Olivia Colman to Star in Crime Drama LANDSCAPERS for HBO, Sky

Olivia Colman to Star in Crime Drama LANDSCAPERS for HBO, Sky
Oscar winner Olivia Colman ("The Favourite", "The Crown") is set to star in HBO and Sky's latest collaboration, the true crime drama "Landscapers". The show has received a series order, and it will be directed by award-winning director Alexander Payne ("The Descendants").

Inspired by real events, the series explores the lives of convicted killers Susan (Colman) and Christopher Edwards, a mild-mannered couple from Mansfield in the UK, who killed Susan's parents and buried them in the back garden of their home. Their crime remained undiscovered for over a decade.

Colman's husband, Ed Sinclair is writing the series, which is based on hours of interviews with the real-life figures behind the crime who have always maintained their innocence.

"Landscapers" is set to start production next year, and will air on Sky Atlantic and Now TV in the UK and on Sky in Germany, Italy, Spain and Ireland as well as HBO in the U.S.

Here's what Colman, who is also producing alongside Sinclair, had to say about the project:
"I love Ed’s scripts, which is just as well as he cooks many of my meals. No, the truth is it’s quite rare to be desperate to play a part on the first reading of a script, but that was the case here. The writing is brave, but subtle and tender too – a joy for any actor.".
