After the success of family crime drama Blood last year, Channel Five has announced their next new drama. It’s a four-parter entitled The Deceived. The drama, written by Lisa Mcgee (Derry Girls)  is set in Cambridge and Donegal, the northernmost county in Ireland. It is a contemporary psychological thriller following a young English student called Ophelia, who falls in love with her married lecturer, Michael. However, when their affair results in a shocking and tragic death, Ophelia finds herself trapped in a world where she can no longer trust her own mind.

Deadline is reporting that, like Blood, the show will also air on Virgin One in Ireland before transmitting on Channel Five. The channel also recently revealed it was rebooting All Creatures Great and Small and announced dark thriller Cold Call which revolves around a single mother caught up in a fraudulent cold call scam that threatens to see her life unravel. Sally Lyndsay is confirmed to star.

Casting for ‘The Deceived’ will be announced soon.
