ITV commissions new drama, Cheat produced by Two Brothers Pictures


ITV’s Head of Drama Polly Hill has confirmed commission of gripping, psychological thriller Cheat.

Awarding-winning indie, Two Brothers Pictures, will produce the emotionally affecting 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, spirals out of control, triggering a devastating sequence of events. 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. 

Two Brothers Pictures, Harry and Jack Williams will executive produce the drama, which goes into production during the early part of 2018.

Cheat will be produced by Lydia Hampson (Fleabag, The Art of Foley) with details of who is to direct the series announced in the build up to filming.

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.
