A brand new ITVX premium true crime series, the title will see Marcel Theroux investigate a set of disturbing murders of young women that have remained unsolved since the 1970s and reveal a dark and violent side hidden beneath the wealth and glamour of exclusive corners of London’s nightlife at that time.

The journalist and filmmaker’s long-standing interest in the brutal murders, which shocked the London he grew up in, led him to return to the killings of Eve Stratford, a Playboy Bunny who aspired to be a famous model, Lynda Farrow, a croupier with years of experience working in nighttime London, and Lynne Weedon, a schoolgirl whose whole life lay ahead of her.  “Marcel will take the audience on an astonishing journey through London at a time of enormous social change, from the West End’s most glamorous nightspots, to the crime scenes of three tragic murders. But these women are not just names or statistics,” John Farrar,  Chief Creative Officer Future Studios, said. “They were someone’s daughter, someone’s friend, someone’s partner. Marcel is not only on a mission to seek the truth but to shine a light on those lives that were tragically cut short.”        

Olivia Marries Her Match (4 x 60) Olivia Attwood is back and this time giving viewers an access-all-areas pass to her wedding day as she marries her fiancé, Blackburn Rovers professional footballer Bradley Dack in a glamorous and idyllic ceremony, in this next big stage of Olivia’s life.

From wine tasting to dress fittings, to hen and stag parties nothing will be off limits as we see the highs and lows of organizing a day to remember.
