New Channel 4 Drama 

James NesbittJames Nesbitt 







James Nesbitt, Richard E Grant, and Joely Richardson will star in a new crime thriller for Channel 4.

The eight-part series will also feature Outlander actor Sam Heughan, Bridgerton’s Ben Miller and Shameless actress Anne-Marie Duff.  

The drama, which has a working title of Suspect, is an adaptation of a Danish series and follows veteran detective Danny Frater (Nesbitt), who turns up at a hospital mortuary for what he thinks is a routine ID check on a young woman’s body, and gets a devastating shock when the corpse turns out to be his estranged daughter. 

Richardson will play Jackie, the pathologist who carries out the post mortem on Christina’s body, while Miller plays Richard, Danny’s boss. 

The show has been written and adapted by Before We Die’s Matt Baker and will be directed by Dries Vos. 

Caroline Hollick, head of drama at Channel 4, said: “I am absolutely delighted to welcome James Nesbitt back to Channel 4 to take the lead in this gripping, visceral thriller. 

It’s a testament to James’ star power and Matt’s gripping scripts that Suspect (w/t) has attracted such a sensationally stellar ensemble cast.” 

The series will be filmed in the autumn.
