Killing Eve star Fiona Shaw joining BBC One’s Series Baptiste

Baptiste is to return for a second, and final, season with Killing Eve /KillingEvestar Fiona Shaw joining the cast. The six-part series, made by Fleabag producer, follows retired detective Julien Baptiste (Tchéky Karyo) as he delves into Budapest’s corrupt underworld in an attempt to find a British Ambassador’s family, who goes missing on a skiing holiday in the Hungarian mountains.

Ambassador Emma Chambers is played by Shaw, a character who is thrust into the crosshairs of Baptiste’s most complex case to date, as the detective navigates an untrustworthy Hungarian police force and international media interest as he hunts for her husband and two sons.

Baptiste Season 2 will be filmed in February in Budapest. It will be executive produced by the Williams brothers alongside Christopher Aird for Two Brothers and Tommy Bulfin for the BBC. John Griffin will produce, while Thomas Napper and Hong Khaou will direct.

Karyo added that it was an “audacious” story, while Shaw commented on the talents of the Williams brothers: “I’m so lucky to be working with all the best of the new generation.”

The show was commissioned by BBC drama controller Piers Wenger and director of content Charlotte Moore.
