Channel 5's Thrilling New Drama 'Cold Call' Will Be Your Next Binge-Worthy Series

Channel 5's Thrilling New Drama 'Cold Call' Will Be Your Next Binge-Worthy Series

If you're on the hunt for your next binge-worthy series, look no further as Channel 5's original drama Cold Call sounds like perfect Halloween viewing.

The four-part psychological thriller stars Ordinary Lies actress Sally Lindsay as June Clarke, a single-mother caught up in a fraudulent cold call scam that threatens to unravel her life.

Set in Manchester, hard-working mum June is left determined to salvage her family's future after the out-of-the-blue phone call throws her life into chaos.

The synopsis adds: "Following the death of her elderly mother and fuelled by a bubbling rage, June attempts to hunt down those responsible. But the question is, how far will June go to get her money back?"

Each hour-long episode will explore just how far a normal woman can be stretched when a very real threat to her - and her family's - lives presents itself.

The gripping drama also stars Daniel Ryan (Mount Pleasant) as Des, Paul Higgins (Line of Duty) as Kirk, Taj Atwal (Stella) as Hana and Daniel Skinner (Sex Education) as Aubrey.

The series was written by Karyn Dougan-Buckland and Mark Buckland and is the first original drama order for Channel 5 in four years.

Speaking about the new show, which was first announced last August, series lead Sally Lindsay said at the time: "I'm incredibly excited to be working with Channel 5 and Chalkboard on Cold Call. The pitch was a complete page turner, the story jumping off the page straight away.

"I can't wait to bring this very modern thriller alive; exploring how far a very normal woman will be stretched when she is horribly deceived, and her entire life and family are destroyed.

"I think the subject matter is extremely of the moment with the divide of the haves and have-nots getting ever wider."
