Here’s everything you need to know about Landscapers...

Landscapers cast

Casting for Landscapers is still being announced. Currently, we know that Olivia Colman (The Crown, The Favourite) is set to star as Susan Edwards. Recently, it was revealed that David Thewlis (Fargo, Big Mouth) will star opposite Colman as her husband, Christopher. 

Colman, who is also executive producer, said: “the truth is it’s quite rare to be desperate to play a part on the first reading of a script, but that was the case here. The writing is brave, but subtle and tender too — a joy for any actor.”

What’s the plot? 

Landscapers is set in Nottingham in the UK and follows the lives of convicted killers Susan and Christopher Edwards. Based on extensive research, hours of interviews and direct access to the accused couple, Landscapers asks how Susan and Chris came to be the subjects of an extraordinary investigation.

In a crime that remained undiscovered for over a decade, Susan and Chris are suddenly thrust into the spotlight when Susan’s parents are discovered buried in their back garden in Mansfield.

Sister’s website adds: “The drama also draws the audience into the surreal fantasy world that Susan and Christopher created by casting themselves as their Hollywood heroes in stories of their own invention.

"This is the story of a unique murder case involving four lives lived on the margins of society, that turns into an exhilarating and darkly funny exploration of love and fantasy: its power and its peril.”
