Trailer Drops For BBC’s Martin Freeman-Starring ‘The Responder’ From ‘Salisbury Poisonings’ Producer Dancing Ledge Productions

The Responder

Here’s Fargo star Martin Freeman starring as a police officer in BBC1 upcoming The Responder, which was written by ex-police officer Tony Schumacher and produced by Salisbury Poisonings’ Dancing Ledge Productions.

The five-parter follows Chris (Freeman), a crisis-stricken, morally compromised, unconventional urgent response officer tackling a series of night shifts on the beat in Liverpool. Whilst trying to keep his head above water both personally and professionally, Chris is forced to take on a new rookie partner Rachel (Adelayo Adedayo). Both soon discover that survival in this high pressure, relentless, night-time world will depend on them either helping or destroying each other.

Additional cast includes Ian Hart, MyAnna Buring, Kerrie Hayes and Warren Brown. David Bradley and Rita Tushingham will also take on roles alongside newcomers Josh Finan and Emily Fairn.

The Responder is directed by Tim Mielants and produced by Rebecca Ferguson. Laurence Bowen and Chris Carey are executive producers for Dancing Ledge Productions and Mona Qureshi does the same for the BBC. The Responder secured funding and support from the Liverpool Film Office through the LCR Production Fund.
