AMC Orders 6 Episodes of Drama 'Ragdoll' Created by Freddy Syborn

AMC has today given a series order to the original drama series Ragdoll created by Freddy Syborn (Bounty Hunters, Ms. Marvel). Production on the 6-episode season will begin later this spring for a premiere later in 2021.

The drama centers around the murder of six people, whose bodies have been dismembered and sewn into the shape of one grotesque body - nicknamed the "Ragdoll." Assigned to the shocking case are DS Nathan Rose, recently reinstated to the London Met; his best friend and boss, DI Emily Baxter; and the unit's new recruit, DC Lake Edmunds. The Ragdoll Killer taunts the police by sending them a list of his next victims, with Rose's name among them. And with those victims to protect, our heroes soon come under intense public scrutiny.

Syborn will executive produce with Dan McDermott, Kristin Jones, Philippa Collie Cousins, Sally Woodward Gentle and Lee Morris. Lizzie Rusbridger will serve as a producer. BBC Studios and Sid Gentle Films will produce.

"I hope Ragdoll will be a visually exciting, darkly funny thriller in which the personal is the political," said Syborn. "Above all, I hope our characters can make you laugh, then break your heart."
