Production begins on ITV drama
ITV has announced further casting for the second series of Prey, as filming begins in the North West.
New cast added to Chris Lunt’s three-part drama is, Myanna Buring (Banished), Nathan Stewart-Jarrett (Misfits), Ralph Ineson (Game Of Thrones) and Sammy Winward (Emmerdale), who will be joining previously announced stars Rosie Cavaliero who will reprise her role as DS Susan Reinhardt and Philip Glenister.
Also joining the cast are Kieran O’Brien (Silk) and Lisa Millet (Cucumber).
Ralph Ineson will play Reinhardt’s boss DCI Mike Ward. Philip Glenister takes on the role of Prison Officer David Murdoch whose life becomes complicated when on a routine visit to a Manchester hospital with female prisoner Jules Hope (Buring) events spiral out of control. David takes a phone call which will change his life forever and suddenly sees him on the wrong side of the law.
With the life of his heavily pregnant daughter, Emma (Winward), threatened, David has no alternative but to go ‘on the run’ and inadvertently becomes ‘the prey.’
Unaware of the danger to Emma, DS Susan Reinhardt, whose personal happiness seems forever blighted, tries to unravel why David is suddenly behaving totally out of character. With his reputation as a prison officer intact, Reinhardt attempts to unravel why he makes every effort to strenuously dodge the Police.
In some amazing chase sequences, Reinhardt and her new colleague, DC Richard Iddon (Stewart-Jarrett) go in pursuit as in desperation David handcuffs himself to Jules. She is his only bargaining tool as he sets out to move ‘heaven and earth’ to find his beloved daughter.
Prey is made by RED Production Company and will be filmed in Manchester, Salford and Blackpool.
