June 12, 2024 – The BBC have released new pictures from fresh new crime drama The Jetty, giving audiences a deeper look at the complex inhabitants of the eerie lakeside town where an arson, missing persons cold case, and an illicit triangle are intricately intertwined.

Written and created by Cat Jones and produced by Firebird Pictures for BBC iPlayer and BBC One, the four-part mystery examines sexual morality, age of consent, grooming, identity and memory.

The new pictures feature The Jetty’s stars Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who, The Cry, The Serpent), Tom Glynn-Carney (House of the Dragon, SAS Rogue Heroes, Dunkirk), Ruby Stokes (Lockwood & Co., Rocks, Una), Archie Renaux (The Greatest Beer Run, Shadow and Bone, Romulus), Laura Marcus (The Great Escaper, Bad Education, The Serpent Queen), Bo Bragason (The Ballad of Renegade Nell, The Radleys), Weruche Opia (High Desert, Slumberland, I May Destroy You), and Amelia Bullmore (Happy Valley, The Larkins, Scott and Bailey).

When a fire tears through a property in a scenic Lancashire lake town, Detective Ember Manning (Jenna Coleman) must work out how it connects to a podcast journalist investigating a missing persons cold case and an illicit ‘love’ triangle between a man in his twenties and two underage girls.

But as Ember gets close to the truth, it threatens to destroy her life – forcing her to re-evaluate everything she thought she knew about her past, present and the town she’s always called home.

As much a coming-of-age story as a detective thriller, The Jetty asks big questions about sexual morality, identity and memory, in the places that Me Too has left behind.

The series also stars Matthew McNulty (The Rising, Domina, The Terror), Ralph Ineson (Nosferatu, The Witch, Green Knight), David Ajala (Italian Studies), Nina Barker-Francis (The Flash), Miya Ocego (Wreck, I Hate Suzie), Elliot Cowan (Fifteen-Love, The Crown), Shannon Watson, Arthur Hughes (Then Barbara Met Alan, Help), Dominic Coleman (Paddington, Trollied) and Ruaridh Mollica (Sebastian, Red Rose).

The Jetty (4 x 60’) is made by Firebird Pictures, one of BBC Studios’ owned production labels. It was created and written by Cat Jones, directed by Marialy Rivas (Young & Wild, Perry Mason, Princesita), and produced by Natasha Romaniuk. The executive producers are Elizabeth Kilgarriff, Cat Jones, Sarah Wyatt, Marialy Rivas, Jenna Coleman and Jo McClellan for the BBC.

Filming has wrapped and the series will launch soon on BBC iPlayer and BBC One. BBC Studios are the international distributors of the series.
