Paula is made by BBC NI Drama and BBC Studios with Cuba Pictures for BBC Two with funding from Northern Ireland Screen
Denise Gough stars in Paula, BBC Two’s new revenge thriller by playwright and filmmaker Conor McPherson.
Olivier and Tony-award winning Conor McPherson’s first original television series is a thrilling story about the fallout in a young Chemistry teacher’s life, after her one-night stand with a good-looking but dangerous ducker and diver. There is an instant, animalistic, spark of attraction before they become locked in a dance of mutual destruction. Only one can survive, but their actions will take a terrifying toll on all those around them.
Denise will be joined by Tom Hughes (Victoria, The Game) and Owen McDonnell (Spooks, Single-Handed) in the three-part drama directed by Alex Holmes (Coalition, House Of Saddam).
Paula will broadcast on BBC Two later in the year.
Paula (3 x 60) is made by BBC NI Drama with Cuba Pictures for BBC Two with funding from Northern Ireland Screen. Executive Producers for Cuba Pictures are Nick Marston and Dixie Linder. Stephen Wright is Executive Producer for the BBC. The series is produced by Peter Norris (Line of Duty). Paula was commissioned for BBC Two by former Controller BBC Drama, Polly Hill. BBC Worldwide will handle international distribution.
