Ireland’s Virgin Media Television and AMC Network’s Sundance Now have commissioned Irish drama series The Vanishing Triangle (6 x 60 min), which will go into production later this year. Produced by Park Films (Ireland), Paper Plane Productions (US) and 87 Films (UK), The Vanishing Triangle is inspired by true events that shook Ireland in the 1990’s, when several women disappeared, never to be seen again.

India Mullen (Normal People, Brassic) stars as reporter Lisa Wallace, working in the face of prejudice and police incompetence to investigate the mysterious murder of her own mother nearly twenty years earlier. Allen Leech (Downton Abbey, Bohemian Rhapsody) plays David Burke, a detective helping Wallace with her case, but whose own struggles of coming to terms with his sexuality are a constant burden.

“Gathering together so many strong international partners to bring this incredibly powerful story to screen has been a real joy, and we can’t wait to see the results as we move into production over the coming months,” says Adam Barth, Director of Co-productions, Acquisitions, and Development at Eccho Rights.
