Today, the trailer and further images from Sky Atlantic's new four-part drama Landscapers have been released. Starring Olivia Colman and David Thewlis, the drama launches Tuesday 7th December.
Inspired by real events, this new limited series is created and written by Ed Sinclair in his first television screenplay and sees writer-director Will Sharpe bring his singular vision to the story.
Multi award-winner Olivia Colman plays Susan Edwards with David Thewlis portraying Christopher Edwards.
They're joined by Kate O’Flynn, Dipo Ola, Samuel Anderson, David Hayman, Felicity Montagu and Daniel Rigby.
Landscapers tells a unique love story involving a seemingly ordinary couple who become the focus of an extraordinary investigation when a couple of dead bodies are discovered in the back garden of a house in Nottingham.
Mild-mannered husband and wife Susan and Christopher Edwards have been on the run from reality for over 15 years. When Christopher makes a startling call home to his step-mother, their role in a terrible crime that remained undiscovered for over a decade begins to emerge into the light.
As their relationship is subjected to the glare of a full police investigation, the devoted couple are separated for the first time in their marriage.
As the investigation moves forward, inspired by Susan’s obsession with old Westerns and classic cinema the fantasists cast themselves as Hollywood heroes in narratives of their own invention.
Powered by Susan’s extraordinary imagination, Susan and Chris’s fantasy world provides a much-needed sanctuary from real-world horrors and their own clawing guilt but also threatens to undo them completely.
