DESCRIPTION:
(from Sundance's press release, July 2011) On the heels of two Emmy(R) nominations for its first scripted drama "Carlos," Sundance Channel announces a second original drama, APPROPRIATE ADULT. Based on true events, Appropriate Adult tells the story of British serial killer Fred West and his relationship with his "appropriate adult," Janet Leach. In the UK, an "appropriate adult" is appointed to sit in on police interviews with children or vulnerable adults to safeguard their interests. Appropriate Adult features acclaimed actor Dominic West (The Wire, 300) portraying Fred West, with Academy Award(R) nominated actress Emily Watson (Hilary and Jackie, Breaking the Waves) starring as Janet Leach. Set to premiere on Sundance Channel this fall, the two-part miniseries is a dramatization based on meticulous research and was shot in Manchester, England.
