Channel 5 has kicked off its 2021 original drama slate with the commission of a new four-part series, Intruder. Intruder (4 x 60) will be produced by Clapperboard Studios Ltd, the scripted sister company to Chalkboard TV, >>>
The drama follows affluent, high-flying married couple Rebecca and Sam, whose idyllic lives are shattered after a break in by two local teenagers, Tommy and Syed, at their luxurious coastal house. Family Liason Officer Bailey becomes embroiled in the ensuing investigation, with those involved heading down a dangerous path of cover-up, corruption and murder in a “gripping, edge-of-your-seat thriller.”
Elaine Cassidy (No Offence, Fingersmith) plays Rebecca; Tom Meeten (The Ghoul) her husband Sam; Helen Behan (The Virtues, Elizabeth is Missing) their friend and confidante Angela; Pauline Quirke (Birds of a Feather, Broadchurch) is Bailey, whilst television newcomers Adam Richardson and Sonny Poon Tip are Tommy and Syed respectively.
