Slash Boards Paramount+ Drama ‘The Crow Girl’ As EP; Guns N’ Roses Guitarist Will Also Contribute To Soundtrack


EXCLUSIVE: Slash is set to shred some solos for Paramount+’s latest British drama series.

The Guns N’ Roses guitarist has boarded The Crow Girl as an exec producer. He will also contribute to the soundtrack for the show, alongside composer Adam Price.

It comes after the streamer ordered the project to series, which comes from Marcella producer  Buccaneer, last month.

Deadline understands that the musician, otherwise known as Saul Hudson, is a big fan of the novel, written by Erik Axl Sund, and brought it to Buccaneer.

Starring Eve Myles, Katherine Kelly and Dougray Scott, The Crow Girl begins with the gruesome discovery of a teenage boy’s body discarded in plain sight. Determined to find who is responsible, DCI Jeanette Kilburn joins forces with psychotherapist Sophia Craven to hunt the killer, despite opposition from her superiors including confidant DI Lou Stanley.

The Crow Girl is the first major TV writing gig for Milly Thomas, who acted in the likes of The Crown and Sex Education. The six-part series is currently in production in Bristol.

Slash will exec produce alongside Tony Wood and Richard Tulk-Hart for Buccaneer, Thomas, Federico Ambrosini, Niclas Salomonsson and Erik Axl Sund.  

Charles Martin and Rebecca Rycroft will direct with Andy Mosse serving as producer. 

Slash said, “I fell in love with Erik Axl Sund’s novel The Crow Girl and was really excited to partner with Buccaneer to produce it. There’s an amazing cast and crew working hard to bring the harrowingly dark and suspenseful story to life as a limited series. It looks amazing.”

Tony Wood, co-CEO of Buccaneer, added, “Working with Slash has been a privilege. He knew Erik Axl Sund’s powerhouse of a trilogy before we did, and he brings an amazing insight to it. Working with an artist of such standing from the music world has brought a fresh perspective to the project and has massively elevated the work.”
