Acorn TV General Manager Matthew Graham announced today that the streaming service has acquired exclusive North American rights to the new British drama Deadwater Fell, which will make its US Premiere as an Acorn TV Original in April 2020.

The ensemble cast includes David Tennant (Broadchurch, Doctor Who, Good Omens), Cush Jumbo (The Good Fight, The Good Wife, Vera), Matthew McNulty (Versailles, Cleaning Up, The Terror), and Anna Madeley (Patrick Melrose, The Crown, Utopia).

Set in a small Scottish community, the four-part drama centers on the murder of a seemingly perfect and happy family by someone they know and trust. The community soon gets torn apart by mistrust and suspicion, and those closest to the family begin to question everything they thought they knew about their friends.

Deadwater Fell examines in unflinching detail the nature of female friendship and the harmful, entrenched gender stereotypes and conformity that can lead to the most devastating consequences. Laying bare the fragility of trust and the corrosive nature of lies, the series demonstrates that even the closest of friends all have their secrets.

A production of Kudos (Humans, Utopia, Tin Star), Deadwater Fell is created and written by Daisy Coulam (Grantchester, Humans), directed by Lynsey Miller (The Boy with the Topknot, Eve), and produced by Caroline Levy (Beecham House, Hooten & The Lady, The Mill). The Executive Producers are Emma Kingsman-Lloyd (Grantchester, Humans), Karen Wilson (Utopia, The Tunnel), Daisy Coulam, and David Tennant.
