The BBC has ordered a new drama from the writers of BBC and Starz series The Missing.
The U.K. public broadcaster has ordered four hourlong episodes of One of Us from Harry and Jack Williams. The show will be produced for flagship network BBC One by BBC Drama Production through BBC Scotland in association with the Williams’ Two Brothers Pictures.
One of Us is described as a modern thriller set in the highlands of Scotland and Edinburgh. “A horrific double murder rocks the lives of two families living side by side in isolated rural Scotland,” according to a show description. “But instead of focusing on the investigation, One of Us explores the fallout for the grieving relatives and the dark consequences that threaten to shatter their lives.”
The BBC promises a “morality tale, which will keep the audience guessing until its devastating climax.”
“We’re excited to be telling a modern-day parable that explores big themes and ideas through the lens of a very personal character-driven story,” the Williams brothers said.
BBC One controller Charlotte Moore and BBC drama commissioning controller Ben Stephenson ordered the show.
