Adapted from Erin Kelly’s novel by Emilia di Girolamo (Law & Order UK), The Poison Tree is “a drama of human desires, betrayal and deception”.
The two 60-minute episodes will tell the story of a haunted woman, translator Karen Clarke, who will go to extraordinary lengths to protect her family and the secrets that she keeps from them.
The cast includes MyAnna Buring (The Twilight Saga) as Karen, Ophelia Lovibond (No Strings Attached) as Biba and Matthew Goode (Watchmen) as Rex.
Margaret Enefer, Head of Drama for STV Productions, commented: “We are thrilled to be bringing this dark and bewitching psychological thriller to life on screen for ITV1. We’re certain it will grip viewers from start to finish.”
Filming will begin this summer for transmission on ITV1 later this year.
