BBC One has released a first look at Jenna Coleman in their new four-part thriller The Jetty.

Announced in August last year, BBC One's new four-part thriller The Jetty, from writer Cat Jones, stars Jenna Coleman as rookie detective Ember Manning.

When a fire tears through a holiday home in a scenic Lancashire lake town, Detective Ember Manning must work out how it connects to a podcast journalist investigating a missing persons cold case and an illicit ‘love’ triangle between a man in his twenties and two underage girls.

But as Ember gets close to the truth, it threatens to destroy her life – forcing her to re-evaluate everything she thought she knew about her past, present and the town she’s always called home.

Described as much a coming-of-age story as a detective thriller, The Jetty asks big questions about sexual morality, identity and memory, in the places that Me Too has left behind.

When filming wrapped, Jenna Coleman said "Working with BBC and Firebird Pictures on bringing the complex and enigmatic character of Ember Manning to life has been an incredible experience. I can’t wait for everyone to meet this new heroine and to find out what’s lurking beneath the surface of The Jetty."

Jenna Coleman stars alongside Archie Renaux, Laura Marcus, Bo Bragason, Amelia Bullmore, Ruby Stokes, Tom Glynn-Carney, Weruche Opia, Matthew McNulty, Ralph Ineson, David Ajala, Nina Barker-Francis, Miya Ocego, Elliot Cowan, Shannon Watson, Arthur Hughes, Dominic Coleman and Ruaridh Mollica.

Produced by Firebird Pictures, one of BBC Studios’ owned production labels, The Jetty has been written and created by Cat Jones, directed by Marialy Rivas and executive produced by Elizabeth Kilgarriff, Sarah Wyatt, Cat Jones, Marialy Rivas, Jenna Coleman and Jo McClellan for the BBC.

The Jetty is coming soon to BBC One
