Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting) will adapt his first TV drama, based on his novel Crime (check price at Amazon), alongside long-standing screenwriting partner Dean Cavanagh (Wedding Belles).

Set in Edinburgh and directed by James Strong (Liar, Broadchurch) the six-episode production will star Dougray Scott (Mission: Impossible 2, Hitman, My Week with Marilyn) as Detective Inspector Ray Lennox, who is investigating the disappearance of a schoolgirl while battling his own personal demons.

Crime is being produced by Buccaneer Media, Tony Wood and Dougray Scott. The executive producers are Irvine Welsh, Dean Cavanagh, Richard Tulk-Hart and James Strong.

Irvine Welsh said: “Delighted that BritBox have picked this up. Lennox is a compelling character for me, not so much a cop as a broken avenging angel. So don’t expect a run of the mill cop show, and nonces beware.”
