Created and written by Daisy Coulam (Grantchester), Deadwater Fell centers on a Scottish community that is torn apart by mistrust and suspicion when a happy family is murdered by someone they know and trust. Tennant, the Good Omens and Doctor Who actor, becomes a prime suspect in the investigation.
Don Klees, senior vice president of programming for Acorn TV, said: “Featuring an incredible ensemble cast led by David Tennant and Cush Jumbo, Deadwater Fell is an excellent addition to our Acorn TV Original lineup with its beautiful Scottish setting and a gripping script.”
Tennant, Coulam, Emma Kingsman-Lloyd (Humans) and Karen Wilson (Utopia) executive produced the show, while Caroline Levy (Beecham House) was the producer.
