ITV to broadcast psychological thriller Cheat.
The makers of ITV Drama Liar are moving onto Cheat for the broadcaster
“Cheat is a fiendishly engaging four part drama which I’m delighted to commission from screening writing newcomer, Gaby Hull. It’s a tense and taut thriller packed with intriguing plot that promises to have audiences on the edge of their seat. I’m thrilled we’ll be working with Two Brothers Pictures on this series.” – ITV drama boss Polly Hill
The drama for the network will air as a four-part miniseries, which has been written by screenwriting newcomer Gaby Hull. At the heart of the saga is the dangerous relationship between university professor Leah, and her student Rose, when, what begins as a seemingly open and shut case of academic deception, quickly spirals out of control, ending in fatal consequences, and triggering a devastating sequence of events that threaten to engulf them both.
With two fiercely intelligent minds unwilling to back down, Cheat will keep audiences guessing from the start, exploring just how far we’re prepared to stand up for what we believe, and at what cost. Produced for ITV Drama by Two Brothers Pictures the four episodes will go into production during the early part of 2018.
“Cheat is a gripping and brilliantly written drama debut, and we’re delighted to be working with Gaby bringing this story to the screen.” – Writers and producers, Jack and Harry Williams
Two Brother Pictures have also been responsible for hit ITV drama series, Liar, which is the channel’s highest rated new drama of the year. The series, starring Joanne Froggatt and Ioan Gruffudd, is currently heading towards a dramatic conclusion with the finale broadcasting on Monday 16th of October on ITV, STV and UTV.
