ITV to adapt Graham Norton’s Holding for television

ITV is to adapt Graham Norton’s novel, Holding, for television.

The four-part series will star Conleth Hill (Game of Thrones, Dublin Murders, Vienna Blood) who will take the leading role of local police officer, Sergeant PJ Collins, a gentle mountain of a man, who hides from people and fills his days with comfort food and half-hearted police work. 

When the body of long-lost local legend Tommy Burke is discovered, PJ is called to solve a serious crime for the first time in his career. PJ finally has to connect with the village he has tried hard to avoid.

Norton says: “I am beyond excited to see the story and characters I created being brought to the screen. I love how the brilliant creative team have transformed my novel into something so rich and dramatic. West Cork is ready for its close-up!!”

Set in the insular fictional village of Duneen, West Cork, on the edge of Ireland, a place with its own climate and rhythms, Holding will be directed by award winning actor, director and producer Kathy Burke.

Holding is set to start filming in the summer.
