The Cry prodco options Lennox novels
The Glasgow-based prodco behind hit drama The Cry has optioned the rights to adapt Scottish author Craig Russell’s Lennox books into a TV series.

The books are set in Glasgow in the 1950s and follow a private detective who is caught in the middle of three crime bosses who control the city as it recovers from the Second World War.

The 4×60′ TV adaptation is being developed as a returning period crime series by Synchronicity Films, written by Robert Murphy (DCI Banks, Vera, Shetland).

Claire Mundell, MD and creative director of Synchronicity, said: “Craig Russell’s Lennox is a fascinating character, taking inspiration from the classic noir detective and infusing him with freshness and bite through intricately researched setting, authenticity of the period and compelling plot.
