The UK version comes from Kudos, AMC and Channel 4 and made its debut in June 2015, winning several awards that year including the gong for Best British TV Drama Writing at the British Screenwriters’ Awards.

They will also executive produce alongside Derek Wax and Emma Kingsman-Lloyd for Kudos in association with Wild Mercury Productions, and Lars Lundstrom and Henrik Widman for Matador Film. Vicki Delow produces for Kudos.
