Irish Director Robert Quinn to Helm Season 3 of BBC’s ‘Death in Paradise’
25 Jun 2013 : By Kevin Cronin
'Death in Paradise' season 3 to be directed by Robert Quinn.
Robert Quinn, the four time IFTA-nominated Irish film and TV director, has signed on to direct season three of BBC’s crime comedy-drama ‘Death in Paradise’, which is filmed on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe.

The series follows English police inspector Richard Poole (Ben Miller) who is joined by sidekick Camille (Sara Martins) in a murder investigation on the fictional Caribbean island of Saint-Marie, despite his hatred of sun, sea and sand.

Created by Robert Thorogood, ‘Death in Paradise’ is a joint UK and French production between the BBC, Red Planet Pictures, Atlantique Productions, Kudos Film and Television and France Télévisions.

Robert Quinn was previously nominated for IFTA awards for Best Director for ‘Rásaí na Gaillimhe" (2009); ‘Cré na Cille’ (2007); Best Single Drama/Drama Serial for ‘Legend’ (2006), which he shared with Shared with producer Clíona Ní Bhuachalla; and ‘Dead Bodies’ (2003).

Other credits include ‘Titanic: Blood and Steel’; Series 4 and 5 of ‘Primeval for ITV/BBC’; ‘Roy’ for Jam Media/CBBC; ‘The Clinic’; ‘Legend’ and ‘Na Cloigne’.

Mr Quinn also wrote and directed ‘Cinegael Paradiso’ which won awards at the Galway Film Fleadh, The Boston Irish Film Festival and the Celtic Film and Television Awards.

The first series of Death in Paradise premiered to almost 6 million viewers and reached 6.1 million viewers at the end of its second series.
