It was previously revealed that hit ITV drama Prey, written by Chris Lunt was to return starring Rosie Cavaliero and Philip Glenister and today new names have been revealed as the series starts filming in the North West (Manchester, Salford and Blackpool).
Philip Glenister and Rosie Cavaliero will be joined by Myanna Buring (Banished, Ripper Street), Nathan Stewart-Jarrett (Utopia, Misfits), Ralph Ineson (Game Of Thrones, The Office) and Sammy Winward (Emmerdale).
The new three-part story will see Rosie Cavaliero 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 suddenly sees him on the wrong side of the law.
With the life of his heavily pregnant daughter, Emma (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.
The amazing chase sequences we grew to know and love from series one are back, this time Reinhardt and her new colleague, DC Richard Iddon (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett) go in pursuit as in desperation 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.
Also joining the cast are Kieran O’Brien (Silk, Love Life) and Lisa Millet (Cucumber, The Paradise) and Prey will be directed by Lewis Arnold (Banana, Misfits, Humans).
Prey returns later this year on ITV
