Murder is Easy is set in England, 1954. On a train to London, a man going by the name of Luke Fitzwilliam meets Miss Pinkerton, who tells him that a killer is on the loose in the sleepy English village of Wychwood under Ashe. The villagers believe the deaths are mere accidents, but Miss Pinkerton knows otherwise. When she’s later found dead on her way to Scotland Yard, Luke feels he must find the killer before they can strike again.

The series stars David Jonsson (IndustryRye Lane) as Fitzwilliam, alongside Morfydd Clark (Lord of the Rings, Saint Maud) as Bridget, and Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey, After Life) as Miss Pinkerton.

Fifth Season handles international sales outside of the U.K., the Americas and South Africa.
