Our House – itv’s new thriller adaptation drops an intense trailer

Posted Filed under

The show, an adaptation of the best-seller by Louise Candlish, is due to air in March. 

Back in July, we reported on the casting for itv’s Our House.

Based on the novel of the same name, it stars Tuppence Middleton (War and Peace) and Martin Compston (Line of Duty, Vigil) as estranged husband and wife Fi and Bram Lawson. Joining them is Rupert Penry-Jones (Spooks, Whitechapel) as the enigmatic Toby.

Additionally, the cast includes Weruche Opia (I May Destroy You) as Fi’s best friend and neighbour Merle and Buket Komur (Honour) as the mysterious and alluring Wendy.

Here’s the premise for Our House:

Fiona Lawson arrives home one day to find strangers moving into her house. With all her family’s possessions and furniture nowhere to be seen, Fi believes there’s been a huge mistake and insists her home isn’t for sale. With events spiralling beyond her control, her panic rises as she can’t reach her estranged husband, Bram.

As she reflects upon the safe space in which she and her family had made a life together, Fi begins to peel back the layers of her relationship and discovers her husband has disappeared. With her life shattered, she realises the secrets and lies have only just begun. Intertwining the present day with flashback scenes of Fiona and Bram’s life together, their separation and their new relationships with Toby and Wendy, Our House gradually unravels unexpected secrets and shocking revelations, culminating in a nail-biting finale.

Now there’s a trailer, providing a taste of the intense drama:

Our House is adapted by screenwriter Simon Ashdown for Red Planet Pictures. Sheree Folkson (Bridgerton, American Horror Story) directs, with Tom Mullens (Endeavour, Poldark) as producing. Ashdown and Belinda Campbell are executive producers.

The show is set to land on itv and itv Hub in March. You can check out the original press release here for some of the actor’s comments at the time of casting and, naturally, we’ll keep you posted.
