ITV has announced that Emily Watson (Chernobyl, Apple Tree Yard) and Denise Gough (Paula) have started work filming Too Close, a psychological thriller mini-series written by author and actress Clara Salaman.
"Too Close focuses on the compelling and dangerous relationship between forensic psychiatrist Dr Emma Robertson (Emily Watson) who is assigned to work with Connie Mortensen (Denise Gough) a woman accused of a heinous crime but who claims she can’t remember a thing," ITV said.
"Dr Robertson is not easily shocked. She’s worked with her fair share of high security patients. However, when she’s sent to assess Connie for trial the two women become dangerously close.
"Connie has a searing insight into Emma’s deepest insecurities and starts to brutally exploit them. Their sessions become a complex psychological game with confusing undercurrents.
"Emma tries to understand Connie and her complicated relationship with her beautiful best friend, Ness Jones (Thalissa Teixeira), which seems to have made her snap. But as Emma tries to uncover the truth and learn what triggered Connie’s despicable behaviour, it seems that her attempts to see justice done may destroy her instead."
Emily, Denise and Thalissa will be joined by cast including James Sives, Risteárd Cooper, Chizzy Akudolu, Karl Johnson, Eileen Davies, Nina Wadia and Paul Chahidi.
Snowed-In Productions Chief Executive Ruth Kenley-Letts commented:
“I am absolutely thrilled that we’re finally shooting Too Close. We’ve assembled such a talented cast and crew for Clara Salaman’s brilliantly compelling and gripping adaption of her novel and we’re so excited to be working with Polly Hill at ITV. We can’t wait to get started.”
Too Close will air on ITV.
