In addition to the STARZ September 2023 lineup, the service has provided Vital Thrills with an early look at six-part dark thriller The Couple Next Door.
Premiering in 2024 following an earlier run on Channel 4 in the UK, The Couple Next Door stars Sam Heughan (Outlander, Suspect), Eleanor Tomlinson (The Outlaws, Poldark), Jessica De Gouw (Pennyworth, Our Man from Jersey) and Alfred Enoch (Tigers, How to Get Away with Murder).
The series, which wrapped filming in Leeds and Belgium earlier this summer, will be available on Channel 4 this fall in the UK and on STARZ in 2024 in the US and Canada.
When Evie (Tomlinson) and Pete (Enoch) move into an upscale neighborhood, they find themselves in a world of curtain twitching and status anxiety.
But soon find friendship in the shape of the couple next door, alpha traffic cop Danny (Heughan) and his wife, glamorous yoga instructor Becka (De Gouw).
As time goes on, these two couples get increasingly close to each other and one fateful night, become sexually entangled in a way that will change their lives forever…
The show is a deliciously dark, psychological drama, exploring the claustrophobia of suburbia and the fallout of chasing your deepest desires.
Directed by Dries Vos (Suspect, Professor T) and written by David Allison (Marcella, Bedlam), the six-part series is an addictive, emotional roller coaster and looks at how we never know what goes on behind closed doors.
Jo McGrath, Walter Iuzzolino, Alison Kee serve as executive producers and the producer is Jen Burnet.
The series is produced by Eagle Eye Drama and distributed worldwide by Beta Film.
