In October 2003, Luke Ryder was found dead in the garden of the family home in London, leaving behind a wealthy older widow and three stepchildren. Despite a huge police investigation the case was never solved.

Years later a group of experts re-examine the evidence on Infamous, a true-crime show—with shocking results. Does the team know more than they’ve been letting on?

Or does the truth lie closer to home?

Being developed for TV by Neal Street, the multi-award winning production company set up in 2003 by Sam Mendes, Pippa Harris and Caro Newling.
