Deep Water is the brand new drama coming to ITV - from the cast to the start date, here's all you need to know.

Deep Water is described as "an emotional thriller set in England’s beautiful Lake District".

Set against the imposing backdrop of the Lake District, Deep Water is written by BAFTA-nominated Anna Symon (Indian Summers, Mrs Wilson) and adapted from the Windermere series of novels by critically-acclaimed author, Paula Daly.

Deep Water takes a modern look at families, the pressure of juggling busy lives, and is an exploration of what it means to be a ‘perfect’ mother.

Deep Water cast

The cast of Deep Water is led by award winning actresses Anna Friel, Sinead Keenan and Rosalind Eleazar. They play three complex and vibrant women, each struggling to keep their heads above very deep water.

Anna Friel plays mother of three, Lisa Kallisto, who juggles her hectic family life with running a business, which keeps her occupied at all hours.

Sinead Keenan plays physiotherapist Roz who once had a thriving private practice, but the debts run up by her soulmate Winston leave the family facing financial ruin.

Rosalind Eleazar plays Kate Riverty who seems to have it all - wealthy and attractive and with a well-drilled and highly organised family life, but is it possible Kate is too good to be true?

Deep Water spoilers

In the first episode tonight, among the epic scenery of lakes and mountains, we're introduced to three ordinary mothers. But, behind closed doors, each woman is struggling with extraordinary moral and ethical dilemmas.

Over-stretched, working mother Lisa Kallisto (Anna Friel) never lives up to the expectations she sets herself. Happily married to taxi driver Joe, she is mother to three kids and runs a dog kennels business.

But Lisa can’t help comparing herself to tiger mum, Kate Riverty (Rosalind Eleazar), who makes the best cakes, organises the best play dates, and is married to the handsome and wealthy Guy.

Lisa is delighted when Kate invites her to a dinner party, but the evening takes an unexpected turn when she meets Kate’s charming brother-inlaw.

Haunted by her transgression at the dinner party, Lisa throws herself into family life, determined to bury her guilt.

But she makes a further error when she forgets to pick up Kate’s teenage daughter, Lucinda, from school and the Rivertys place the blame firmly at her door.

Lisa’s friend, physiotherapist Roz Toovey (Sinead Keenan) Is stony broke and deep in debt due to the actions of her gambling addicted partner Winston. Desperate to protect her daughter Abby and keep a roof over all their heads, she works every hour she can.

But when bailiffs come knocking, her home is under threat, and her partner is nowhere to be seen, an offer of cash for sex from a wealthy client could be Roz’s only option.

Deep Water airs Wednesdays at 9PM on ITV.
