​ITV Drama 'Finding Alice' Starring Keeley Hawes Sounds Like The New 'Doctor Foster'

ITV's new drama Finding Alice is set to centre around the mystery and intrigue over a man's secrets - and it sounds set to be the new Doctor Foster.

The black comedy, which is now in production, also boasts an all-star cast.

Keeley Hawes (Line of Duty, Bodyguard, The Durrells) is taking on the lead role of Alice - a woman who has just lost her husband, Harry (Jason Merrells), following a horror fall the stairs of their newly built dream home.

The stellar cast are now in the middle of filming the six episodes, which will centre around Alice's grief, love and life after Harry's death in a raw yet amusingly dark fashion.

Their dream house sounds set to bring yet more drama to the show too, as Harry himself designed it and while it's beautiful, it is wholly impractical - she can't even find the location of the fridge!

But it's really set to get gripping when Alice finds Harry had been hiding something he really didn't want to deal with, unearthing a trail of secrets, debt suspicion and crime.

The description of the show sounds a bit like Doctor Foster - which we're sure you remember was about Dr Gemma, who set out to find the truth about her husband and discovers mysterious revelations.

The show will also star Sharon Rooney (The Capture, My Mad Fat Diary,) Gemma Jones (Gentleman Jack), Kenneth Cranham and Isabella Pappas.

It is being produced by RED Production Company, who also produced Happy Valley - so if that's anything to go by, we know this is going to be gripping.

Nicola Shindler, RED Production Company CEO and executive producer added: "To have such a strong calibre of actors join the cast alongside Keeley to breathe life into these complex characters is incredibly exciting, and I look forward to audiences meeting them."

Unfortunately, there is no release date for this just yet, as it is still in production, but there are plenty of other exciting TV shows dropping to get your teeth sunk into in the meantime.

For instance, White House Farm is a six-part series that already dropped its first episode earlier this week.

If you catch up on the show on ITV Player over the weekend, you'll be ready to settle in for part two this coming Wednesday.

It is based on the true story of Nevill and June Bamber, who were shot dead in their farmhouse along with their adoptive daughter, Sheila Caffell and her six-year-old twins, Daniel and Nicholas, in Essex while they slept.
