“I never wanted to do a sequel to The Five – that story has now been told – but rather start over and bring a whole new crime drama to the screen. Working with Nicola and Sky again was key to ensuring that was done. creatively, Le Four comes to life the way we envisioned it. “
It is produced by RED Production Company. They are a group behind some of the most critically acclaimed shows of recent years, including Happy Valley, Last Tango in Halifax and Queer As Folk.
