Sky has confirmed the release date for Wolfe (styled 'WOLFE'), its new "feel-good" crime drama series "with an unforgettable forensic family" at its heart.


Penned by Paul Abbott (Shameless, No Offence), the drama takes its title from lead character and "forensic powerhouse" Professor Wolfe Kinteh (played by Babou Ceesay), a forensic pathologist who's best summed up as half genius, half liability.

According to Sky, "each week Wolfe is propelled to a myriad of compelling locations, to piece together the parts (literally in most cases) of another outlandish and unconventional investigation. His team will face exploding vehicles, buildings…. and even bodies, doing anything to unearth the insidious truth behind these crimes. One thing is for sure though, they won’t be doing it in a way anybody expected."
