the London setting shifts to Hungarian high society. It’s a crime perfectly designed to cause a press feeding frenzy – the gruesome murder of businessman George Varga in his lavish Chelsea mansion.

James used to be an award-winning investigative journalist years ago but his confidence was destroyed by the case he screwed up which allowed a killer to go free.

Natalie sees in him the journalist he used to be and offers him redemption: the exclusive interview everyone wants if he finds out who really killed her husband. In the tradition of classic noir a key character returns from the dead and becomes pivotal to the mystery.

With the court of public opinion ruling Natalie guilty until proven innocent, can James separate the truth from the fiction?

The tragic case that shocked the nation – Maxine is a true crime drama that examines the investigation of school assistant Maxine Carr and her caretaker fiancé Ian Huntley, who was later imprisoned for the double murder of schoolgirls Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman.

Wicky (Davies) is a state-certified cleaning technician responsible for the removal of any signs of death from the scenes of ghastly crimes. When the detectives are done, he moves in, armed with his bleach, scrubbing brushes and cleaning rags. He’s a thoroughly decent everyman who always gets the dirty jobs.

Those jobs bring him into contact with the strangest people: those who knew the victims, and sometimes even the killers themselves. But because he’s a chatty man, Wicky tends to gossip more than he cleans. With every crime scene there’s a new topical theme or moral question to debate – with whoever he finds himself talking to.
