News Image
Filming is to commence this June on ITV's four-part drama series 'Cheat', starring Katherine Kelly ('Strike Back', 'The Night Manager') and Molly Windsor ('Three Girls').

Written by Gaby Hull and produced by Two Brothers Pictures, Cheat focuses on the dangerous relationship between university professor Leah (Katherine Kelly) and her student Rose (Molly Windsor) which begins with academic deception.

Tom Goodman-Hill ('Humans', 'The Secret Agent', 'Mr Selfridge') also joins the cast as Leah's boyfriend, James, whilst Lorraine Ashbourne ('Unforgotten', 'The Interceptor', 'Silent Witness') and Peter Firth ('Spooks', 'Strike Back', 'Victoria') play her parents Angela and Michael. Adrian Edmondson ('Bancroft', 'Retribution', 'War & Peace') takes the role of Rose's father, William. 

It will be produced by Lydia Hampson ('Fleabag', 'Wonderdate') with Christopher Aird ('Retribution', 'Clique', 'Call The Midwife') as Executive Producer. Louise Hooper ('Lucky Man', 'Cold Feet', 'Vera') will direct each of the four episodes. Filming is due to begin soon in Hampshire and Hertfordshire.

All3Media International will distribute the drama globally.

Louise Pederesen, CEO international for All3Media, said: "As the international distribution partner of Two Brothers Pictures, we are delighted to announce that Sundance Now will be our US pre-sale partner on Cheat. We are really excited by their enthusiasm for the series. Cheat is a fabulously taut thriller – pivoting around the relationship between two strong but complicated women. We will be launching the series at MPCOM and are confident the series will attract more partners as production continues over the summer."
