Stephen Moyer Returns to UK TV with SAFE HOUSE
ITV announced today that Stephen Moyer has taken over the lead role in the UK network’s series Safe House. Originally starring Christopher Eccleston, the first season of Safe House followed an ex-policeman protecting a family from a serial killer at his guest house.
After Eccleston left the show for “confidential reasons”, Stephen stepped in to star in the second season. Set to air in four parts, the new season of Safe House sees Stephen playing charismatic ex-police officer Tom Brook, who now runs a police safe house on the edge of the Anglesey coastline.
Tom and his partner Sam (Zoe Tapper)’s lives are changed forever when a shocking crime occurs. Years before, Tom had investigated a series of abductions by an unknown criminal known as ‘The Crow’, who took wives away from husbands as they helplessly watched on in horror. On hearing news of a crime bearing the same hallmarks, Tom immediately goes to the scene, revealing to the police that he believes ‘The Crow’ is active again.
Safe House season 2 is expected to air on ITV early next year. Stephen will next be seen on US screens in Shots Fired, a limited series on FOX.
