U.K.’s Channel 4 have released the first trailer for their very promising new miniseries Southcliffe, which was written by Tony Grisoni (Red Riding) and directed by Sean Durkin (Martha Marcy May Marlene). The four-part series is set in a fictional English market town devastated by a spate of shootings which take place over a single day. The stellar cast includes Eddie Marsan (The World’s End), Kaya Scodelario (Wuthering Heights), Shirley Henderson (Anna Karenina), Rory Kinnear (Quantum of Solace), Sean Harris (Prometheus), Joe Dempsie (Game of Thrones), Nichola Burley (Donkey Punch) and Anatol Yusef (Boardwalk Empire). This evocative trailer teases something between the Red Riding films and Jane Campion’s recent Top of the Lake miniseries, and with the impressive talent on board here it seems perfectly reasonable to expect something on par with those brilliant crime dramas.
Southcliffe airs later this year in the UK. Watch the first trailer below
