From legendary writer Paul Abbott (Shameless [UK], State of Play) comes an “exhilarating, ballsy, and…filthily funny” (The Independent, UK) police comedy-drama with fierce female characters and a shrewd, irreverent take on crime. Charismatic DI Vivienne Deering (Joanna Scanlan, Notes on a Scandal) leads an ace but unorthodox squad that tackles Manchester’s most gruesome and off-the-wall crimes, including drug dealers, neo-Nazis, and black-market organ sellers. When strong-willed DC Dinah Kowalska (Elaine Cassidy, Acceptable Risk) connects a body at the morgue to a group of murdered girls with Down’s syndrome, Viv and her team begin the hunt for a serial killer. What they uncover could leave even the most seasoned officers reeling.

Loaded with dark humor and shocking plot twists, this award-winning series also stars Alexandra Roach (Iron Lady, Anna Karenina), Will Mellor (Broadchurch), Paul Ritter (Vera), and Colin Salmon (Arrow)

Creator Paul Abbott (Shameless) delivers a police procedural with a difference. Set in a crumbling cop shop on the wrong side of Manchester, the darkly comic series follows a group of tough but big-hearted officers, led by the highly capable but unquestionably unhinged DI Vivienne Deering (Joanna Scanlan). Deering and her crack team often resort to unconventional methods in order to keep these streets clear of pimps, petty thieves—and killers. 8 episodes, 6 ½ hrs, 3 DVDs, SDH.
