Director Jesper Nielsen recently said: "We have a really important and fantastic story to tell. About how one woman's search for a lost child opens Pandora's box; revealing the terrible lies and secrets in the little village of Redwater.

"A story about how the strong bonds of love in a family can hold everything together, and yet at the same time - destroy everything."

Redwater is former executive producer Dominic Treadwell Collins last EastEnders project so we’re expecting BIG things.
