‘Ragdoll’: Lucy Hale, Henry Lloyd-Hughes & Thalissa Teixeira To Star In Thriller For Alibi & AMC
‘Ragdoll‘, a new modern-day Faustian thriller for UKTV’s Alibi and AMC Networks has announced Lucy Hale, Henry Lloyd-Hughes & Thalissa Teixeira will lead the cast for the drama.
Based on the novel by Daniel Cole, the series sees Lloyd-Hughes play newly reinstated DS Nathan Rose, Teixeira as DI Emily Baxter, his boss and best friend, and Hale plays DC Lake Edmunds, the unit’s new recruit. The three officers are assigned to a shocking new case, nicknamed The Ragdoll. The “Ragdoll Killer” taunts the police by sending them a list of his next victims, with Rose’s name at the very end. And with those victims to protect, our heroes soon come under intense public scrutiny. A gruesomely imaginative serial killer thriller, ‘Ragdoll’ also captures the fascinating but flawed friends struggling with the consequences of institutionalisation and trauma.
Henry Lloyd-Hughes can currently be seen starring in Netflix’s ‘The Irregulars’, in which he plays a very different imagining of the iconic character ‘Sherlock Holmes.’ Prior to this, he became a familiar face across the world in season two of ‘Killing Eve’ as Aaron Peel, a sociopathic crypto tech millionaire.
Thalissa Teixeira is known for television roles including Sky’s ‘Two Weeks To Live’, BBC’s ‘Trigonometry’ and ‘The Musketeers’. She also stars in ITV’s new psychological thriller ‘Too Close’, opposite Emily Watson and Denise Gough, and Channel 5’s series ‘Anne Boleyn’ opposite Jodie Turner-Smith.
Lucy Hale first dominated the television screens in Freeform’s wildly popular series ‘Pretty Little Liars’, and has gone on to capture the hearts of big- and small- screen enthusiasts in projects such as Blumhouse’s ‘Fantasy Island’, the CW’s ‘Katy Keene’ and Warner Bros.’ ‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2’.
The series, produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd for UKTV’s Alibi and AMC Networks in the US, begins filming today in London. Freddy Syborn (‘Ms Marvel’, ‘Bad Education’) is spearheading the adaptation of the six-part, darkly witted thriller. ‘Ragdoll’ will be directed by Toby MacDonald (‘Old Boys’, ‘The Duchess’) and Niall MacCormick (‘The Victim’, ‘The Long Walk to Finchley’).
‘Ragdoll‘ is set to premiere in late 2021 on Alibi in the UK and AMC in the USA.
