“YOU start thinking, ‘Is this going to be about small town cops investigating a brutal murder?
‘Or is it going to be something more than that?’
“And it turns out to be something far more than that.”
Robert Glenister talking to me about new eight-part ITV drama Paranoid, made by the Red Production Company.
A truly gripping story filmed in Cheshire and Germany starting at 9pm this Thursday (Sept 22).
Starring Robert as veteran cop Bobby Day, Indira Varma and Dino Fetscher as police colleagues Nina Suresh and Alec Wayfield, Neil Stuke as their boss Michael Niles and Lesley Sharp as murder eyewitness Lucy Cannonbury.
Written by Bill Gallagher, Paranoid begins with a shocking killing in a children’s playground.
Then unfolds layer by layer into a much wider story that had me counting the days until I could read the eighth and final script.
Translated by cast and crew into a top class thriller on screen.
I could say much more about Paranoid but perhaps best for you to simply watch and discover for yourselves.
