Sky ‘Conjures’ Ghosts In The Lake District For New Series The Rising

The figure ascended near the banks of Derwentwater in the early hours of the morning, stunning passers-by with its eerie lifelike presence.

Where is Zack Bagans when you need him? Fear not as Sky has conjured up a ghostly apparition to launch its new supernatural crime thriller, The Rising.

The ghostly apparition appeared on the banks of Derwentwater, Lake District to mark the launch of Sky’s brand-new supernatural thriller.

Appearing in the early hours of the morning, the eerie figure began to rise from beneath the water set against the dramatic backdrop of the mountains. Surrounded by a grey mist, the blue-grey hue of the life-sized figure stunned passers-by who looked on in awe as she appeared to mouth the words “come find me”.

Created using cutting edge technology the visual was, in fact, a hologram depicting lead character Neve Kelly (Clara Rugaard), to launch the brand-new, Sky Original series, The Rising. In the show, set in the lake district, Neve is seen to emerge from a lake as she returns from the afterlife to help those investigating her death to find her killer.


The Rising is an eight-episode series based on the popular Belgian drama Beau Séjour which has been adapted to a contemporary British setting by Sky Studios. The protagonist Neve Kelly, (Rugaard), is scared and confused to one day discover that she is dead. In this new plane of existence, she becomes furiously determined to find her killer and get justice, convinced that her killer was someone she knew.
