ITV peek into drama ‘Red Eye’

Adrenaline-filled six-part drama, Red Eye, is set on an overnight flight from London to Beijing and the corridors of power within Whitehall…

Starring Jing Lusi, Richard Armitage, Lesley Sharp, and Jemma Moore, the broadcaster today released preview photography showcasing Jing Lusi as DC Hana Li and Richard Armitage as Dr. Matthew Nolan in the production.

After attending a medical conference in Beijing and coming frighteningly close to dying in a car crash, Dr. Matthew Nolan, played by Richard Armitage (Fool Me Once, Obsession), arrives home and is immediately arrested at London’s Heathrow Airport. Exhausted and confused, Nolan is accused of the murder of a woman who was in the car he crashed. Despite his protests that he was driving alone, Nolan is set to return to China to face charges.

DC Hana Li, played by Jing Lusi (Crazy Rich Asians, Gangs of London), is the no-nonsense London officer charged with accompanying Nolan back to Beijing. Her resentment for this assignment, and of Nolan himself, is immediate. However, in flight, when a first death occurs, DC Li begins to suspect foul play. Further deaths confirm that Nolan is in danger, and after a call from MI5, Hana finds herself embroiled in an escalating conspiracy.

Back in London, the drama follows Hana’s sister, scrappy reporter Jess Li, played by Jemma Moore (HOST, Silent Witness), who is running her own investigation into Nolan’s extradition and finds herself running for her life from an unknown assassin. And in Thames House, the head of MI5, Madeline Delaney, played by Lesley Sharp (The Full Monty, Before We Die), breaks protocol and risks her entire career to not only help Hana and Nolan stay alive but also to expose an international conspiracy that seems to implicate both China and people in her own government.

“Directed by Kieron Hawkes  and produced by multi award-winning and Sony Pictures Television-backed Bad Wolf. Executive producers are Julie Gardner (I Hate Suzie, Doctor Who), Lachlan MacKinnon (Industry, A Discovery of Witches), and Peter A Dowling, with Kristian Dench (The Capture, Strike Back) as producer and Jingan Young writing episode four.”ITV
