Cinemax's Rellik — Official Trailer


added: Tue, Mar 6th '18

He may have died about six times as Beric, the Lord of Blackhaven on HBO's hit fantasy series "Game of Thrones," but now Irish actor Richard Dormer is playing a British cop who is, again, hard to kill in the new Cinemax mini-series "Rellik." Check out the trailer for the UK crime thriller, which takes a unique backward-spin method of telling its story, ala "Rellik" which is "Killer" spelled backward.

The six-part series stars Dormer as Gabriel, a British detective who is chasing down a serial killer who brutally attacks his victims with acid but Gabriel is not only the chief investigating officer -- he is a victim as well. After barely surviving an acid throw to the face, Gabriel is not only the only surviving victim he is the closest thing the department has to a witness. Now Gabriel must relentlessly retrace his steps to find any clue that can lead him to the killer before he strikes again.

The series, created by brothers Harry and Jack Williams (The Missing, Fleabag), begins with a pilot episode helmed by Sam Miller (Luther, No Good Deed) and co-stars Jodi Balfour, Ray Stevenson, Paterson Joseph, Laerke Winther, Shannon Tarbet, and Paul Rhys.

"Rellik" is set to start airing in the U.S. on Cinemax on April 13th.

Rellik, an original six-part thriller, stars Richard Dormer as Gabriel, an obsessive and disfigured UK police detective, and Jodi Balfour as Elaine, his bright and intense partner. Focusing on a serial killer, the story begins with the capture of the suspect and moves backwards in time to the crime itself. Obsessed with his hunt for the killer, Gabriel’s story becomes intrinsically bound to that of his suspect, asking the question, “What are the experiences that forge the people we all become?”
