Loch Ness: New British Crime Drama on Acorn TV

Acorn TV Original Series and New British Crime Drama: LOCH NESS begins on Monday, June 19, 2017.

LOCH NESS (aka The Loch in the UK), an atmospheric murder mystery thriller starring Laura Fraser (Breaking Bad, The Missing) and Siobhan Finneran (Happy Valley, Downton Abbey), will be shown as a 6 part series. The beautiful, haunting shores of Scotland’s most iconic loch is the stunning backdrop for the new six-part crime drama written by Stephen Brady (Fortitude, Vera) and produced by ITV Studios for ITV in the UK. Shortly after its ITV broadcast, LOCH NESS will premiere in the U.S. beginning on consecutive Mondays, starting June 19, 2017 through the finale on July 24.

In a community nourished and sustained by myth and bordered by untamed nature, the search for a serial killer becomes a matter of life and death for local detective Annie Redford (Laura Fraser). When the body of local man Niall Swift is found at the foot of Carn Mohr Mountain and an isolated human heart on the loch shore, the town’s normality is shattered and the nightmare begins. Set against a backdrop of rolling Highlands and the vast loch, the landscape becomes a character in its own right, adding a haunting depth to the community’s plight.

Within the tightly knit town, a sense of horror begins to dawn as the villagers realize that there is more than one kind of monster in their midst. The series also stars Siobhan Finneran, John Sessions (Florence Foster Jenkins), Don Gilet (Brief Encounters), Gray O'Brien (Coronation Street) and William Ash (The Tunnel).
