DOWN CEMETERY ROAD: EMMA THOMPSON AND RUTH WILSON LEAD APPLE TV THRILLER

Apple TV+ have announced the commission of new thriller series Down Cemetery Road. Morwenna Banks (Funny Woman, Miss You Already, Slow Horses) serves as lead writer and executive producer.



The series is starring and executive produced by Emma Thompson who plays struggling Oxford private eye Zoë Boehm, alongside Ruth Wilson as Sarah Tucker, who becomes obsessed with the whereabouts of a child she believes to have gone missing.



When a house explodes in a quiet Oxford suburb and a girl disappears in the aftermath, neighbour Sarah Tucker becomes obsessed with finding her and enlists the help of private investigator Zoë Boehm.


Zoë and Sarah suddenly find themselves in a complex conspiracy that reveals that people long believed dead are still among the living, while the living are fast joining the dead.



Apple TV+'s Creative Director, Jay Hunt, said: "Down Cemetery Road has all the hallmarks of Mick Herron’s funny and acerbic writing, and I’m delighted we will be bringing it to life for Apple TV+ with such a stellar cast. Emma Thompson and Ruth Wilson will make it an unmissable companion piece for ‘Slow Horses’ on our service."


Down Cemetery Road joins the recently renewed multi-BAFTA Award-nominated espionage drama Slow Horses on Apple TV+.
