Acclaimed actor Martin Clunes takes the role of former Detective Chief Inspector Colin Sutton, who tenaciously tracked down serial killer Levi Bellfield, in Manhunt, a new drama for ITV/STV.
Written by Ed Whitmore (Silent Witness, Rillington Place, Strike Back) and produced by Buffalo Pictures, Manhunt is the real life story of how the murder of French student, Amelie Delagrange, on Twickenham Green in August 2004 was eventually linked to the murders of Marsha McDonnell in 2003, and the abduction and murder of Milly Dowler in 2002.
With the full co-operation of former DCI Colin Sutton, Manhunt dramatises the hunt to find the killer. The three-part drama follows the detailed and painstaking investigation by the former London Metropolitan police detective and his team, as they dedicated themselves to finding Amelie’s killer, and pursuing links to the other murders.
The producer is Jo Willett, the director is Marc Evans and the executive producer is Philippa Braithwaite.
