Vicky McClure may have only just wrapped ITV's anticipated bomb disposal drama Trigger Warning, but she's already landed her latest role as the lead in ITV's thriller Without Sin.

The Line of Duty star revealed her hair transformation for the role in a post on Instagram - in which she has covered her chic cropped hair with a long brunette wig - and informed fans that she was proud to be filming the new series in her hometown of Nottingham.

McClure will also serve as executive producer on the series as her production company Build Your Own Films is collaborating with Left Bank Pictures (The Crown) and ITV to make the drama.

'We’ll keep it short and sweet for now but having both been involved in the media industry for decades we felt it was the the right time literally build our own projects!' the actress said in her Instagram caption. 'We couldn't be happier to take on our first co-production with the hugely successful @leftbankpictures for @itv. This is @byo_films first green lit co production and we are over the moon to have an incredible cast, wonderful crew, extremely talented new writer in Frances and to film Without Sin right here in my home town…NOTTINGHAM! Creating real jobs (Wales hopefully soon!).'

Here's everything we know about the series so far...

Without Sin - what's it about?

The four-part thriller follows Vicky McClure as Stella Tomlinson, whose 14-year-old daughter Maisy is found dead at their family home with the bloodied, hooded figure of Charles Stone (Johnny Harris) standing over her. To manage her grief, Stella takes on a nocturnal existence as an Uber driver, as the drama explores the relationship which develops between a grieving mother and the man she believes murdered her daughter.

ITV's synopsis reads: 'The drama focuses upon Stella's life three years on from the death of her teenage daughter and how she is still hostage to her grief. The loss of her beloved only child has created deep divisions in her life, as she struggles on a daily basis to come to terms with this.

'Wracked with guilt and remorse at the events of that night, she chooses to live a nocturnal existence as an Uber driver. She is estranged from husband Paul, who still lives in the family home. When contacted by Restorative Justice, and in an attempt to move on, Stella and Paul reunite to listen to a taped recording of Charles, who they believe wants to atone for his sins and apologise for murdering their daughter.

'Following this development, Stella returns to her roots in the Millfields estate. Surrounding herself with the people she trusts and holds dear, her mother Jessie and best friend Remy, she decides to take things with Charles one step further. Stella agrees to visit the prison alongside a Restorative Justice Mediator and come face to face with her daughter’s killer. But nothing could prepare her for what Charles has to say next…'

Without Sin - the cast

Vicky McClure reunites with her This Is England '86 co-star Johnny Harris. McClure plays a grieving mother, while Harris stars as the man she believes killed her only child.

The drama has been written by screenwriting newcomer, Frances Poletti. The complete cast has yet to be announced.

Without Sin - when will it be released?
