Costa centres on Cathy and her three children, who are running from violence, both past and present. Having escaped to the Costa del Sol they think they have found the perfect place of sanctuary at the Casa de Salamandras. However, a violent and troubled spirit still lingers within its walls - an expat with a murky profile tied to the Costa del Crime. When Cathy and her family arrive, they unwittingly disturb ‘Winston’, the troubled spirit of a murdered hitman.

The series is written by Gaby Chiappe and Alex Perrin. Chiappe is known for The Beast Must Die, Misbehaviour, Their Finest, The Level and Shetland. Perrin is known for The Level, Shetland and Leonardo.
