The series will be Edinburgh-born Welsh's first work to be adapted for the small screen, after a number of successes with films. 

It follows the story of Ray, who appeared in the James McAvoy-starring adaptation of Filth, a police officer recovering from a mental breakdown.

Directed by James Strong, the show will feature Dougray Scott in the lead role, with support from Angela Griffin, Joanna Vanderham, and Jamie Sives.

The show is expected to debut on the streaming service Britbox later this year and is produced by Buccaneer Media and Off The Grid Film and TV
