There's a new drama coming to ITV and if you were hooked to Broadchurch, you'll love this.
Crime thriller, The Tower is a three-part series based on the novel Post Mortem by Kate London. It's been adapted by Homeland writer and executive producer Patrick Harbinson - which is a pretty solid indication it's going to be great!
Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones, Gentleman Jack, The Crown) will star in the lead role of Detective Sergeant Sarah Collins, who is set to task in investigating the deaths of a veteran police officer and a teenage girl who fall from a tower block in London.
ITV explain: "Left alive on the roof are a five-year-old boy and rookie police officer Lizzie Griffiths. Within hours, Lizzie has disappeared, and Detective Sergeant Sarah Collins is charged with leading the investigation.
"She not only has to track down Lizzie before she comes to serious harm, but also to uncover the truth behind the grisly deaths. What chain of events took two police officers and two children to the roof of that tower block - why did two of them die? Why did two of them survive?"
At the heart of the drama is the relationship between experienced Sergeant Sarah Collins and the novice cop Lizzie Griffiths.
But when the truth behind the two deaths is finally revealed, it will cast a dark shadow over Sarah and Lizzie's relationship, as well as their personal lives.
Paul Testar (The Serpent) is serving as producer on the series, while Sherie Myers (I May Destroy You) is co-producer, and Jim Loach (Save Me Too) is director.
Filming will begin at the end of the month, with more cast details to be released soon. While an air date has not yet been confirmed, we've got everything crossed The Tower hits our TV screens by the end of the year.
With Gemma Whelan starring, and such an incredible crew behind it, we've got a feeling this is going to be a good'n...
