Sky reveals an exclusive first look imagesof Landscapers; an exhilarating and darkly funny exploration of love and fantasy starring Olivia Colman and David Thewlis. Inspired by real events, the four-part Sky Original limited series is created and written by Ed Sinclair in his first television screenplay and sees writer-director Will Sharpe (The Electrical Life of Louis Wain, Flowers) bring his singular vision to the story. Landscapers is the latest project from SISTER for Sky Studios and HBO after the multi-Emmy and BAFTA award-winning hit Chernobyl.

Multi award-winner Olivia Colman (The Favourite, The Crown) plays Susan Edwards with David Thewlis (I’m Thinking Of Ending Things, Fargo) portraying Christopher Edwards.

Colman and Thewlis are joined by Kate O’Flynn (Bridget Jones’s Baby), Dipo Ola (We Hunt Together), Samuel Anderson (The History Boys), David Hayman (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas), Felicity Montagu (I’m Alan Partridge) and Daniel Rigby (Eric and Ernie, Flowers).

Landscapers tells a unique love story involving a seemingly ordinary couple who become the focus of an extraordinary investigation when a couple of dead bodies are discovered in the back garden of a house in Nottingham.

Mild-mannered husband and wife Susan (Colman) and Christopher Edwards (Thewlis) have been on the run from reality for over 15 years. When Christopher makes a startling call home to his step-mother, their role in a terrible crime that remained undiscovered for over a decade begins to emerge into the light. As their relationship is subjected to the glare of a full police investigation, the devoted couple are separated for the first time in their marriage.​

Landscapers will air on Sky Atlantic and streaming service NOW later this year. NBCUniversal Global Distribution will handle international sales of the series on behalf of Sky Studios.
