Life On Mars creators Ashley Pharoah and Matthew Graham are writing the six-episode period drama The Living And The Dead. Co-produced by BBC America and BBC Wales Drama Production, the story follows Nathan Appleby, a reluctant gentleman farmer in 1888 England who is obsessed with proving the existence of the afterlife. He looks into hauntings, paranormal happenings, and ghostly visitations, encouraged by the Society for Psychical Research. But as his investigations become more frequent and more scary, Nathan starts to see and hear disturbing things that he simply cannot have imagined. Casting is to be announced. “We are as excited about this show as anything since Life On Mars and Ashes To Ashes,” said Pharoah and Graham, who also are exec producing for Monastic Productions. “We want it to be moving, tender, sensual — and very, very scary.” Faith Penhale, and Katie McAleese also are executive producing. BBC Worldwide will distribute The Living And The Dead worldwide.
