Production Company Red Productions have released their trailer for new BBC1 drama series Happy Valley. 

BBC/Red Productions

The six-part series centres around Catherine Cawood (Sarah Lancashire). Catherine  is the sergeant on duty when flustered and nervous accountant, Kevin Weatherill (Steve Pemberton), comes into her West Yorkshire police station to report a crime. He’s reticent about the details and Kevin loses his nerve. The crime he was trying to report was Kevin’s own brain-child, a plot to kidnap his boss’s daughter and keep enough of the ransom to put his kids through private school. And now local drug king-pin Ashley Cowgill (Joe Armstrong) has put the plan into action, and Kevin’s fantasy has become a grim and dangerous reality. The botched kidnapping of Ann Gallagher (Charlie Murphy) and its fallout unfolds…Catherine is used to picking up the pieces of everyone else’s lives, but the hunt for Ann Gallagher will get right under her skin. Catherine becomes convinced that only by finding Ann alive and bringing her captors to justice can she avenge the death of her daughter

The series has been written by Sally Wainwright who recently won BAFTA’s for her other BBC1 drama Last Tango in Halifax. Last Tango in Halifax is also due to return for a third series in 2014.
