Joanne Froggatt films ITV drama in London
The 6 x 60 is from screenwriters Harry and Jack Williams for their production company Two Brothers Pictures.
Froggatt plays Angela, a suburban housewife whose seemingly perfect life isn’t all it appears to be. Michiel Huisman and Samuel Adewunmi also star.
Froggatt said “I am honoured to be working with Two Brothers Pictures again and this important and timely story from the brilliant Harry and Jack Williams is like nothing I’ve read before. Angela is a complex and intriguing character and I hope audiences will be immediately drawn into her gripping, and sometimes heart-breaking journey, just as I was”.
“I always find myself drawn to characters like Ed when watching/reading dramas and it’s no different with Angela Black. That coupled with the opportunity to collaborate with Craig Viveiros (again) as well as Harry and Jack Williams on a compelling story like Angela Black is very exciting and fortuitous when considering the impact 2020 has had on all industries including film and TV. I feel blessed.”
The writers said: “We are thrilled to be working again with the brilliantly talented Joanne, and to have her joined by such amazing actors as Michiel and Samuel is more than we could have hoped for. This script is unlike anything we’ve written before - and there’s no one better than Craig to bring this dark, Hitchcockian psychological thriller to life"
Jack and Harry Williams executive produce the series alongside Christopher Aird and Sarah Hammond. Natasha Romaniuk produces; Craig Viveiros directs.
