An all-star line up joins award-winning actress Keeley Hawes in ITV’s new contemporary drama Finding Alice.
The six-part drama created by Roger Goldby, Keeley Hawes and Simon Nye, and written by Roger and Simon focuses on Alice’s honest, raw, blackly comic journey of grief, love and life after the death of her husband Harry.
BAFTA-nominated Hawes plays the role of Alice, and is joined by a star-studded cast including Joanna Lumley and Nigel Havers as Alice’s parents Sarah and Roger, and Jason Merrells as her husband Harry. Also joining the cast are Gemma Jones and Kenneth Cranham as Minnie and Gerry, Alice’s in-laws. Olivier award nominated actress Isabella Pappas (Paranoid) plays Alice and Harry’s 16-year-old daughter Charlotte, and Sharon Rooney is Harry’s sister Nicola.
ITV tease: "For Alice, Harry and their daughter, Charlotte, moving into their new home should have been a dream come true. But it quickly turns into a nightmare when Alice discovers Harry dead at the bottom of the stairs. Harry designed the smart house, so it’s weird and wonderful, and one more disorientation for Alice on top of her sense of loss and abandonment. Alice’s beloved partner is no more, and now she can’t find the fridge...
"Family should be a source of comfort, but Harry’s parents, Minnie (Gemma Jones) and Gerry (Kenneth Cranham), keep popping round uninvited. Whilst Alice’s own parents, Roger (Nigel Havers) and Sarah (Joanna Lumley), only seem to add to her list of problems. With Harry gone and Alice struggling to cope, Charlotte is forced to bottle up her grief and be the responsible one. Especially when the police turn up asking questions about the night that Harry died...
"To make matters worse, more unexpected visitors start knocking on Alice’s door, and she begins to realise that Harry’s business debt wasn’t the only secret he kept hidden from her."
The drama will air this January on ITV.
