Scottish actor and Game of Thrones star Rory McCann will lead an upcoming series based on the DCI Daley novel series, written by Denzil Meyrick.

According to reports by Deadline, the crime drama will consist of eight parts. Anthony Neilson, who has worked on the British dark comedy I Hate Suzie, will write and direct the adaptation.

Nielsen had called the DCI Daley stories as being distinct from the normal array of thrillers and investigative stories, which he calls rich and atmospheric. He expressed his excitement to bring a series to viewers which he guarantees will be ‘accessible’ and ‘compelling’.

McCann, well-known for his role as Sandor Clegane on HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones, will play the role of the titular investigator.

The series will be produced by Fudge Park and Ocean Independent. The former is known for producing Inbetweeners.

The DCI Daley series of books follows the adventures of Scottish police officer Jim Daley as he investigates baffling crimes and brings bad guys to justice. The first book in the series is called Whisky From Small Glasses and deals with the murder case of a young woman. It was published in 2012.

Scottish writer Meyrick, who served as a police officer prior to being an author, will executive produce the upcoming series based on his works.
