ITV Sets October Premiere Date For Neil Cross Drama ‘The Sister’ Starring Russell Tovey, Bertie Carvel, Amrita Acharia & Simone Ashley
TV has set an October premiere date for 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 – the worst night of his life: a party that led to the sudden, shocking death of a young woman.
Only he and Bob (Bertie Carvel – ‘Doctor Foster’), an eccentric old acquaintance, know what really happened… and they’ve resolved to keep it that way. But years later, Bob appears at Nathan’s door with terrifying news that threatens to tear Nathan’s world apart. Because Nathan has his own secrets now. Secrets that could destroy everything he has desperately fought to build for himself and his family.
This meeting triggering a series of catastrophic decisions which cleverly drive a tense and compelling narrative of psychological suspense, dread, love and possible redemption.
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’ premieres Monday, 26th October 2020 at 9pm on ITV in the UK. Hulu is set to air the drama in the USA.
