Dublin Murders Trailer
“We think the ones who get away are blessed, lucky. But what if the killed are the lucky ones?” Detective Rob Reilly (Killian Scott, Love/Hate) muses at the beginning of the trailer. So begins a disturbing case that only begets more disturbing imagery — including a blood-covered man engaging in some woodland rite and an ominous shot of a dog — in Dublin Murders, the new Starz series created by Sarah Phelps. Phelps executive produces the series alongside Euston Films’ Kate Harwood and Noemi Spanos, as well as Element Pictures’ Ed Guiney, Veritas Entertainment’s Alan Gasmer and Peter Jaysen, and Saul Dibb, who also serves as lead director.
Based on the novels by Tana French, The Likeness and In the Woods, the series is set in the early years of the new millennium at the height of Ireland’s Celtic Tiger financial boom. But amidst this economic success comes a series of seemingly unrelated murders, investigated by detectives Reilly and his partner, Detective Cassie Maddox (Sarah Greene, Penny Dreadful).
Also starring in this series are Conleth Hill (Game of Thrones) and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (Avengers: Endgame).
