Tom Hughes, currently starring in ITV’s Victoria, is switching over to the BBC for a new three-part drama series.
Hughes will star alongside Olivier Award-winning actress Denise Gough in Paula, described as a revenge thriller.
The story follows the fallout in a young chemistry teacher’s life, after her one-night stand with a good-looking but dangerous ducker and diver.
There is an instant, animalistic, spark of attraction before they become locked in a dance of mutual destruction. Only one can survive, but their actions will take a terrifying toll on all those around them.
The series is written by Conor McPherson. Filming begins in October so we should see the series sometime in 2017.
