The six-part offbeat drama exclusively premieres in the U.S. on Acorn TV with two episodes on Monday, May 18, followed by 1 new weekly episode every Monday through June 15.

Set in 1880s Ireland in the Victorian era heyday of “postmortem photography,” the six-episode period drama follows renowned memorial photographer, Brock Blennerhasset and his loyal assistant Conall Molloy as they visit grieving families for photo assignments, while a tenacious detective investigates a series of local murders and eyes possible disturbing connections between them and Brock. 

The series stars British Independent Film Award-winner Michael Smiley (Free FireLuther; Kill List), Kerr Logan (Game of Thrones, Alias Grace), Eileen O’Higgins (Brooklyn, Mary Queen of Scots) and Aidan O’Hare (The Dublin Murders, Jackie). Dead Stillalso features Jimmy Smallhorne (Taken Down, Clean Break), Mark Rendall (Departure, Versailles), Peter Campion (Derry Girls, Kat and Alfie: Redwater), and Martin Donovan (Big Little Lies, Fahrenheit 451). 

Dead Still is written by John Morton and directed by Imogen Murphy (Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope, Red Rock) and Craig David Wallace (Slasher, Todd and the Book of Pure Evil, Murdoch Mysteries). RTÉ and Acorn Media Enterprises (AME) have partnered to commission this Irish period mystery with Dublin-based Deadpan Pictures and Toronto-based Shaftesbury co-producing, alongside ZDF Enterprises.

AMC Networks’ Acorn TV is North America’s largest streaming service specializing in British and international television with over 1 million paid subscribers in the U.S and Canada.
