Inishowen Mysteries Being Adapted as Canadian-Irish Miniseries


Neshama Entertainment is working with Zanzibar Films to adapt Andrea Carter’s book series The Inishowen Mysteries into a scripted miniseries.

The Inishowen Mysteries follows solicitor Benedicta “Ben” O’Keefe, who runs the northerly-most law practice in Ireland. Serving as a solicitor for the Inishowen area launches Ben into a world of mysteries and crime, and as she works alongside the community, she realizes she can’t outrun her past or the guilt that consumes her. The sixth novel in the Inishowen series, Death Writes, was published last year.

The miniseries will be created as a Canada-Ireland co-production with Neshama Entertainment, led by Arnie Zipursky as president and CEO; Edwina Forkin, founder of Zanzibar Films; and Ralph Christians (Jack Taylor, Operation Napoleon).

“We’re excited to be teaming up with Edwina and Ralph on Andrea Carter’s popular Inishowen book series,” said Zipursky. “From its captivating blend of legal intrigue and thrilling crime to its otherworldly Irish landscape, Inishowen promises to be a bold new drama series. We’re thrilled to have such strong creative partners along for the ride.”
