ITV Releases Image From Neil Cross Drama ‘The Sister’ Starring Russell Tovey, Bertie Carvel, Amrita Acharia & Simone Ashley
ITV has released the first image of the upcoming 4-part drama ‘The Sister’ from ‘Luther’ creator Neil Cross, starring Russell Tovey, Bertie Carvel, Amrita Acharia & Simone Ashley.
The series stars Russell Tovey (‘Years and Years’, ‘Him & Her’) as well-meaning but directionless Nathan, a man trying to escape his past. Nathan has a terrible secret he’s long prayed would stay buried and for which he’s long worked hard to make recompense.
Almost a decade into his new and devoted married life, Nathan is rocked to the core when Bob, played by Bertie Carvel (‘Doctor Foster’), an unwelcome face from the past, turns up on his doorstep with shocking news….triggering a series of catastrophic decisions which cleverly drive a tense and compelling narrative of psychological suspense, dread, love and possible redemption.
“The Sister is going to challenge me as an actor more than I’ve ever been challenged before,” commented Tovey on the role. “As a web of lies, that he thought was dead and buried, comes back to haunt Nathan, he sinks deeper and deeper into the horror of the event that happened ten years ago. I cannot wait to start filming and join this amazing team and cast.”
The series also stars Amrita Acharia (‘Game of Thrones’) as Holly, Nina Toussaint White (‘GameFace’) as Jackie and Paul Bazely (‘Benidorm’) as Graham.
‘The Sister’ is produced for ITV by Euston Films, part of Fremantle, who were the people behind shows such as ‘Baghdad Central’ and ‘Dublin Murders’. Euston Films Managing Director Kate Harwood (‘Hard Sun’, ‘Cranford’, ‘Baghdad Central’) will executive produce the drama alongside Executive Producer for Euston Films, Noemi Spanos (‘Dublin Murders’). Niall MacCormick (‘The Victim’, ‘The Durrells’, ‘Doctor Thorne’) directs all four episodes. Neil Cross (‘Luther’, ‘Spooks’) wrote the series based on his novel Burial.
‘The Sister’ will premiere on ITV later in the year in the UK, and will air on Hulu in the US.
