Emma Myers, who has been captivating audiences as Wednesday’s werewolf roommate Enid Sinclair in the Netflix sensation, is set to take on a new challenge. She will be leading the cast of the BBC’s adaptation of Holly Jackson’s best-selling mystery thriller, “A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder.”
Myers will be stepping into the shoes of Pip Fitz-Amobi, a smart and single-minded character who is not entirely convinced that schoolgirl Andie Bell was murdered by her boyfriend Sal Singh five years ago. The plot thickens as Pip wonders if the real killer is still at large and how far they might go to keep her from uncovering the truth.
Joining Myers is newcomer Zain Iqbal, who will be playing the role of Ravi. The adaptation is being penned by Poppy Cogan of “Red Rose” fame, with “Dracula” star Dolly Wells at the helm as director. The show is a high-profile commission for BBC Three, which is known for its youth-oriented content like the hit show “Normal People.”
Fiona Campbell, Controller of Youth Audience, BBC iPlayer and BBC Three, expressed her excitement about the casting choices. “In Emma and Zain we’ve found two actors who embody the characters so perfectly it will feel as though they’ve stepped straight from the pages of Holly’s books on to our screens. I can’t wait for BBC Three viewers to see them in action,” she said.
The show is set to begin filming in England later this year. The writing team includes lead writer Cogan, Zia Ahmed, Ajoke Ibironke, and Ruby Thomas. The production is being handled by Florence Walker, with Matthew Read, Matthew Bouch, and Frith Tiplady serving as executive producers for Moonage Pictures. Lucy Richer and Danielle Scott-Haughton will be executive producing for the BBC, along with Wells, Holly Jackson, and Cogan. BBC Studios, which has a minority investment stake in Moonage Pictures, will be handling international distribution of the series.
