The six-part series will go on floors this month in London
Amazon Prime Video's Original Series The Devil's Hour is a horror show comprising folk tales about unexplainable events occurring during the Devil’s Hour (3.33 am). Jessica Raine (Patrick Melrose, Informer) and Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who, The Thick of It) are the latest additions to the much-anticipated show.
The main plot of the UK Original series follows the story of Lucy (Jessica), who wakes up to see terrifying visions at exactly 3.33 am: the devil’s hour. Her eight-year-old son is withdrawn and emotionless. Her mother speaks to empty chairs. Her house is haunted by the echoes of a life that isn't her own. When Lucy's name is inexplicably connected to a string of brutal murders in the area, the answers that have evaded her all these years will finally come into focus.
Peter plays a reclusive nomad, who becomes the prey of a police manhunt led by the detective Ravi Dhillon (Nikesh Patel). While the series is being directed by ‘The Irregulars’ fame director Johnny Allan and Isabelle Sieb (Vigil), The Devil’s Hour is show-run and created by Tom Moran. It also features Meera Syal from Goodness Gracious Me, Chernobyl actor Alex Ferns, Rhiannon Harper-Rafferty from The Donmar Warehouse's All-Female Shakespeare Trilogy with Phil Dunster (Ted Lasso), Barbara Marten (Sanctuary), Thomas Dominique (Blood Drive) John Alastair (Swimming with Men), Sandra Huggett (Coronation Street) and the newcomer Benjamin Chivers.
The Devil’s Hour is slated to go on floors this month in London and Farnborough Studios.
