Channel 5 has announced another four-part drama commission from Story Films. The Hunted (4 x 1hr) (w/t) will be produced in association with All3Media International and stars Kara Tointon (Mr Selfridge), Allen Leech (Downton Abbey, Bohemian Rhapsody) and Taj Atwal (Line of Duty). The thriller, co-written by Cameron McAllister and Nessah Muthy, follows the story of a young single mother who uncovers the obsessive dark and disturbing past of a wealthy businessman.

Sebastian Cardwell, Deputy Chief Content Officer UK at Paramount said ‘I’m delighted to be working on another project with the talented team at Story Films’.

Sam Tipper-Hale, Executive Producer at Story Films added ‘Cameron and Nessah have written a gripping thriller which questions whether the scars of our past have to determine our future’.

Filming for the series was completed earlier this year on location in Ireland and is expected to air on Channel 5 in 2023
