New photos have been released ahead of the launch of the long-awaited crime drama Landscapers.
Featuring Oscar winning actress Olivia Colman, the soon-to-be-aired series dramatises the real-life story of Susan and Christopher Edwards, a Nottinghamshire couple who murdered her parents and covered up the deaths for 15 years.
In 2013, the bodies of a man and a woman were discovered buried in the garden of a house on the outskirts of Mansfield, in Forest Town.
The remains turned out to be those of Patricia Wycherley, 63, and her 85-year-old husband William, whose neighbours thought had packed up and left to go travelling.
In fact, they had been shot and killed by their daughter and son-in-law Susan and Christopher Edwards, their deaths covered up for years in a stranger-than-fiction story that is now being dramatised in new four-part Sky Original limited series Landscapers.
It will be starring Oscar-winner Olivia Colman and David Thewlis, with the screenplay written by Colman’s husband Ed Sinclair.
Speaking about her husband’s interest about the historic case, the actress added: “He was fascinated by it.
“Ed had described this amazing thing he’d read in The Guardian initially – and all the memorabilia.
“He saw it very sympathetically from Susan’s point of view and was interested in approaching everything from the point of view of someone who had committed a crime which was unusual.”
Landscapers premieres on Sky Atlantic and NOW on Tuesday (December 7).
