Landscapers is created and written by Colman’s husband Ed Sinclair, who will also serve as an executive producer alongside Colman through their South of the River Pictures. It is based on extensive research, hours of interviews and direct access to the accused, who have always protested their innocence of murder.

“Inspired by real events, the series tells a unique love story involving Chris and Susan Edwards, a seemingly ordinary British couple who become the focus of an extraordinary investigation when two dead bodies are discovered in the back garden of a house in Nottingham,” reads the synopsis.

The series will also star Kate O’ Flynn (Bridget Jones’s Baby), Dipo Ola (We Hunt Together), Samuel Anderson (The History Boys), David Hayman (The Boy in the Striped Pajamas), Felicity Montagu (I’m Alan Partridge), and Daniel Rigby (Eric and Ernie, Flowers).
