Jamie Dornan Stars With Ann Skelly In Irish Drama 'Death & Nightingales' - Watch The Trailer!

Jamie Dornan runs into Ann Skelly in the Irish countryside in the dramatic trailer for their new mini-series, Death and Nightingales.

The three part limited series, based on the novel from Eugene McCabe, is a “riveting story of love, betrayal, deception and revenge, set in the haunting countryside of 1885 Fermanagh, Northern Ireland.”

Death and Nightingales takes place over a desperately tense 24-hour period, it’s Beth Winters’ (Skelly) 23rd birthday – the day she has decided to join the charming Liam Ward (Dornan) and escape from her limited life and difficult Protestant landowner stepfather Billy (Matthew Rhys).

As decades of pain and betrayal build to a devastating climax, Death and Nightingales is a powerful and gripping drama that follows a woman struggling to control her own destiny and will illuminate tensions that tear both families and nations apart.

Death and Nightingales is expected to debut on May 16.

Ann is currently starring on this HBO Max fantasy series.

The new HBO series The Nevers is already a huge hit and the show features some incredibly talented actors, many of whom you likely don’t know yet.

Joss Whedon created the new fantasy series, which is set in Victorian London and takes place three years after a supernatural event gives certain people – mostly women – abnormal abilities, from the wondrous to the disturbing.

No matter their particular “turns,” all who belong to this new underclass are in grave danger. It falls to mysterious, quick-fisted widow Amalia True (Laura Donnelly) and brilliant young inventor Penance Adair (Ann Skelly) to protect and shelter these gifted “orphans.” To do so, they will have to face the brutal forces determined to annihilate their kind.

The first episode premiered this week and it delivered the best-ever debut for an original series on HBO Max, according to Variety.

After directing the first three episodes of the series, Joss dropped out of the project due to “exhaustion” and to focus on his personal life amid the investigation into misconduct allegations on the set of Justice League. He was replaced as showrunner by Philippa Goslett.
