ITV To Screen More Above Suspicion
Following the success of the first two serials of Above Suspicion starring Kelly Reilly and Ciarán Hinds, ITV has commissioned Lynda La Plante to write a third instalment due to air in 2011.
The three-part drama, Above Suspicion: Deadly Intent is adapted by Lynda La Plante from her successful fourth novel about rookie detective, Anna Travis
Lynda La Plante says: “DI Travis and DCS Langton are back together to investigate the death of a former colleague and friend of Langton’s in dreadful circumstances. It is very exciting that Kelly and Ciarán are reunited to bring both characters back for a third season with of course the tremendous continued support of Laura Mackie and Peter Fincham at ITV. I hope the audience continues to enjoy my latest adaptation.”
The latest story will revolve around a fatal shooting in a notorious drug dealer’s squat; the murder team quickly identify the victim as an ex-police officer from the drug squad. The team begin the task of trying to connect the presence of their ex-colleague with such desperate and squalid surroundings
Director of ITV Drama Commissioning Laura Mackie says: “I am delighted to be working with La Plante Productions on another run of Above Suspicion which has established itself as a strong returning franchise for ITV1.”
