Critically acclaimed actress Rosie Cavaliero (The Endfield Haunting, Inside No.9) is joined by Philip Glenister (Life on Mars, Mad Dogs), MyAnna Buring (Banished, Ripper Street), Nathan Stewart-Jarrett (Utopia, Misfits), Ralph Ineson (Game Of Thrones, The Office) and Sammy Winward (Emmerdale) for the second series of ITV’s gripping drama Prey.
Written by Prey creator Chris Lunt, the new three-part story will see Rosie reprise her role as DS Susan Reinhardt the no-nonsense, hard-working cop now reporting in to DCI Mike Ward (Ralph Ineson).
Philip Glenister takes the role of Prison Officer David Murdoch whose life becomes complicated when on a routine visit to a Manchester hospital with female prisoner Jules Hope (MyAnna Buring) events spiral out of control. David takes a phone call, which will change his life forever, and he suddenly finds him on the wrong side of the law.
With the life of his heavily pregnant daughter, Lucy (Sammy Winward), threatened, David has no alternative but to go ‘on the run’ and inadvertently becomes ‘the prey.’
Unaware of the danger to Emma, DS Susan Reinhardt, whose personal happiness seems forever blighted, tries to unravel why David is suddenly behaving totally out of character. With his reputation as a prison officer intact, Reinhardt attempts to unravel why he makes every effort to strenuously dodge the Police.
In some amazing chase sequences, Reinhardt and her new colleague, DC Richard Iddon (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett), go in pursuit as a desperate David handcuffs himself to Jules. She is his only bargaining tool as he sets out to move ‘heaven and earth’ to find his beloved daughter.
The cast also includes Kieran O’Brien (Silk, Love Life) and Lisa Millet (Cucumber, The Paradise).
