Damien Molony, Suspects

Currently appearing in BBC Ripper Street, Damien Molony has been cast in 10 part crime procedural ‘Suspects’, an original drama from Channel 5 formerly called ‘Evidence’.

The series centres around 3 main characters:

Detective Sergeant Jack Weston played by Damien, described as “a man of action” with “acute emotional intelligence” whose “easy charm belies his killer gut instinct”

Detective Inspector Martha Bellamy “Witty and warm” leader of the police team played by Fay Ripley (Cold Feet), and

Detective Constable Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Steele a “passionate yet level-headed” detective played by Claire-Hope Ashitey (Top Boy).

‘Suspects’ is a departure from other crime dramas, using fly-on-the-wall documentary style filming techniques with the actors improvising much of their own dialogue and being directly involved in the creative process. Each episode will involve a different case, following the investigation from the committing of the crime to it’s conclusion.

The original Channel 5 drama is co-created by Paul Marquess, produced by Newman Street (part of FremantleMedia UK) and debuts early 2014.
