The four-part psychological thriller, Dead and Buried written by Colin Bateman was commissioned by BBC Northern Ireland and Virgin Media Television in association with All3Media International.

The series features Annabel Scholey (The Split, The Serial Killer’s Wife, The Salisbury Poisonings) and Colin Morgan (Humans, Belfast, Merlin), Kerri Quinn (Hope Street), Waj Ali (Carnival Row), Owen Roe (Vikings), Niamh Walsh (The Sandman), Micheal Hanna (He'll Have to Go) and Joanne Crawford, (Blue Lights).

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 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.

Outside a supermarket with her young son, Cathy (Annabel Scholey) encounters Michael (Colin 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.

Transmission details will be announced in due course.
