Neve Kelly is dead. Understandably, she’s scared and confused by this new (non) existence, but moreover, when she realises she has been murdered, she’s furious. That’s the starting point for The Rising, Sky’s new supernatural drama – and a new trailer gives us a first look at it.
The eight-part series is the first produced entirely in-house from Sky Studios, Sky’s production and development arm, who are working with executive producer Julian Stevens, producer of The Fall (BBC Two) and Informer (BBC Two). It stars Clara Rugaard (I Am Mother) as Neve, Nenda Neururer (A Brief History of Struggle) as the irreverent Alex Wyatt, who has recently returned to the area after three years away, and Solly McLeod (Boxing Day) as Joseph Wyatt, Alex’s cousin and Neve’s longstanding boyfriend. Emily Taaffe (Rare Beasts), Alex Lanipekun (Spooks) and Robyn Cara (Ackley Bridge) are also among the cast.
Determined to find her killer and get justice, Neve takes advantage of her new supernatural abilities to go where the police can’t and investigate her own death. In doing so, she uncovers deeply buried secrets and is forced to re-examine everything about her life and the people she cared about.
Discover what she finds out on 11th March, when the series premieres on Sky Max and NOW. Here’s the trailer:
