ITV’s new drama series The Bay will premiere on Wednesday March 20th at 9pm, it has been announced.
The Bay is set in the unique coastal town of Morecambe and follows Detective Sergeant Lisa Armstrong, who is assigned to a missing persons investigation in Morecambe. As a police Family Liaison Officer, she’s trained never to get emotionally involved. Her job is to support families during the worst time of their lives whilst also to be the eyes and ears of the police investigation; a cuckoo in the nest. But there’s something very different about this particular case.
With horror Lisa realises she’s got a personal connection with this frightened family; one that could compromise her and the investigation. As she grapples to get justice for the grieving family, Lisa discovers it could come at the cost of her own. The drama series, which was created by Richard Clark and Daragh Carville, is produced by Tall Story Pictures and stars Morven Christie (The A Word, Hunted), Jonas Armstrong (Troy, Ripper Street), Tracie Bennett (Scott & Bailey, Coronation Street), Lindsey Coulson (Funny Cow, Bullet Proof), Chanel Cresswell (This is England ’90, Murdered For Being Different), Louis Greatorex (Last Tango in Halifax, Safe), Adam Long (Happy Valley, Peterloo), newcomer Taheen Modak and Daniel Ryan (Mount Pleasant, Black Sea).
