The four-part drama will tell the story of two murders affecting two families living side by side in Scotland and has been written by Jack and Harry Williams, the brothers who penned last year’s hugely successful James Nesbitt drama, The Missing.

Details of their new project are being kept under wraps but RadioTimes.com understands that Stevenson plays a mother called Louise with Edmondson playing her estranged husband.

Stevenson said of the new role: “I’m thrilled to be playing Louise in One Of Us as she is such an intriguing character. When I read the first script it immediately gripped me as it’s such a unique and compelling story, I can’t wait to start filming in Scotland.”

Other cast members announced by the BBC include Joanna Vanderham (The Paradise, The Go-Between), Laura Fraser (Breaking Bad, Peter & Wendy), John Lynch (The Fall, Sliding Doors) and Georgina Campbell (Murdered by My Boyfriend, The Ark).

They will be joined by Joe Dempsie (Game of Thrones, Skins) Julie Graham (Shetland, The Bletchley Circle), Gary Lewis (Stonemouth, Filth), Steve Evets (Rev, Looking For Eric) and Kate Dickie (Prometheus, Game of Thrones).
