In the Lifetime miniseries based on Agatha Christie’s bestselling 1939 novel, 10 strangers visit the remote Soldier Island and soon begin to die—is there a killer among them?

“Each guest is invited by letter, from a Mr. U.N. Owen, for a different and unconnected reason, and each holds a guilty secret,” explains Hilary Strong, executive producer and CEO of Agatha Christie Ltd. In filming the novel, the team wanted to honor Christie’s “brutal thriller focused on timeless characters going through hell,” adds Strong.
