“There’s so much to look forward to on ITV this spring and into summer, with the Euros and the return of Love Island, but much more besides. Brilliant drama production teams have worked in the most challenging production conditions to bring these very different but equally strong series to air. Kevin Lygo, Managing Director, Media and Entertainment, ITV

Coming up on ITV...

ITV’s Managing Director of Media and Entertainment, Kevin Lygo, has announced a bumper spring schedule for the network including:

●      Big TV events coming up - The UEFA Euro 2021 Championships and the return of Love Island

●      New dramas starring critically-acclaimed actors Noel Clarke (Viewpoint), Denise Gough, Emily Watson (Too Close) John Simm (Grace) and Katherine Kelly (Innocent)

●      Brand new entertainment shows featuring Ian Wright (Moneyball) Vernon Kay (Game of Talents) and the announcement that Oti Mabuse will be joining the judging panel for The Masked Dancer

●      Factual titles lead by Ross Kemp and Kate Garraway

The entertainment team at ITV are thrilled to be bringing three brand new series to viewers this spring with Vernon fresh out of the castle hosting Game of Talents, Ian Wright at the helm of Moneyball and Oti Mabuse joining the panel of The Masked Dancer.

In Factual, Kate Garraway will open up about the challenging year for her family, and Ross Kemp is on the trail of Britain’s tiger kings.

What a year it’s been, and Oscar-winning director Kevin Macdonald will reflect on that in his film, 2020:  The Story Of Us (w/t).

And we’re building on the success of Ant and Dec’s DNA Journey with three more films featuring celebrity pairings, looking into their past.

We're thrilled to share details of exciting new dramas and entertainment shows which are in production: 

●      The Thief, His Wife and The Canoe from Unforgotten writer Chris Lang, on the story of John Darwin who faked his own death to claim his life insurance. 

●      Atmospheric espionage thriller, The Ipcress File starring Joe Cole as iconic spy Harry Palmer, as well as Lucy Boynton and Tom Hollander, adapted by Oscar nominated writer John Hodge and directed by Emmy award winner James Watkins. 

●      The three-part sequel to the ground breaking single film The Murder of Stephen Lawrence, Stephen, is in production from the same team who produced the original drama.  Sharlene Whyte will play Doreen Lawrence, whilst Steve Coogan is Clive Driscoll and Hugh Quarshie reprises his role from the original film as Neville Lawrence. Alrick Riley is directing the drama and Madonna Baptiste producing.

●      Hitchcockian thriller Angela Black, starring Joanne Froggatt, Michiel Huisman and Samuel Adewunmi.

●      The Void; a brand new, high octane, Saturday night game show that sees contestants put themselves to the test to take on a wide range of demanding mental and physical challenges - all whilst dangling at terrifying heights over ‘The Void’

●      Ready to Mingle; coming to ITV2 this Autumn,a brand-new dating game show that will follow a single girl in her search for a perfect partner, as 12 male suitors compete for her affections and the chance to win a big money prize

●      Starstruck, an exciting new format in which ordinary members of the public with an exceptional talent team up and transform into some of the world’s biggest music icons
