BBC America is working on a supernatural period drama series. Deadline.com reports that the piece is set in 1888 England, with “Life on Mars” creators Ashley Pharoah and Matthew Graham writing the six-episode drama.
The project, called “The Living and the Dead,” is a co-production of BBC America and BBC Wales Drama Production. It focuses on a gentleman farmer named Nathan Appleby who investigates ghosts and other paranormal activity.
“But as his investigations become more frequent and more scary, Nathan starts to see and hear disturbing things that he simply cannot have imagined,” the story notes.
