Joanna Lumley joins Keeley Hawes in new ITV drama Finding Alice

They'll star alongside Nigel Havers, Jason Merrells, Gemma Jones, Kenneth Cranham and Sharon Rooney.

The six-part drama - created by Roger Goldby, Keeley Hawes and Simon Nye, and written by Roger and Simon - follows a woman whose husband’s sudden and accidental death unearths a trail of secrets, debt, suspicion and criminality.

The series focuses on the character of Alice, played by Keeley Hawes, and her honest, raw, blackly comic journey of grief, love and life after the death of her husband Harry, played by Jason Merrells who dies after falling down the stairs, after moving into their newly finished dream house,

Having designed the weird and wonderful, yet impractical house before he died, the move is one more disorientation for Alice, alongside her sense of loss and abandonment. Her beloved partner of 20 years is no more, and now she can’t even find the fridge

If that were her only problem… men have a habit of hiding stuff that they don’t want to deal with, and Alice discovers that Harry was worse than most.

Also joining the cast are Gemma Jones and Kenneth Cranham as Alice’s in-laws Minnie and Gerry. Whilst rounding off the cast are Isabella Pappas as Alice and Harry’s 16-year-old daughter Charlotte and Sharon Rooney as Harry’s sister Nicola.

Speaking about the cast of Finding Alice, Nicola Shindler, RED Production Company CEO and executive producer said “To have such a strong calibre of actors join the cast alongside Keeley to breathe life into these complex characters is incredibly exciting, and I look forward to audiences meeting them.”

Finding Alice will air on ITV
