Cinemax, the network home to such original series as The Knick and Banshee, has announced a six-episode limited run of a show called Rellik, according to Deadline. In the same spirit as Showtime’s hit series Dexter, Rellik (“Killer” spelled backwards) is an original take on a serial killer tale. The events will unfold in reverse, beginning with the murder(s) and spinning the yarn backwards to show how the serial killer was created.
Emmy nominee Sam Miller (Luther) is attached to direct. Rellik, commissioned last year by BBC One, is the product of creators Harry and Jack Williams. The Williams brothers are also responsible for the critically-acclaimed mystery series The Missing, currently wrapping its second season on BBC1.
Rellik is not yet in pre-production, and no further details (such as premier date) have yet been announced by Cinemax. Please stay tuned to HNN for more news as it develops!
