Jamie Sives (Guilt, Frontier), Katie Leung (The Nest, Roadkill) and Ukweli Roach (Blindspot, Humans) join Nicola Walker (The Split, Unforgotten), in six-part series Annika, which is due to air on Alibi later this year.
The series also welcomes Kate Dickie (The Nest, The Cry) as DCI Diane Oban, and Silvie Furneaux (Limbo) as Annika Strandhed's daughter, Morgan. Filming is currently underway in Scotland.
Annika is based on the hugely successful Radio 4 drama and follows the sharp, witty and enigmatic DI Annika Strandhed (Walker), as she heads up a new specialist Marine Homicide Unit (MHU) with DS Michael McAndrews (Sives), DC Blair Ferguson (Leung) and DS Tyrone Clarke (Roach).
This specialist unit is tasked with investigating the unexplained, sometimes brutal, and seemingly unfathomable murders that wash up in the waterways of Scotland. Throughout the series, Annika makes the audience her confidante by breaking the fourth wall and sharing her wry observations on the case and her life, as she manages her brilliant yet unconventional team, and her equally brilliant yet complex teenage daughter.
