Based on the mind-bending graphic novel by Si Spencer, Bodies debuts on Netflix on Thursday 19th October. The eight-part drama stars Jacob Fortune-Lloyd, Amaka Okafor, Shira Haas and Stephen Graham. Filming in the region was done with locations and crewing support from Screen Yorkshire’s Film Office.
When a body – the same body – is found on Longharvest Lane in London’s East End in 1890, 1941, 2023 and 2053, one detective from each period must investigate. As connections are drawn across the decades, the detectives soon discover their investigations are linked, and an enigmatic political leader – Elias Mannix – becomes increasingly central.
Bodies is created by Paul Tomalin and co-written with Danusia Samal, directed by Marco Kreuzpaintner (with additional episodes by Haolu Wang) and produced by Moonage Pictures.
