Netflix has boarded upcoming BBC3 drama, A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, starring Wednesday’s Emma Myers.

The series, commissioned by the BBC and produced by Moonage Pictures, in co-production with ZDFneo and Netflix, will first air in the UK and Ireland on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer before coming to Netflix later this year.

The new teen crime thriller is adapted for the BBC from Holly Jackson’s New York Times bestselling novel by Poppy Cogan (Red Rose, Dangerous Liaisons).

Five years ago, schoolgirl Andie Bell was murdered by Sal Singh. Case closed. The police know he did it. Everyone in town knows he did it. But Pippa Fitz-Amobi – our insatiably smart, slightly square heroine – isn’t so sure and she’s determined to prove it. But if Sal Singh isn’t a murderer and the real killer is still out there, how far will they go to keep Pippa from the truth?

A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder (6 x 45’) is written by lead writer Poppy Cogan alongside Zia Ahmed, Ajoke Ibironke and Ruby Thomas, and is produced by Florence Walker. Executive producers are Matthew Read and Frith Tiplady for Moonage Pictures, Lucy Richer and Danielle Scott-Haughton for the BBC, and Holly Jackson and Poppy Cogan.

The cast includes Zain Iqbal, Anna Maxwell Martin, Gary Beadle, Mathew Baynton, India Lillie Davies, Rahul Pattni, Henry Ashton, Mitu Panicucci, Orla Hill, Ephraim O.P. Sampson, Carla Woodcock, Yasmin Al-Khudhairi, Jackson Bews, Jessica Webber, Matthew Khan, Georgia Aaron, Oliver Wickham, Adam Astill and Annabel Mullion.
