Produced by New Pictures in association with all3media international, White House Farm stars Freddie Fox, Mark Addy, Stephen Graham, Gemma Whelan, Alfie Allen and Cressida Bonas. It is written by Kris Mrksa (Requiem, The Slap) and Giula Sandler (Nowhere Boys), and directed by BAFTA nominee Paul Whittington (The Moorside, Cilla). The six-part drama series centers on the real-life murder of three generations of one family at an isolated farmhouse in 1985 and draws from extensive research, interviews and published accounts of the tragedy. It is slated to debut on ITV in the U.K. in 2020.
Louise Pedersen, CEO at all3media international, said: “In White House Farm, Willow Grylls and the New Pictures team have produced a compelling true-crime drama that takes an in-depth look at what happened on one fateful night. It focuses on not only the crime itself and the subsequent police investigation but also the devastating emotional impact of the tragedy, all informed by extensive research and interviews with those closest to the case. Crime stories have a global resonance and we are delighted that a number of major international broadcasters including HBO Max and Canal+ will be airing the series.”
