THE RISING TV SERIES
While primitive and vulgar, vile lowlifes are slapping other equally primitive, vile and vulgar punks at the Oscars in the most abhorrent example of behaviour ever,
we are staying classy and returning to the posh old Britain where Sky's new supernatural thriller series THE RISING is arriving to Sky Max and Now streamer from April 22nd.
|The Rising arrives this April
The eight part murder mystery follows Neve Kelly (Clara Rugaard), who emerges from the waters of a lake and returns home to find that she has been reported missing. When she realises she's dead, she is scared and confused; When she finds out she was murdered, Neve is furious. When it becomes obvious that she was killed by someone she knows, Neve makes it her mission to find her killer and get justice by taking advantage of her new supernatural abilities to go where the police can’t and investigate her own
Of course, the police and her loved ones are looking for answers at the
same time, but Neve can fill in the gaps for viewers on all the details
about her recently ended life that could lead to the unmasking of the
culprit. Taking stock of her short life, Neve in particular regrets
never having left her isolated
community; in death she finds a pastime
in disrupting the lives of those around her including her estranged
father Tom (Matthew McNulty) and her beloved mother Maria.
As she guides us through her murder investigation and buried secrets
come to light, she’s forced to reconsider everything about her
the people who were in it.
However, her return also forces those she knew to change, confess, or
cover their tracks. She also discovers that there are others out there
just like her.
The series is a story of love, justice, and the cost of unearthing the
truth when there is every reason to keep it hidden.
