UK crime drama channel Alibi has joined forced with US cable service AMC for a new, six-part series.
Based on the novel by Daniel Cole, the story revolves around the murder of six people whose bodies have been dismembered and sewn into the shape of one grotesque body.
Deadline says: “Assigned to the shocking case are DS Nathan Rose, recently reinstated to the London Met; his best friend and boss, DI Emily Baxter; and the unit’s new recruit, DC Lake Edmunds.
“The ‘Ragdoll Killer’ taunts the police by sending them a list of his next victims, with Rose’s name at the very end. With the victims to protect, our heroes soon come under intense public scrutiny.”
Production company, Sid Gentle Films, confirmed that production had started in London.
The cast includes Henry Lloyd-Hughes and Thalissa Teixeira, who we last saw in ITV’s Too Close.
