Apple TV+ announces new white-knuckle thriller, "The Dispatcher," starring Gotham Award winner Patrick Brammall

"The Dispatcher" is adapted by acclaimed writer Kris Mrksa, based on CWA John Creasey Dagger Award-winning author Ryan David Jahn's book of the same name

Today, Apple TV+ announced the new six-episode thriller "The Dispatcher," starring Gotham Award winner Patrick Brammall ("Colin from Accounts," "Evil") in the lead role. "The Dispatcher," set in Australia, is adapted by acclaimed writer and executive producer Kris Mrksa ("Requiem," "No Escape," "White House Farm") from CWA John Creasey Dagger Award-winning author Ryan David Jahn's book of the same name.

Police detective Ian Hunt's life fell apart 10 years ago when his young daughter Maggie disappeared without a trace. Now working as a police dispatcher, the only thing that has kept him going is his implacable refusal to accept that she might be gone forever. When he receives a distress call from a young girl he is certain is Maggie, he will stop at nothing to find her and reunite his broken family, whatever the cost.

The series is executive produced by Jamie Laurenson and Hakan Kousetta at 60Forty Films, with executive producers Mrksa and Joanna Werner at Werner Film Productions.

"The Dispatcher" joins a slate of acclaimed, thrilling dramas on Apple TV+, including the high-octane hit "Hijack," starring and executive produced by SAG and Golden Globe Award winner Idris Elba; beloved, multi-BAFTA Award-winning "Slow Horses," led by Academy Award winner Gary Oldman; and the recently announced "Down Cemetery Road," starring Academy Award winner Emma Thompson and Golden Globe Award winner Ruth Wilson, among others.

Apple TV+ offers premium, compelling drama and comedy series, feature films, groundbreaking documentaries, and kids and family entertainment, and is available to watch across all your favorite screens. After its launch on November 1, 2019, Apple TV+ became the first all-original streaming service to launch around the world, and has premiered more original hits and received more award recognitions faster than any other streaming service in its debut. To date, Apple Original films, documentaries and series have earned 498 wins and 2,180 award nominations and counting, including multi-Emmy Award-winning comedy "Ted Lasso" and historic Oscar Best Picture winner "CODA."
