TOM RILEY TO LEAD
NEW 'WAGSTAFFE' COP SERIES
Well, I did not expect our darling chap Tom Riley will be seeking another series even before we've seen him playing a fashion designer in Amazon's THE COLLECTION fashion empire period set drama which airs sometime later this year, but he has just been announced as the lead star of British ITV's new two hour pilot for possible new series WAGSTAFFE directed by Colin Teague.
Based on the books by crime author Adam Creed, the character driven dark drama WAGSTAFFE centres on the life and work of Will Wagstaffe (Tom Riley) — a London detective who has suffered terrible personal tragedy with the murder of his parents and his team.
