More about the Series:
Based on the Sunday Times Bestselling novel of the same name by series producer C.J Tudor and adapted by Hans Rosenfeldt (Marcella, The Bridge). THE BURNING GIRLS is a psychological horror meets small town mystery in this story of a troubled vicar, desperate to exorcise the demons of her past and find peace in their new home.
The series features multi-award-winning British actress Samantha Morton’scharacter Reverand Jack Brooks and her daughter Flo who arrive in the small village of Chapal Croft, seeking a fresh start. They soon find a village rife with conspiracies and secrets where uncovering the truth can be deadly in a community with a bloody past. The trailer shows current villagers commemorating the death of two young Protestant martyrs who were betrayed and burned at the stake five hundred years ago – by creating dolls and tossing them into fire.
