Starz's 'Dublin Murders' Set to Debut in November

Starz will premiere its new drama series Dublin Murders on Nov. 10, the network said Tuesday.

The eight-episode series focuses on two murder investigations led by detectives played by Killian Scott (Ripper Street) and Cassie Maddox (Penny Dreadful, Ransom). The victims are seemingly unrelated, but as audiences will discover, they are knitted together by a powerful shared theme, according to Starz.

Dublin Murders was created by Sarah Phelps, who also serves as executive producer alongside Kate Harwood,  Noemi Spanos, Ed Guiney, Alan Gasmer, Peter Jaysen, and Saul Dibb -- who also serves as lead director, according to the network.
