AMC+ is delving into the world of true crime with the artistic, gritty, take on the thriller novel Ragdoll by Daniel Cole. In February 2021, AMC and Alibi announced that they would co-produce the thriller series based on the novel. Freddy Syborn (Bounty Hunters) would adapt the series, as well as serve as Executive Producer.
The 6 Part AMC+ series stars Henry Lloyd Hughes (The Irregulars), Thalissa Teixeira (Yerma), and Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars). Taking place on the gloomy streets of London, Ragdoll, follows detectives Edmonds (Hale), Baxter (Teixeira), and Rose (Hughes) as they try to solve the murder of 6 people whose bodies have been dismembered and sewn back together creating the “Ragdoll”. Only to realize, if they don’t act soon it could happen again.
I had a chance to sit down with Henry Lloyd Hughes and Thalissa Teixeira to discuss the dark world created for them. (Spoiler Free)
OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS FROM AMC+
Here’s the official synopsis for Ragdoll:
Six people have been murdered, dismembered and sewn into the shape of one grotesque body suspended from the ceiling in a block of London flats –– nicknamed the ‘Ragdoll.’ Assigned to the shocking case are newly reinstated DS Nathan Rose (Lloyd-Hughes); his best friend and boss, DI Emily Baxter (Teixeira); and the unit’s new recruit, DC Lake Edmunds (Hale). 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. A gruesomely imaginative serial killer thriller, Ragdoll captures the fascinating but flawed friends struggling with the consequences of institutionalization and trauma.
Ragdoll is scheduled to premiere on November 11th, 2021 on exclusively AMC+ with new episodes every Thursday.
