Paul Testar (The Serpent) produced with Sherie Myers (I May Destroy You) as co-producer, and Jim Loach (Save Me Too) directed the series.

In The Tower's opening sequence, two people have fallen from the top of a tower block in south east London - a veteran beat cop and a teenage girl. Left alive on the roof are rookie police officer Lizzie Adama and a five-year-old boy. Within hours, Lizzie has disappeared, and Detective Sergeant Sarah Collins is charged with leading the investigation. She not only has to track down Lizzie before she comes to serious harm, but also to uncover the truth behind the grisly deaths. What chain of events took two police officers and two children to the roof of that tower block? Why did two of them die? Why did two of them survive?

The antagonistic relationship between the experienced Sergeant Sarah Collins and the novice cop Lizzie Adama is at the heart of London's novels and the series. What happened on the roof of the tower is the mystery that Sarah must uncover. When it's finally revealed, the truth will cast its shadow over Sarah and Lizzie's future relationship and their lives.

Windhover Films was formed by Patrick Harbinson in January 2021. Its principals have worked in the film and TV business in London and LA for nearly thirty years. Mammoth Screen, one of the UK's leading independent production companies, is an ITV Studios label.
