STV Studios secures first Netflix commission

Netflix has ordered a 3-part drama series from STV Studios.

The Witness is the company’s first commission from the streaming giant.

Written by Rob Williams (The Victim and Screw), The Witness is about the murder of Rachel Nickell in 1992. She was killed on Wimbledon Common and her son, Alex, just three weeks from his third birthday, was the only witness. 

The drama is based on the memoir and experiences of Alex and his father, André Hanscombe, who are both consultants on the show.

Filming is set to start this summer. 

“This is STV Studios first commission for Netflix and we very much look forward to collaborating with them on this project, which our experienced and committed drama team will produce with the utmost sensitivity and care that it deserves,” said David Mortimer, MD of STV Studios.
