Netflix has announced an adaptation of Agatha Christie's The Seven Dials Mystery, penned by Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall and directed by Chris Sweeney, whose credits include The Tourist and Back To Life.

The Seven Dials Mystery is the first series to go into production with Orchid Pictures and will begin filming this summer.

Christie's novel is set in a stately home with a large cast of characters. The story follows the suspicious death of Gerry Wade, who has a habit of oversleeping. The other houseguests decide to play a practical joke on him, setting eight alarm clocks to go off, one after the other, starting at 6:30 a.m. But when morning arrives, Wade is discovered dead and one clock is missing.

Suzanne Mackie of Orchid Pictures and Chris Sussman executive produce. Chibnall will also executive produce through his company Imaginary Friends alongside James Prichard of Agatha Christie Limited.

Orchid Pictures was founded in 2020 by Suzanne Mackie with the goal of bringing stories from both up-and-coming and award winning writers to the world’s stage. Suzanne has since assembled a team to develop a rich slate of diverse content, including Hannah Campbell and Sophie Loizou.
