Stephen Graham is heading to Netflix for new crime procedural Bodies.
The actor – who has starred in everything from the film Boiling Point to BBC One’s Line of Duty and Time, Channel 4’s Help and ITV’s Little Boy Blue (pictured above) – will play Elias Mannix, a central character to the story. Created by Paul Tomalin, the series promises a crime procedural with a twist. Based on the mind-bending graphic novel by Si Spencer, it follows four detectives in four different eras of London who find themselves investigating the same murder – an unidentified body in Whitechapel – uncovering a conspiracy spanning 150 years.
The eight-part series is written by Tomalin and Danusia Samal, with Marco Kreuzpaintner the leader director alongside further episodes helmed by Haolu Wang. Exec-producers include Will Gould and Frith Tiplady, alongside Tomalin and Kreuzpaintner. The series producer is Susie Liggat.
In front of the camera, meanwhile, Graham will be joined by Jacob Fortune-Lloyd (The Queen’s Gambit, See How They Run), Shira Haas (Unorthodox, Shtisel), Amaka Okafor (The Responder, Greatest Days) and Kyle Soller (The Inheritance, Andor) as the quartet of detectives.
