In his first original television series, Paula is written by Conor McPherson, Conor says: “I’m delighted to be working with the BBC on this exciting three-part story, and really looking forward to bringing it to audiences very soon.”

The series will be a unique twist on a crime and relationship drama, where a man and a woman get locked into a battle driven by vengeance.

Nick Marston, CEO Cuba Pictures adds: “We are delighted to be making this compelling and visceral thriller. Conor is an extraordinary writer and it is really exciting that he wants to create an original series for television. It is great to be working with the BBC on this, as they are the perfect partners for this piece.”
