The British thriller, written and created by Pete McTighe (Doctor Who, A Discovery of Witches), will debut on the Canadian network on Sunday, October 24.

Produced by Cardiff-based Little Door Productions for BBC1, the Wales-shot series tells the story of a chain of events starting when a young brewery boss is found dead. It is directed by Eric Styles (Hidden) and Rebecca Johnson (Honeytrap, The Flash).

The series debuted in the UK in May and stars Laura Fraser (Breaking Bad), Julie Hesmondhalgh (Coronation Street), Eiry Thomas (Keeping Faith), Heledd Gwynn (Ordinary Lies) and Abbie Hern (The Twilight Zone).

Other recent acquisitions by Super Channel include The North Water, the Arctic drama series starring Colin Farrell, Jack O’Connell and Stephen Graham. The show was commissioned by the BBC and produced by UK-Australian prodco See-Saw Films for the BBC and AMC+ in coproduction with Canada’s Rhombus Media.
