From legendary writer Paul Abbott (Shameless [UK], State of Play) comes an “exhilarating, ballsy, and…filthily funny” (The Independent, UK) police comedy-drama with fierce female characters and a shrewd, irreverent take on crime. Charismatic DI Vivienne Deering (Joanna Scanlan, Notes on a Scandal) leads an ace but unorthodox squad that tackles Manchester’s most gruesome and off-the-wall crimes, including drug dealers, neo-Nazis, and black-market organ sellers. When strong-willed DC Dinah Kowalska (Elaine Cassidy, Acceptable Risk) connects a body at the morgue to a group of murdered girls with Down’s syndrome, Viv and her team begin the hunt for a serial killer. What they uncover could leave even the most seasoned officers reeling. Loaded with dark humor and shocking plot twists, this award-winning series also stars Alexandra Roach (Iron Lady, Anna Karenina), Will Mellor (Broadchurch), Paul Ritter (Vera), and Colin Salmon (Arrow).
A mayoral debate goes tragically awry when a deadly shooter enters the building. Viv and the team must race to catch the killer and try to understand what motivates his attempted assassination of an underdog mayoral candidate.
