Olivia Colman‘s new role is killer, literally.
The Emmy-Award winning actress has returned to TV in an all-new HBO limited series, but this time, there’s no crown involved. Colman is starring in Landscapers, a love-story-turned-true crime terror tale based on real events set in Nottingham, England, alongside Emmy nominee David Thewlis. The four-episode series, directed by Will Sharpe and executive produced by Colman herself, is set to premiere on December 9.
Landscapers follows Chris and Susan Edwards (Thewlis and Colman, respectively), a couple who appear to be ordinary, but to the public’s surprise, may have some skeletons in their closet or, rather, in their backyard.
When two dead bodies are discovered in a garden, Chris and Susan become the focus of a murder investigation. It seems as though this couple may have “royally” messed up. (Will we ever stop making puns about Colman’s tenure as Queen Elizabeth II? No, no we won’t.)
