Sky has announced that its new eight-part supernatural crime thriller The Rising will begin filming in the Lake District this month. The series is adapted from the Belgian crime thriller Hotel Beau Séjour, and will feature elements of mystery, suspense and horror.
The Rising is the first series produced entirely in-house from Sky Studios, Sky’s new production and development arm. It’s the second under its Studio banner, following the RTS-winning Sky Original The Third Day.
The Rising is told from the viewpoint of Neve Kelly (Rugaard), who is alarmed to discover that she’s dead. Initially scared and confused by this revelation, she’s even more shocked to discover she has been murdered. She’s determined to find her killer and get justice.
Offering a novel twist on the standard police procedural, Neve takes us through the investigation into her death, going where the police can’t. In the process she uncovers deeply buried secrets and is forced to re-examine everything about her life and the people she cared about.
With nothing to lose but time, Neve will push for the truth even when it hurts. Her return forces everyone around her to change, confess, or start covering their tracks. But, it also reveals that there are others like her out there…

Promising a distinctive tone and visual style, The Rising is described as a story about love, justice and the cost of pursuing the truth in a world that wants to keep it hidden.
The atmospheric thriller stars Clara Rugaard (I Am Mother) as Neve, Nenda Neururer (A Brief History of Struggle) as the irreverent Alex Wyatt who has recently returned to the area after three years away and Solly McLeod (Boxing Day) as Joseph Wyatt, Alex’s cousin and Neve’s longstanding boyfriend.
