BBC Studios producing Alibi drama
BBC Studios is to produce six-part thriller We Hunt Together for UKTV brand Alibi.
Written by Gaby Hull, the story follows a dark relationship that develops between a former child soldier and a charismatic free-spirit, and the two detectives who attempt to stop them.
Hilary Salmon, Anne Pivcevic and Esther Springer are executive producers for BBC Studios and the show will launch on Alibi in 2020.
“I was so gripped by Gaby’s writing,” said Philippa Collie Cousins, drama commissioner for UKTV.
“We Hunt Together is a fresh, funny and dark rollercoaster ride with filmic undertones that provide echoes of early Hitchcock or Tony Scott's True Romance and takes the genre one step further.
“Hilary Salmon and the truly brilliant team that she has put together are a joy to work with and it's very exciting to be making this show with them.”
We Hunt Together is the second Alibi crime drama to be jointly commissioned by UKTV and BBC Studios Distribution.
Traces was announced in February to be produced by Red Production Company. The show is a six-part drama that charts a murder investigated by the Scottish Institute of Forensic Science and will debut on Alibi later this year.
