BBC Secures Gripping Mystery Thriller "The Gone" for BBC Four and iPlayer

The BBC has made a compelling addition to its lineup with the acquisition of the mystery thriller series "The Gone," featuring an ensemble cast led by Richard Flood of "Grey's Anatomy" fame and Acushla-Tara Kupe from "Mr.Corman." The six-part drama, obtained from Red Arrow Studios International, is set to captivate audiences on BBC Four and iPlayer.

"The Gone" delves into the gripping narrative of Irish detective Theo Richter, portrayed by Richard Flood, who joins forces with Kiwi detective Diana Huia, played by Acushla-Tara Kupe. The duo embarks on a challenging investigation when a young Irish couple vanishes from a rural New Zealand town. However, their task is complicated by the community's mounting apprehension that the disappearances may be linked to a series of historical murders, sending shockwaves through the entire town.

Joining Flood and Kupe in this suspenseful journey are esteemed actors including Manu Bennett from "The Hobbit," Michelle Fairley known for "Game of Thrones" and "Gangs of London," and Carolyn Bracken from "You are Not My Mother" and "Dublin Murders."

Sue Deeks, Head of BBC Programme Acquisition, expressed enthusiasm for the acquisition, praising the series' atmospheric setting amidst the picturesque landscapes of New Zealand. She remarked, "Set amongst the beautiful New Zealand landscape, The Gone is an atmospheric and suspenseful mystery thriller, guaranteed to keep viewers guessing until the very end."

Developed by Michael Bennett, Yvonne Donohoe, and Anna McPartlin, "The Gone" is helmed by directors Peter Burger and Hannah Quinn. The series is a collaborative effort between KĊtare Productions, Keeper Pictures, and Kingfisher Films, in association with Southern Light Films (New Zealand), with Red Arrow Studios International handling international distribution.

With its blend of intrigue, suspense, and an ensemble cast of talented performers, "The Gone" promises to offer viewers a riveting and immersive television experience. As anticipation builds for its debut on BBC Four and iPlayer, audiences can look forward to being drawn into a world of mystery and suspense unlike any other.
