Sherlock creators reunite for The Devil’s Hour, a timely UK thriller for Amazon Prime Video

Amazon Prime Video has announced new UK produced Original thriller series The Devil’s Hour, written by Tom Moran and executive produced by genre hit makers Steven Moffat (Sherlock, Doctor Who, Dracula) and Sue Vertue (Sherlock, Dracula). 

Filming will start later this year in the UK. It will screen exclusively on Amazon Prime Video globally.

The Devil’s Hour is that period in the middle of the night when we inexplicably wake up  – the hour between 3am and 4am, or 3.33am specifically, a time when unexplainable things can occur. 

The six part show follows the story of Lucy Chambers, who wakes up every night at exactly 3.33am. Her eight-year-old son is withdrawn and emotionless. Her mother speaks to empty chairs. Her house is haunted by the echoes of a life that isn’t her own. Now, when her name is inexplicably connected to a string of brutal murders in the area, the answers that have evaded her all these years will finally come into focus. The Devil’s Hour is a creepy, philosophical thriller that seeks to explain the inexplicable.
