Channel 5’s original crime drama Suspects will return in the autumn for a second series and has been recommissioned for 2015.
The edgy, unscripted drama is produced by Newman Street and co-created and executive-produced by Paul Marquess.
Suspects takes a different approach to crime drama with actors Fay Riipley, Damien Molony and Clare-Hope Ashitey improvising the dialogue from a tightly-plotted storyline. The series is filmed like a factual programme and focuses on a team of three detectives.
Ben Frow, Director of Programmes, Channel 5 said, “Suspects has been an incredible critical success for Channel 5, and praised for its innovative and game-changing approach to procedural drama. We’re thrilled by the reaction and are excited about commissioning a further series for later in the year.”
Paul Marquess, Managing Director, Newman Street says: “Suspects is the most exciting show I’ve ever made, so we can’t wait to get back into production and we’re delighted to be working with Ben and Greg Barnett again.”
