The Red King, a new six-part crime drama produced by Quay Street Productions and supported by the North East Production Fund will air on Alibi on Wednesday the 24th of April at 9pm.

The series was created and written by Toby Whithouse (Being Human), and stars Anjli Mohindra, Adjoa Andoh, Marc Warren and Jill Halfpenny.

Smart, capable and by the book Grace Narayan (Mohindra) was flying high as an inner-city police sergeant before being forced into a ‘punishment posting’ on the small, antiquated island of St. Jory. Confronted by the forgotten and unsolved case of missing teenage boy Cai, Grace quickly discovers that she must overcome scarce evidence, extraordinary local characters, and the island’s strange cult history to uncover the truth.

The Red King is a character-driven mystery-thriller, that combines the powerful story of a knotty police investigation with chilling, atmospheric folk-horror through the island’s eerie past devotion to a pagan God called the Red King and the cult of the True Way.

The Red King is the last of the North East Production Fund pilots that formed the initial stages of the fund that is managed and delivered by North East Screen on behalf of the North East Screen Industries Partnership. The Production Fund is open to expressions of interest and those interested parties should complete the form on our Production Fund page.
