This gripping three-part series explores one of the most notorious multiple murders in British history, the assassination of the so-called Essex Boys in an isolated country lane, 26 years ago.
It’s a case that has sparked countless gangster films, books, and a frenzy of online speculation and now for the first time, this series will go behind the headlines – taking us on a journey from deep in the heart of the nineties rave scene to the hidden world of organised crime.
Told through an extraordinary cast of characters from underworld gangsters to police, as well as present-day investigators who uncover shocking new evidence, The Essex Murders gets to the heart of a case that is still shrouded in questions and asks whether the right men were convicted of the crime.

It’s gangsters, drug deals, gangland, corrupt police the lot, no wonder it’s inspired so many gangster films. It was great to lean into those cinematic references for the grade and help bring this enigmatic saga to life.”
