The ABC Murders by Agatha Christie, narrated by Hugh Fraser
Expected release date: February 1

Hercule Poirot is returning to the small screen, this time with John Malkovich playing the beloved detective. The miniseries adaptation will air on Amazon Prime and also stars Rupert Grint.

There’s a serial killer on the loose, working his way through the alphabet and the whole country is in a state of panic. A is for Mrs. Ascher in Andover, B is for Betty Barnard in Bexhill, C is for Sir Carmichael Clarke in Churston. With each murder, the killer is getting more confident—but leaving a trail of deliberate clues to taunt the proud Hercule Poirot might just prove to be the first, and fatal, mistake.
