Starz today announced the Dublin Murders premiere date and revealed the official trailer and original key art. The STARZ Original series will premiere on Sunday, November 10, 2019, at 8 PM ET/PT.
Adapted from Tana French’s Dublin Murder Squad series of novels, Dublin Murders is a psychological thriller created by Sarah Phelps (Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None, J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy), who executive produced the series alongside Euston Films’ Kate Harwood and Noemi Spanos, as well as Element Pictures’ Ed Guiney, Veritas Entertainment’s Alan Gasmer and Peter Jaysen, and Saul Dibb, who also serves as lead director. Dublin Murders makes its world premiere as part of the Content Canada festival in Toronto, Ontario, today.
Dublin Murders will debut the first of its eight episodes on STARZ on Sunday, November 10, 2019, at 8 PM ET/PT, followed by successive episodes each week. Simultaneously, the series will debut on the STARZ app, STARZ On Demand and STARZPLAY across Europe and Latin America.
Set during the height of the Celtic Tiger financial boom of the millennium, Dublin Murders focuses on two murder investigations led by ambitious and charismatic detectives Rob Reilly (Killian Scott of The Commuter, Ripper Street) and Cassie Maddox (Sarah Greene of Penny Dreadful, Ransom). The victims are seemingly unrelated, but as audiences will discover, they are knitted together by powerful shared themes – the macabre “red in tooth and claw” elements of both stories and their heart-thumping psychological thriller qualities.
The predominantly Irish cast also includes Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (Avengers: Endgame) as Frank supported by Moe Dunford (Vikings) as Sam, Leah McNamara (Vikings) as Rosalind, Ian Kenny (Solo: A Star Wars Story) as Phelan, Eugene O’Hare (The Fall) as Quigley, Jonny Holden (Women on the Verge) as Damien, Conleth Hill (Game of Thrones) as O Kelly and Peter McDonald (The Last Kingdom) as Jonathan.
