24 August 2017 For more information, please email our Press Office

STV Productions has secured its first BBC drama series commission.  The four part thriller for BBC One, The Victim – written by Rob Williams (The Man in the High CastleChasing Shadows) – will be filmed in Scotland early next year.

Executive producers are Sarah Brown and Rob Williams for STV Productions and Elizabeth Kilgarriff and Gaynor Holmes for BBC One.

The Victim is a gripping, contemporary legal thriller told through the eyes of the plaintiff and the accused. Set in Edinburgh, within Scotland’s unique legal system, the show offers a constantly surprising and twisting perspective on who is really ‘the victim’.

Played out through the lens of one criminal trial, moral dilemmas will be thrown up and sides will be taken in two very different quests for justice.

“We are thrilled to have secured this commission from the BBC and excited to start filming in Scotland.

Sarah Brown – head of drama at STV Productions.

The Victim has been commissioned by Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, and Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content.
