Apple TV+ and producers of Slow Horses are teaming up on another series.

Emma Thompson and Ruth Wilson will star in Down Cemetery Road, a thriller based on a novel by Mick Herron, whose Slough House spy series is the source material for Slow Horses. The new project is the third Apple TV+ series from producer 60Forty Films, which is also behind Slow Horses — which was renewed for a fifth season earlier this year — and Hijack. Morwenna Banks, who has penned several episodes of Slow Horses, will be the lead writer.

Down Cemetery Road kicks off with a house exploding in a quiet Oxford suburb and a girl disappearing in the aftermath. Sarah Tucker (Wilson, The Affair), who lives nearby, becomes obsessed with finding the girl and enlists the help of private investigator Zoë Boehm (Oscar and Emmy winner Thompson). They find themselves in a complex conspiracy that reveals that people long believed dead are still among the living, while the living are fast joining the dead.

Down Cemetery Road has all the hallmarks of Mick Herron’s funny and acerbic writing, and I’m delighted we will be bringing it to life for Apple TV+ with such a stellar cast,” said Jay Hunt, creative director, Europe, for Apple TV+. “Emma Thompson and Ruth Wilson will make it an unmissable companion piece for Slow Horses on our service.”

Banks, Thompson and Herron executive produce with 60Forty Films’ Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta and Tom Nash. Natalie Bailey (HBO’s Run and Avenue 5) will be the lead director.

Thompson is repped by Hamilton Hodell and CAA. Wilson also repped by Hamilton Hodell and CAA. Banks is with The Agency.
