AMC, UKTV play with Ragdoll adaptation

UKTV and US network AMC have jointly commissioned a drama series about a serial killer based on Daniel Cole novel Ragdoll.

Produced by Sid Gentle Films, 6×60’ series Ragdoll follows three London Metropolitan Police officers as they attempt to catch the eponymous serial killer.

The writing team is led by Freddy Syborn (Ms Marvel, Bad Education), while the cast will be announced at a later date.

Ragdoll is set to air on AMC in the US and on UKTV crime net Alibi later this year, with filming starting in spring around London.

It was commissioned for Alibi by UKTV commissioning editor for drama Philippa Collie Cousins, head of scripted Pete Thornton and Alibi channel director Emma Ayech.

Dan McDermott, AMC president of original programming and co-president, and Kristin Jones, exec VP of international programming, commissioned the show for the US broadcaster.

Collie Cousins said: “Ragdoll is a dystopian, mesmerising, wickedly funny piece of hard-boiled detective screen fiction. It invites the audience into a timeless world of crime thriller, sending us on a rollercoaster ride with flawed, compelling Rose, his best friend/cop partner Baxter and rookie Edmunds.”
