Production Underway for BBC America's New Crime Drama Ripper Street

BBC America

Production began last week in Dublin for BBC America's new crime drama, Ripper Street. The eight part series is set in and around Whitechapel in London's East End in 1889, during the aftermath of the Jack The Ripper murders.

The series will star Matthew Macfadyen (MI-5), Jerome Flynn (Game of Thrones), Adam Rothenberg (Alcatraz), MyAnna Buring ("The Twilight Saga") and David Dawson (Luther). The action centers on the notorious H Division, which is charged with keeping order in the chaotic streets of East London.

"To this day, audiences continue to be fascinated by Jack The Ripper and the events in Whitechapel in the late 19th Century," said Richard De Croce, BBC America's SVP of Programming. "This script and cast are going to take us for a great ride. We're excited to be involved in such an ambitious production."

Ripper Street is expected to premiere this fall on BBC America.
