Best-selling author Harlan Coben has created new crime series The Five, which will arrive on Sky 1 on Friday 15th April 2016.
Produced by Red Production Company (Happy Valley, Last Tango in Halifax), The Five is described as a ‘gripping new original crime thriller’. The 10-part series stars Tom Cullen (Downton Abbey) as Mark Wells, O-T Fagbenle (Looking) as Detective Danny Kenwood, Lee Ingleby (Inspector George Gently) as Slade Fletcher and Sarah Solemani (Bad Education) as Dr Pru Carew.
The Five follows the story of a group of friends haunted by the disappearance, some years earlier, of the younger brother of one of the group while he was in their care. When the missing boy’s DNA turns up at the scene of a murder, the friends are forced to revisit their past and ask the question: is he still alive?
The series also stars Michael Maloney (The White Queen), Geraldine James (Utopia), Hannah Arterton (Walking on Sunshine), Honeysuckle Weeks (Foyle’s War) and Lee Boardman (Jack the Giant Slayer). The Five is written by Danny Brocklehurst (Shameless, The Driver) and directed by Mark Tonderai (Hush, Whisper of Fear).
