ITV have announced that they have commissioned a brand new drama called ‘Cheat’, which promises to be a ‘gripping and psychological thriller’.
The ’emotionally affecting’ new drama will be a four-part miniseries which is skillfully written by screenwriting newcomer Gaby Hull.
At the heart of the drama 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.
Commenting on the brand new series, ITV’s Head Of Drama Polly Hill said: “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.”
