Anne Dudley (The Full Monty, The Crying Game, American History X, The Hustle, Poldark) is the composer of the new FX and BBC limited series Black Narcissus. The show is developed by Amanda Coe (Apple Tree Yard, The Trial of Christine Keeler) based on the best-selling novel by Rumer Godden and stars Gemma Arterton, Alessandro Nivola, Aisling Franciosi, Diana Rigg, Jim Broadbent, Rosie Cavaliero, Karen Bryson, Patsy Ferran, Nila Aalia, Kulvinder Ghir, Chaneil Kular, Dipika Kunwar, Gina McKee, Soumil Malla and Gianni Gonsalves. The 3-part drama is set in Mopu, Himalayas, 1934 and centers on a group of young nuns as they attempt to establish a mission at a remote clifftop palace once known as the ‘House of Women’. Coe is also executive producing the DNA TV production with Andrew Macdonald (Trainspotting, 28 Days Later…) & Allon Reich (Ex Machina, Devs) and Lucy Richer (A Very English Scandal, Roadkill). Black Narcissus will premiere in the U.S. on November 23 on FX (and will also be available to stream the following day on FX on Hulu) and will debut in the UK in December on BBC One.
