A stand out line-up of stars are set to step into guest roles for Alibi's upcoming crime drama, We Hunt Together. The UKTV Original series, produced by BBC Studios Productions and written by Gaby Hull, is due to air next month.
The guest stars include Nigel Harman (EastEnders, Mount Pleasant), Kris Marshall (Death in Paradise, Sanditon), Steffan Rhodri (Gavin & Stacey, Keeping Faith), Vicki Pepperdine (Getting On, The Trouble with Maggie Cole), Neil Stuke (Silent Witness, Doctor Foster) and Perry Fitzpatrick (I Am Nicola, This is England '90).
A brave new take on a classic cat and mouse story, We Hunt Together explores the intoxication of sexual attraction, the dangerous power of emotional manipulation and how finding a volatile form of solace in another can have dire consequences for those who dare to get in the way.
Freddy (Hermione Corfield) is magnetic, highly intelligent, disarmingly charming...and she might just be a psychopath. Baba (Dipo Ola), on the other hand, is vulnerable, compassionate yet damaged and a former child soldier, whose chance encounter with Freddy turns his world upside down. He's desperate to suppress his predisposition for extreme violence, but the pair's lust for each other takes over and creates a truly deadly duo.
Meanwhile, DS Lola Franks (Eve Myles) and DI Jackson Mendy (Babou Ceesay) face their own unconventional relationship, as the pair get thrown together to work on a high-profile murder case and try to catch the killers. Jackson's history of working in police anti-corruption infuriates Lola, so too does his firmly held belief that no one can ever be held entirely responsible for their actions. Their differing opinions cause conflict during their investigation, as does Lola's inability to deal with her own demons which have the potential to push them both to breaking point.
We Hunt Together starts next month on Alibi.
