UKTV's latest original drama We Hunt Together has been given an airdate. The new gritty crime drama written by Gaby Hull is a brave new take on a classic cat and mouse story. We Hunt Together explores the intoxication of sexual attraction, the dangerous power of emotional manipulation, and how finding a volatile form of solace in another can have dire consequences for those who dare to get in the way.
The Show follows Freddy (Hermione Corfield) is magnetic, highly intelligent, disarmingly charming...and she might just be a psychopath. Baba (Dipo Ola), on the other hand, is vulnerable, compassionate yet damaged and a former child soldier, whose chance encounter with Freddy turns his world upside down. He's desperate to suppress his predisposition for extreme violence, but the pair's lust for each other takes over and creates a truly deadly duo.
Meanwhile, DS Lola Franks (Eve Myles) and DI Jackson Mendy (Babou Ceesay) face their
own unconventional relationship, as the pair get thrown together to work on a high-profile murder case and try to catch the killers. Jackson's history of working in police anti-corruption infuriates Lola, so too does his firmly held belief that no one can ever be held entirely responsible for their actions. Their differing opinions cause conflict between the pair, as does Lola's inability to deal with her own demons.
UKTV has also announced a star-studded lineup for the upcoming crime drama with names such as Nigel Harman, Kris Marshall, Steffan Rhodri, and Vicci Pepperdine.
We Hunt Together is the second series to be jointly commissioned by UKTV and BBC Studios Distribution, along with Alibi's hit show Traces, which aired in Late 2019.
