10 Mar 2014 : Aisling Newton
Irish actor James Nesbitt has been cast in the new BBC1 drama series ‘The Missing’.

‘The Missing’, made by New Pictures and Company Pictures in association with Two Brothers Pictures and Playground, will air on US channel Starz as well as BBC1 later this year. Filming has started in Brussels for the series, which also stars Frances O’Connor (Mister Selfridge), Jason Flemyng (X-Men: First Class), Ken Scott (The Hobbit), Arsher Ali (Four Lions) and French actor Tcheky Karyo (Goldeneye).

The eight-part series is centred on the search for missing child Oliver, who vanishes while on holidays in France, and follows the relationship of Tony (Nesbitt) and his wife Emily (O’Connor). Karyo will play Julien, a French detective who leads the police investigation into Oliver's disappearance.

Written by Harry and Jack Williams and directed by Tom Shankland (Ripper Street), ‘The Missing’ is told simultaneously over two time frames and is set in two countries. Chris Clough will serve as the series producer and Charlie Pattinson, Willow Grylls, Polly Hill, John York & Harry and Jack Williams serving as executive producers.

York said: “It's rare to find a new take on the detective drama, so it's a real pleasure to be involved with a project that both embraces the genre while finding incredibly exciting new ways to play with it. Great writing and a fantastic cast add up to something very special.”
