ITV announces brand new season of Safe House

ITV announces brand new season of original event drama Safe House.

Hollywood star Stephen Moyer returns to the UK to take the lead role in a brand new season of original event drama Safe House.

Safe House, produced by leading independent production company Eleventh Hour Films, commences filming for ITV later this month with an all new cast and crime story.

The 4 x 60' series stars internationally renowned British actor Stephen Moyer (True Blood, The Bastard Executioner and the upcoming Fox drama series Shots Fired) as charismatic yet impulsive ex-police officer Tom Brook who runs a police safe house, which stands by the edge of the sea on the rugged coastline of Anglesey, a wild and beautiful sanctuary.

Stephen will be joined by actress Zoe Tapper (Mr Selfridge, Lewis) as his partner Sam. The drama is written by Ed Whitmore (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, He Kills Coppers) and Tracey Malone (Rillington Place), and directed by Marc Evans (Hinterland, Collision).

Tom and Sam's world is turned upside down when news of a shocking crime breaks. Years previously Tom investigated a series of abductions perpetrated by an assailant known as 'The Crow', who took wives away from husbands as they helplessly watched.

On hearing breaking news of a crime bearing the same hallmarks Tom immediately goes to the crime scene, revealing to the police that terrifyingly he believes 'The Crow' is active again.

Safe House also stars Dervla Kirwan, (Injustice, Blackout), Jason Watkins (The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies, The Secret), Sunetra Sarker (Casualty), Ashley Walters (Top Boy, Cuffs), Sacha Parkinson (Mr Selfridge, The Driver) and Joel MacCormack (Wolf Hall).

Eleventh Hour Films Head of Development Paula Cuddy (Strike Back, Wallander) will executive produce alongside company founder and Managing Director Jill Green (New Blood, Collision) and Andrew Benson (Strike Back, Prime Suspect) will produce the new series.

Filming begins in Wales, Liverpool and Manchester later this month.
