HBO, in a collaboration with Sky, is making a mini-series, titled Landscapers, with Olivia Colman in the lead. The British actor will also be the executive producer of the four-part series.
Alexander Payne will direct the show, which will be written by Ed Sinclair. The show is based on real-life killers Susan and Christopher Edwards, who killed her parents and buried the bodies in the garden. They also stole the money of the victims and managed to get away without getting caught for more than 15 years.
