The Enfield Haunting: Matthew Macfadyen

Sky Living, the UK pay TV channel, will be showing The Enfield Haunting, a three-part poltergeist drama based on real events that took place in a house in North London in 1977.  It will star Matthew Macfadyen, Timothy Spall and Juliet Stevenson.  The Enfield Haunting will be directed by Kristoffer Nyhold, of The Killing fame.

Matthew Macfadyen will star as Guy Lyon Playfair, a skeptical investigator and the author of the book This House is Haunted from which the drama is adapted.

Macfadyen said: "I'm very pleased and excited to be a part of this strange, unsettling and really quite moving story - and especially pleased to be working again with the brilliant Tim Spall."

Spall will play Maurice Grosse, a rookie paranormal researcher, Juliet Stevenson will play his wife Betty.

The drama is being scripted by Joshua St Johnston (Walking on Sunshine), with Adrian Sturges producing for Eleven Films. The executive producers are Jamie Campbell for Eleven Films and Cameron Roach, Sky’s acting head of drama.

Sky says the supernatural drama will form the "cornerstone" of Sky Living’s schedule for spring 2015.  Production is due to begin in London this autumn.
