Downton Abbey and Liar star Joanne Froggatt has promised "twists and turns" in ITV's new thriller Angela Black.

The suspenseful six-parter, which premieres on Sunday, casts Froggatt as the title character – who is trapped in an abusive marriage and constantly manipulated by her husband Olivier (Game of Thrones' Michiel Huisman).

Angela is confronted by private detective Ed (The Watch's Samuel Adewunmi), revealing he's been hired to dig up dirt for a potential divorce filing. When Ed has second thoughts and admits Olivier could be a killer, Angela must find a way out.

Digital Spy and other media recently spoke with Joanne Froggatt about the gripping storyline for this dark drama, with the star promising this is a defined story where viewers will get answers by the end of the series.

"This is a one and only six-part series," she said. "It's such a twisty-turny thriller and it goes to places – I mean, I don't know where [creators] Jack and Harry [Williams] get these ideas.

"It's incredible to me how they come up with the concepts for their shows and Angela Black especially is just, it's a really intense psychological thriller and I think by the time we go through those six episodes and we get our very satisfying conclusion, I think you don't need to revisit it.

"The audience will all have been through enough shocks and surprises and twists and turns. It was very much meant as one story."

Angela Black creators Harry and Jack Williams have previously worked with Froggatt on the revenge thriller Liar, and are also the team behind critically-acclaimed dramas The Missing and Baptiste.

ITV will be airing Angela Black weekly beginning Sunday, October 10 at 9pm. Episodes will also be available on the ITV Hub following their TV transmission.
