Posted Filed under

A one-minute trailer has been released for ITV’s new mini-series about the rise to fame of Cilla Black.

Starring Sheridan Smith as the Liverpudlian singer, the three-part drama begins at 9pm on Monday 15 September on ITV.

Written by Jeff Pope (Lucan, Philomena, Mrs Biggs), Cilla will capture “the essence of 1960s Liverpool, the atmosphere of promise and excitement as the Merseybeat music scene was on the verge of exploding in a blaze of tight-fitting skirts, stiletto heels, and beehives”.

Cilla‘s cast also includes Aneurin Barnard as Cilla’s husband Bobby, Ed Stoppard as Brian Epstein, John Henshaw as Cilla’s father and Melanie Hill is Cilla’s mother.
