Apple TV+ announces new thriller: ‘Down Cemetery Road’

Apple TV+ has announced a new thriller series “Down Cemetery Road,” starring and executive produced by Academy Award, BAFTA, Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Emma Thompson (“Good Luck to You, Leo Grande,” “Sense and Sensibility”) and and two-time Olivier Award winner Ruth Wilson (“Luther,” “The Affair,” “His Dark Materials”).

The former plays struggling Oxford private eye Zoë Boehm; the latter plays Sarah Tucker, who becomes obsessed with the whereabouts of a child she believes to have gone missing. Morwenna Banks (“Funny Woman,” “Miss You Already,” “Slow Horses”) serves as lead writer and executive producer.

Here’s how the series is described: 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. Apple TV+ hasn’t announced a release date.
