Murder Island

Shot on the remote Scottish island of Gigha, the six-part series is based around a murder plot – written and developed by internationally acclaimed and number 1 bestselling crime author, Ian Rankin – which will see members of the public take on the role of detective and lead their own investigation.   The amateur detectives will compete to solve the crime and build a watertight case that can stand up in court, all under the watchful eyes of some of Britain’s leading Senior Investigating Officers.

Murder Island is funded from Channel 4’s Contestable Pot – a ring fenced grant, funded by Motion Content Group, to find the next innovative, channel-defining format for Channel 4, and is described by the broadcaster as a bold, noisy, compelling idea that brings together two really popular genres centred around the enticing question, ‘could you solve a murder?’
