A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder films in the south-west

Emma Myers, Holly Jackson and Zain IqbalProduction is underway in the south-west of England on A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, adapted from Holly Jackson’s mystery thrillers, for delivery to BBC Three. 

Moonage Pictures is producing the 6 x 45’ series with Dolly Wells directing from Poppy Cogan’s scripts.

Florence Walker produces; executive producers are Matthew Read, Matthew Bouch and Frith Tiplady for Moonage Pictures, with Lucy Richer and Danielle Scott-Haughton for the BBC, and Wells, Jackson and Cogan. 

The drama revolves around the case of Andie Bell, a schoolgirl murdered by her boyfriend Sal Singh. Everyone in town, including the police, knows Singh did it. But smart Pip Fitz-Amobi (played by Emma Myers) is not so sure when she covers the case for her final-year project, and sets out to prove that the real killer is still out there… Zain Iqbal co-stars as Ravi. 

Author Jackson said: “I am so unbelievably excited that Emma is our Pip. She is phenomenal and this role was truly always meant to be hers. And we found our perfect Ravi in Zain. I can’t wait for us all to be able to watch their scenes. I smile every time I see them together, because I know that we’ve pulled off the impossible, and Emma and Zain are the only two people I would trust to bring these characters to life. Everyone’s going to be just as thrilled as I am.”

Exec producer Read added: “As soon as we read Holly Jackson’s ruthlessly compelling page-turner, we knew it had all the elements of must-see television. We are thrilled that Emma Myers is onboard to play our unique protagonist Pip Fitz-Amobi and we can’t wait to see the brilliant newcomer Zain Iqbal bring Ravi to life on screen in Poppy Cogan’s amazing adaptation.”
