THEY ARE NOT DONE WITH THEIR PAST…
Netflix subscribers in USA and Canada will be able to watch television drama, Harlan Coben’s The Five, produced by award-winning RED Production Company. Netflix has acquired the rights to the ten part crime thriller for the USA and Canadian territory strand of the popular streaming service, opening up the series to a breadth of new audiences.
Renowned for his addictive storytelling full of twists and turns, Harlan Coben’s The Five, was created by the number one international best-selling author as his first original story for television. Produced by RED Production Company (Happy Valley, Last Tango in Halifax), Harlan Coben’s The Five is brought to life by the lead writer on the series, BAFTA® Award winning Danny Brocklehurst.
Distributed by STUDIOCANAL, this roller-coaster thriller follows a group of friends who are haunted by the disappearance of one of their younger brothers twenty years earlier, while he was in their care. The group is forced to revisit the past when the missing boy’s DNA turns up at the scene of a murder. Could he really still be alive? If so, why has he come back? And how is he linked to this murder? Only one thing is certain: the lives of these four friends are about to be turned upside down as they desperately search for the truth. And redemption.
The series stars a raft of talent including; Tom Cullen (Downton Abbey) as Mark Wells, O-T Fagbenle (Handmaid’s Tale) as Detective Danny Kenwood, Lee Ingleby (Harry Potter and The Prisoner Of Azkaban) as Slade Fletcher and Sarah Solemani (Bridget Jones’s Baby) as Dr Pru Carew. Harlan Coben’s The Five also stars Michael Maloney (Paranoid), Geraldine James (Utopia), Hannah Arterton (Walking on Sunshine), Honeysuckle Weeks (Foyle’s War) and Lee Boardman (Da Vinci’s Demons).
Harlan Coben commented, “I’m so excited that the Americans and Canadians will now be able to binge-watch The Five on Netflix. The fantastic buzz for our crime drama – especially the twist ending – has been fun to watch.”
The show first aired on Sky One last year and was an instant hit with audiences. Boyd Hilton of Heat declared the show to be ‘absolutely riveting from the very start,’ while Michael Hogan of the Daily Telegraph described Harlan Coben’s first original story for television as ‘a compelling thriller with a killer premise.’
Directed by Mark Tonderai (Gotham, Time After Time), Harlan Coben’s The Five will be available to stream on Netflix in USA and Canada from the 15th September.
