Upcoming UK drama Liar, starring Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey) and Ioan Gruffod (UnReal, Hornblower), has been sold to Seven.
The six-part drama tells the story of a night that changes the lives of Laura Nielson (Froggatt) and Andrew Earlham (Gruffudd) forever.
An initial attraction between them leads to a date but neither fully realises the far-reaching consequences that their meeting will have on each other or their families.
The series is due to make its UK debut on ITV later this year. It is written by Harry and Jack Williams (The Missing) and is produced in conjunction with SundanceTV in the US.
Angus Ross told C21, the show’s “terrific storytelling and powerful subject matter will have viewers hooked until the very end.”
It will screen later this year.
Meanwhile Nine Network has taken Trolls: We’re Coming to Get You, a three-part documentary produced for Channel 5 in the UK.
