Paramount+Paramount+ continues to impact the UK production landscape as another original drama commission for the new streamer gets up and running this week. 

The Burning Girls is  a 6 x 60 adaptation of the novel by CJ Tudor about an unconventional, single-parent vicar and her teenage daughter Flo, who arrive in the village of Chapel Croft hoping for a fresh start.

However, they soon find a community full of deep-rooted myths, dark secrets and conspiracies. And then Flo starts to see ghosts of burning girls… 

Buccaneer Media is producing the series with acclaimed Swedish writer Hans Rosenfeldt having adapted the book; he previously worked with the prodco on Marcella. The exec producers of The Burning Girls are Tudor, Rosenfeldt, Richard Tulk-Hart, Tony Wood and Anna Burns. 

Buccaneer is also busy on the second series of Irvine Welsh’s Crime for ITVX and Britbox, now deep into prep in Scotland. The company is also developing Welsh’s The Blade Artist.  

Paramount+ has quickly forged ahead with original drama commissions in the UK, with The Chemistry Of Death and a Sexy Beast prequel series both currently in production.
