David Swetman, SVP Scripted Content at All3Media International, commented, “With the incredible talents of Story Films and Emilia di Girolamo behind the camera and Niamh Algar in the lead role, Deceit is set to be a compelling, distinctive and sensitive exploration into one of the UK’s most controversial police investigations. By gaining access to previously unheard audio, video and written materials, the producers have been able to shine a brand-new light on this high-profile case and honey trap operation almost 30 years later. This was an investigation that made headlines around the world – and we know this four-part dramatization of those events is going to be a must-see in the international market.”
