Apple has announced 'Down Cemetery Road,' a new thriller series starring Emma Thompson and Ruth Wilson. The series is to be adapted from author Mick Herron's novel of the same name from the "Oxford" book series. Herron also wrote the "Slough House" book series on which Apple's popular 'Slow Horses' series is based.

Emma Thompson will play struggling Oxford private eye Zoë Boehm, alongside Ruth Wilson as Sarah Tucker, who becomes obsessed with the whereabouts of a child she believes to have gone missing. Morwenna Banks serves as lead writer and executive producer.

"'Down Cemetery Road' has all the hallmarks of Mick Herron's funny and acerbic writing, and I'm delighted we will be bringing it to life for Apple TV+ with such a stellar cast," said Jay Hunt, creative director, Europe, Apple TV+. "Emma Thompson and Ruth Wilson will make it an unmissable companion piece for 'Slow Horses' on our service."


When a house explodes in a quiet Oxford suburb and a girl disappears in the aftermath, neighbor Sarah Tucker becomes obsessed with finding her and enlists the help of private investigator Zoë Boehm. Zoë and Sarah suddenly find themselves in a complex conspiracy that reveals that people long believed dead are still among the living, while the living are fast joining the dead.

The series is executive produced by Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta and Tom Nash at 60Forty Films, alongside executive producers Banks, Thompson and "Down Cemetery Road" author Mick Herron. Natalie Bailey ("Audrey," "Bay of Fires," "Run") serves as lead director for the series.
