The BBC has acquired a gripping new thriller series. Fronted by Grey's Anatomy alum, Richard Floor, The Gone is slated for release on BBC Four and iPlayer. The broadcaster is yet to confirm an official release date. 

"Set amongst the beautiful New Zealand landscape, The Gone is an atmospheric and suspenseful mystery thriller, guaranteed to keep viewers guessing until the very end…" explains Sue Deeks, Head of BBC Programme Acquisition.

Following an Irish detective, Theo Richter, and his new partner, Kiwi detective Diana Huia, the duo are forced to investigate the sudden disappearance of an Irish couple from a rural New Zealand town. "Their job isn't made any easier by the community's growing concern that the disappearances may be linked to a series of historical murders," teases the synopsis. 

Boasting an impressive cast, Richard Floor leads the series as Detective Theo Richter. Revered for his role as Dr. Cormac Hayes in Grey's Anatomy, the actor is also known for Crossing Lines, Red Rock and Shameless
