RELLIK (6 x 60’ for BBC1 and CINEMAX) is written and created by Jack and Harry Williams.
What makes a serial killer? Or the cop who is compelled to relentlessly track him down? What are the events that form a person into the human being they will become – killer or cop?
RELLIK (‘killer’ spelt backwards) is a crime thriller, with an inbuilt structural conceit that turns the serial killer story on its head. We start with a murder before spooling backwards in time to explore how and why it all happened. As well as a thrilling chase to catch a brutal murderer, RELLIK explores the very nature of motivation and how our pasts make us who we are.
