Procedural crime drama Whitstable Pearl (6X45’, Buccaneer Media for AMC Networks’ Acorn TV) is set in the beautiful English seaside town of Whitstable, home to Pearl Nolan (Kerry Godliman, Derek, After Life), who divides her time between serving up tasty seafood delicacies in her restaurant and solving the crimes, debauchery, and murder regularly brought in by the tide.
