This new Emma Thompson project is a far cry from "Nanny McPhee"!

Today, Apple TV+ announced new thriller series “Down Cemetery Road,” starring and executive produced by Academy Award, BAFTA, Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Emma Thompson (“Good Luck to You, Leo Grande,” “Sense and Sensibility”) who plays struggling Oxford private eye Zoë Boehm, alongside Golden Globe and two-time Olivier Award winner Ruth Wilson (“Luther,” “The Affair,” “His Dark Materials”) as Sarah Tucker, who becomes obsessed with the whereabouts of a child she believes to have gone missing. Morwenna Banks (“Funny Woman,” “Miss You Already,” “Slow Horses”) serves as lead writer and executive producer.

“‘Down Cemetery Road’ has all the hallmarks of Mick Herron’s funny and acerbic writing, and I’m delighted we will be bringing it to life for Apple TV+ with such a stellar cast,” said Jay Hunt, creative director, Europe, Apple TV+. “Emma Thompson and Ruth Wilson will make it an unmissable companion piece for ‘Slow Horses’ on our service.”

When a house explodes in a quiet Oxford suburb and a girl disappears in the aftermath, neighbor Sarah Tucker becomes obsessed with finding her and enlists the help of private investigator Zoë Boehm. Zoë and Sarah suddenly find themselves in a complex conspiracy that reveals that people long believed dead are still among the living, while the living are fast joining the dead.

The series is executive produced by Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta and Tom Nash at 60Forty Films, alongside executive producers Banks, Thompson and “Down Cemetery Road” author Mick Herron. Natalie Bailey (“Audrey,” “Bay of Fires,” “Run”) serves as lead director for the series.

“Down Cemetery Road” joins the recently renewed multi-BAFTA Award-nominated espionage drama “Slow Horses” on Apple TV+. “Slow Horses,” on which Banks also wrote, is based on Herron’s celebrated “Slough House” book series and stars Academy Award winner Gary Oldman.
