THE CROW GIRL: CASTING ANNOUNCED FOR PARAMOUNT+ ORIGINAL DRAMA

Casting has been announced for new Paramount+ UK contemporary psychological thriller drama The Crow Girl (6x60'), adapted from the novels by Erik Axl Sund



Leading the cast are Eve Myles, Katherine Kelly and Dougray Scott. Also cast are Clara Rugaard as Victoria Burkeman, Victoria Hamilton as Superintendent Verity Pound, Elliot Edusah is DC Mike Dilliston, Chloe Sweetlove plays Madeleine Burkeman and Lee Boardman is David White.



The Crow Girl opens with the discovery of a teenage boy’s body discarded in plain sight. DCI Jeanette Kilburn (Eve Myles) joins forces with psychotherapist Sophia Craven (Katherine Kelly) to hunt the killer despite opposition from her superiors including confidant DI Lou Stanley (Dougray Scott).


The investigation takes them into a dangerous world of historic abuse and murder. Together they uncover a chain of shocking events that have gone overlooked for decades, as well as evidence of police corruption.



As the body count rises and the two women are dragged into the depths of the murders, an intimacy starts to form between them, and so begins a complex, twisted love story. All the while, the killer is inching ever closer to home.


Sebastian Cardwell, Deputy Chief Content Officer, UK said: “We are thrilled to be working with Buccaneer again on the adaption of this gripping novel. Eve, Katherine and Dougray are the perfect leads for this series, and I can’t wait to see them bring these characters to life”.



Tony Wood, Executive Producer and CEO of Buccaneer, said: “We are delighted to bring the best-selling work of Erik Axl Sund to life on screen with THE CROW GIRL for Paramount+. The first few weeks of filming in Bristol have been great, with the excellent cast and crew.”


Screenwriter Milly Thomas said: “I’ve been aching to dive into this story ever since I got my paws on the strange, twisty beast of a novel and to be making this show alongside the fierce talents of Paramount+ and Buccaneer is a real joy. Seeing Eve, Katherine, Dougray and the rest of our incredible cast at work is so exhilarating and I can’t wait to finally share it with audiences.”



More details will be announced in due course.
