THE HOLIDAY: JILL HALFPENNY TO STAR IN CHANNEL 5 ADAPTATION

Channel 5 has commissioned a 4x60 minute TV adaptation of T.M. Logan’s bestselling novel The Holiday, from production company NENT Studios UK.



Written by Michael Crompton, the series will track four female best friends on holiday in the south of France whose lives are turned upside down when one finds out her partner is having an affair. She then discovers that someone in the villa where they are staying may be prepared to kill to keep their secret hidden.


Jill Halfpenny will play Kate, whilst Owen McDonnell will play Kate's cheating husband Sean.


Jill Halfpenny says: “T.M. Logan’s novel, The Holiday, was such a joy to bring to life and filming with such a talented cast was just fantastic! Portraying Kate’s dream holiday turn into a nightmare was great fun and hopefully the fans of the book, and those who have yet to discover it, will enjoy the rollercoaster journey we take you on with this gripping thriller.”



Channel 5's Sebastian Cardwell said: “With a compelling storyline drawn from a real page-turner of a book, and a sun-kissed Mediterranean backdrop, The Holiday should make thrilling television.”
