CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED MINI-SERIES, ‘RILLINGTON PLACE’ MAKES ITS DOMESTIC DEBUT THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5TH EXCLUSIVELY ON SUNDANCE NOW
TIM ROTH AND SAMANTHA MORTON STAR IN THE BAFTA NOMINATED, THREE-PART SCRIPTED DRAMA
Sundance Now, AMC Networks’ premium video streaming service, will debut RILLINGTON PLACE, the critically acclaimed miniseries starring Tim Roth (Tin Star, Twin Peaks, The Hateful Eight, Rob Roy) and Samantha Morton (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, In America) exclusively in the U.S. Thursday, October 5th, on Sundance Now. The chilling three-part scripted drama, is based on the real-life multiple murders carried out by John Christie (Roth) in Notting Hill in the 1940’s and 50’s.
Presenting each episode from separate viewpoints of Ethel, Timothy and Christie, the miniseries highlights the subsequent tragic miscarriage of justice, which led to Timothy Evans being hanged for a crime he did not commit, contributed towards the abolition of capital punishment in Britain.
Reconciled after living apart for nine years, John Reginald Christie (Roth) and his wife, Ethel (Morton), move into the ground floor flat of 10 Rillington Place, West London. The adjustment to a new life, in a small, rundown property, is particularly felt by Ethel but she strives to please her husband. Ten years on, Timothy Evans and his wife Beryl move into a flat upstairs and fall prey to Christie’s influence and tales. When Beryl becomes pregnant with a second child, already struggling to make ends meet following the birth of baby Geraldine, the Evans allow Christie to help them with deadly consequences for the young newlyweds.
Nico Mirallegro (Hollyoaks) as Timothy Evans and Jodie Comer (Killing Eve, The White Princess, My Mad Fat Diary) as Beryl line-up alongside Roth and Morton.
Rillington Place is made by BBC Studios, the BBC’s commercial production arm, in association with Bandit Television for BBC One. It is directed by Craig Viveiros (And Then There Were None) and written by Ed Whitmore (He Kills Coppers) and Tracey Malone (Born To Kill). Distribution is handled by BBC Worldwide. The deal was negotiated by Aurelie de Troyer, VP of Global Acquisitions and Co-Productions for Sundance Now.
