LONDON, July 9 (UPI) -- ITV says it has ordered a six-part, murder-mystery thriller called Loch Ness.
The television program will star Laura Fraser, Siobhan Finneran and John Sessions. The ensemble will also include Don Gilet, Gray O'Brien and William Ash.
"In a community nourished and sustained by myth and bordered by untamed nature, the search for a serial killer becomes a matter of life and death for local detective Annie Redford who is trying to cope with her first murder case," the British broadcaster said in a press release. "When the body of local man Niall Swift is found at the foot of Carn Mohr Mountain and an isolated human heart on the loch shore, the town's normality is shattered and the nightmare begins. Chillingly, the beautiful scenery, undulating Highlands and vast expansive loch becomes a character in its own right, adding a haunting depth to the community's plight."
The miniseries was written by Stephen Brady and is being overseen by ITV Studios' creative director for drama and executive producer Tim Haines.
"Serial killers are monsters that lie beneath the surface of normal happy communities. Where better to hunt for one than in a place that has thrived off its own monster myth for centuries -- Loch Ness," Haines said in a statement.
