Rellik (BBC-1-Cinemax 2017 Richard Dormer, Jodi Balfour)



Rellik BBC RIchard Dormer

What makes a serial killer? Or the cop who is compelled to relentlessly track them down? What are the events that form a person into the human being they will become – killer or cop?

Rellik (killer spelled backwards) is a structural conceit which turns the serial killer story on its head. The perpetrator is caught before the drama moves backwards in time to the very beginning – the crime itself and ultimately the killer. The search for the killer provides the backbone of the story but the damaged and disfigured Met detective, Gabriel Markham, played by Richard Dormer (Game of Thrones, Fortitude), is at its centre. Enigmatic, unrelenting and charismatic, Gabriel is propelled in an obsessive hunt for a serial killer who left a mark on him both physically and mentally. Gabriel’s partner is Elaine, played by Jodi Balfour (The Crown, Bomb Girls, Quarry). She is a bright and intense detective, eager to please.

From the BBC press release… Harry and Jack Williams, Writers and Executive Producers for Two Brothers Pictures, said: “We are really pleased to be working with the BBC again and to be partnering with Cinemax for the first time. Rellik is a dark thriller tonally very different to anything we’ve done before and we’re looking forward to bringing it to the screen”

Willow Grylls, Executive Producer for New Pictures, says: “We are delighted to be working with the brilliant Harry and Jack Williams and Two Brothers Pictures on this bold, original and twisting thriller after our successful collaboration of two series of The Missing.”
