In a thrilling announcement today, the BBC, in collaboration with Moonage Pictures (known for hits like “The Pursuit of Love” and “Obsession”), has revealed a tantalising glimpse into the upcoming series “A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder,” adapted from Holly Jackson’s bestselling novels. Set to grace screens on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer later this year, this highly anticipated six-part series promises to captivate audiences with its riveting storyline and stellar cast.

Headlining the ensemble is Emma Myers, taking on the role of Wednesday, alongside the esteemed Anna Maxwell Martin (renowned for her roles in “Motherland” and “A Spy Among Friends”), Gary Beadle (“Rye Lane,” “Small Axe”), Mathew Baynton (“Ghosts,” “Wonka”), and newcomer Zain Iqbal. Adding to the international flavour, “A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder” is a co-production with ZDFneo for the German audience.

The series delves into the perplexing case of Andie Bell, a schoolgirl brutally murdered five years ago by her boyfriend, Sal Singh. The authorities have long closed the case, firmly believing in Singh’s guilt, a sentiment echoed throughout the town. However, Pip Fitz-Amobi, portrayed by the tenacious Emma Myers, refuses to accept the easy explanation. With unwavering determination, Pip embarks on a quest to uncover the truth. If Sal Singh isn’t the killer, then who is? And why are they desperate to silence Pip?
