Prey. New drama starring John Simm - first look revealed | presscentre

Police Man, Family Man, Wanted Man.

ITV’s new high-octane three-part thriller, Prey, lead by BAFTA nominated actor John Simm.

A RED Production Company production for ITV.

Created and written by television newcomer Chris Lunt and directed by BAFTA winner Nick Murphy (The Awakening, Occupation, Blood) Prey follows the story of a man on the run, who is desperate to clear his name for the sake of his family.

Produced by Tom Sherry (Scott & Bailey, New Tricks, Murphy’s Law) and filmed on location in Manchester John plays Detective Sergeant Marcus Farrow, a well-liked copper who is wrongly accused and arrested for an inhumane crime.

Narrowly escaping police custody Farrow becomes an outlaw and begins a high-stakes game of cat and mouse across the city with Acting Detective Chief Inspector Susan Reinhardt (Rosie Cavaliero).

As a wanted killer, Farrow has few allies, however one thing is certain, for the sake of his family, Farrow is prepared to do things he never thought possible. And he won’t rest until he knows the truth.

Joining the cast alongside John Simm are Rosie Cavaliero, Craig Parkinson, Anastasia Hille and Adrian Edmondson.

John is one of those actors that I'll watch whatever he is in as there's a very high chance it's going to be great. Always loved his earlier BBC work.

Episode 2

Last night's episode would of gave Jack Bauer a run for his money. A cat & mouse thrilling chase that saw John Simm trying evade his pursers whilst trying to crack the case.

Did he really give up on everything the bridge or did he know exactly what he was doing...

I thought the writer of this watch The Fugitive too much, it was like a low budget tv version.

Everything on ITV after Mrs Biggs and Broadchurch is on the back foot and needs to be ace to get my praise.

This was OK, think my favourite John Sim piece is State of Play
