Ragdoll is a new crime series from the producers of the mega-popular Killing Eve, and production has started on the series now in the UK. Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars) will star in the series, which is set up at AMC/Alibi. Henry Lloyd-Hughes and Thalissa Teixeria will join her after being cast earlier this spring. The series received a six-episode order in February. Hale will play a new recruit helping track down a new serial killer nicknamed "The Ragdoll Killer", who will give the cops the names of his victims. It is based on the novel of the same name by Daniel Cole It all sounds very moody and AMC-ish, so I am sure it will be very popular. Variety had the news of production starting up.
Ragdoll Does Have An Interesting Twist
Here is the premise in full: "six people have been murdered, dismembered, and sewn into the shape of one grotesque body — nicknamed the "Ragdoll." Assigned to the shocking case are DS Nathan Rose, recently reinstated to the London Met; his best friend and boss, DI Emily Baxter; and the unit's new recruit, DC Lake Edmunds (Hale). The "Ragdoll Killer" taunts the police by sending them a list of his next victims, with Rose's name among them. And with those victims to protect, our heroes soon come under intense public scrutiny."
The production has actually been going this entire month, so it should be wrapping up fairly soon. That means there is a shot we get to see this before the end of 2021, early 2022. In any case, there is a lot of buzz around this one and many of us are looking forward to it. Hopefully, we can get a premiere date from AMC soon.
