First Trailer For Sky's Billie Piper Drama 'I Hate Suzie' Has Dropped
Hotly anticipated Sky drama series I Hate Suzie, now has a first-look trailer and it looks set to be brilliant.
The original show will tackle the hugely relevant topic of revenge porn, when a picture of star Suzie Pickles (Billie Piper) in a compromising position emerges.
The trailer shows Suzie's life spiralling and her attempting to deny that she is the person in the photos after her phone is hacked - another hot topic since the phone hacking scandal of 2011.
We hear her say unconvincingly in the trailer: "I just wanted to say that there were some photos posted online last week supposedly of me, stolen from me in some mass hack.
"I just want to say that, even though I have no issue with whatever it is that person is supposed to be doing in the photo, it's not me. No. So, don't w**k to lies, kids."
We also see her posing for selfies with fans, posing in photoshoots with tears in her eyes and it looks like she's really not enjoying the spotlight.
We see her angry, distraught and looking unstable as she battles with her emotions including shock, fear and acceptance. We even catch a glimpse of her covered in blood laying in a field.
It certainly looks set to grip.

Co-created by Billie and Secret Diary Of A Call Girl writer Lucy Prebble - which also starred Billie as the main character - we're expecting big things from this eight-part drama, especially thanks to a strong cast which includes: Daniel Ings (The Crown), Leila Farzad (Innocent) and Nathaniel Martello-White (Guerilla) also star alongside Lorraine Ashbourne (Unforgotten) and Phil Daniels (EastEnders).
Sky describes it as 'bold bracing excruciatingly honest drama about the moment in life when the mask slips'.
We'll watch as Suzie comes to terms with the betrayal and fear, whilst best friend and manager Naomi (Leila Farzad) tries desperately to help her hold her marriage, life and career together.
If there's ever a moment you need your BFF, we imagine it's this.
On announcing the show last year, Billie said: "It's taken years to finally get Lucy, my long-term GF and favourite writer in London - to work with me again. We feel we've created something timely and not for the faint-hearted.
"If you too suffer with anxiety, shame, compulsive lying - but like a laugh - please tune in at some point."
There is no set air date for I Hate Suzie yet, but it's coming to Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in 2020.
