ITV DRAMA AND COMEDY HIGHLIGHTS FOR SPRING/SUMMER REVEALED

ITV have revealed its drama and comedy programming highlights for the coming months.



RED EYE

Jing Lusi, Jemma Moore, Lesley Sharp and Richard Armitage star in this drama about Dr Matthew Nolan, who arrives home and is immediately arrested at London’s Heathrow Airport after attending a medical conference in Beijing and coming frighteningly close to dying in a car crash - a dead woman was discovered in his crashed car, and despite his protests that he was driving alone, Nolan must return to China to face charges.



DOUGLAS IS CANCELLED

A four-part comedy-drama about cancel culture set in the world of television news and starring Hugh Bonneville, Karen Gillan, Ben Miles, Alex Kingston, Nick Mohammed and Simon Russell Beale. Middle-aged and greying, current affairs news anchor Douglas Bellowes (Bonneville) is a respected broadcaster and raconteur who loves the life he’s created with his newspaper editor wife Sheila (Kingston)


MIDSOMER MURDERS

The village of Blacktrees-on-Marsh not only sits in the very heart of Midsomer, but extraordinarily enough, it was once also listed on secret Cold War documents that detailed the places in England that Russia would target in the event of nuclear war. While the listing is more than likely a myth or a joke that someone cracked in The Huntsman’s Horn, there are still some who are convinced of its truth… even plagued by it.



TOM JONES

A rollercoaster story of the title character’s complicated journey to find real love. Solly McLeod (The Rising) stars as the hero Tom alongside Sophie Wilde (You Don’t Know Me) as the heroine Sophia Western and Emmy Awardwinner Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso) as the seductive and vengeful Lady Bellasto - written by Gwyneth Hughes (Vanity Fair, Miss Austen Regrets), Tom Jones is directed by Georgia Parris (Mari).


ORPHAN BLACK: ECHOES

Starring Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones, Breaking Bad) and Keeley Hawes (Bodyguard, Line of Duty), Orphan Black: Echoes is set in the world of landmark series Orphan Black.



CHANGING ENDS

This series is based on Alan Carr’s own life in Northampton in the 1980s growing up as the son of a Fourth Division football manager. Alan stars in the series as himself in the present day, and taking on the role of young Alan is rising star Oliver Savell (Belfast) - the cast also features Shaun Dooley and Nancy Sullivan playing Alan’s parents Graham and Christine, along with Taylor Fay as his younger brother Gary.


BAY OF FIRES

Set in the wilds of Tasmania, this series’s lead character is Stella Heikkinen, a woman whose fall from grace is as spectacular as it is life-threatening. Betrayed by her own company and in immediate danger, single mother-of-two Stella has no option but to move her young family to the last place on Earth anyone would expect.
