Starz will launch eight episode crime drama “The Gloaming” on Sunday, March 21 across all platforms, as well as on Starz on 9 p.m. ET. The logline: When a woman is found brutally killed, the clues surrounding her death connect to murders both past and present. Political corruption and shady business dealings are soon entwined with sinister crimes and occult practices. At the center of this web are two detectives, Molly McGee (Emma Booth, “Once Upon a Time”) and Alex O’Connell (Ewen Leslie, “Top of the Lake”) who share a tragic past. In a harrowing journey to find the truth, their fate is coerced by the ghosts of the unsettled dead that linger in the liminal space between life and death – known as “The Gloaming.”
“The Gloaming” also features Martin Henderson (“Grey’s Anatomy”) as Gareth McAvaney, Aaron Pedersen (“Mystery Road”) as Inspector Lewis Grimshaw, Rena Owen (“The Orville”) as Grace Cochrane, Josephine Blazier (True History of the Kelley Gang) as Lily Broomhall, and Matt Testro (“Nowhere Boys”) as Freddie Hopkins.
Written and created by Victoria Madden (“The Kettering Incident”), who also serves as showrunner, “The Gloaming” is a co-production with Madden’s Sweet Potato Films and John Molloy’s (“Molly,” Boys in the Trees) 2 Johns Productions and ABC Signature, a division of Disney Television Studios.
