ITV's new four-part thriller Hollington Drive, was announced back in February 2020 and today they have confirmed the cast as filming starts in Wales.
Written by Sophie Petzal, the thriller focuses on the lives of sisters, Theresa, played by Anna Maxwell Martin and her older headteacher sibling, Helen, played by Rachael Stirling.
Theresa’s partner Fraser will be played by Rhashan Stone and Helen’s partner, David, will be played by Peter McDonald.
The sisters appear close and their families enjoy spending time together. We open on a warm, balmy evening, barbecue sizzling on the patio, the perfect family setting. The atmosphere is chilled, as they lounge in Theresa and Fraser’s perfectly manicured garden.
Apart from Fraser’s brother Eddie, played by Ken Nwosu, winding everyone up, there’s hardly a hint of tension, but this is the calm before the storm.
When Theresa’s ten-year-old son, Ben, played by Fraser Holmes, asks to play in the nearby park with his cousin Eva, played by Amelie Bea Smith, the adults begin to niggle. Fraser is relaxed and is fine for them to go, but this doesn’t help Theresa’s fears of foreboding and growing feelings of anxiety.
As expected the children don’t return on time, and Theresa goes in search. Her suspicions are heightened when she finds the children on the edge of a woodland area and they appear to be fighting. Immediately her instincts tell her something terrible has happened.
This is all too realised when later that evening distraught neighbour, Jean, played by Jodie McNee, calls on the family. Her ten-year-old son Alex has gone missing...
Hollington Drive also stars Jonas Armstrong and will be directed by Carolina Giammetta and produced by Catrin Lewis Defis. With Sophie Petzal and Jonathan Fisher serving as executive producers.
