BBC One has released new images of upcoming drama Life, created and written by Mike Bartlett (Doctor Foster).
The mini-series will see Victoria Hamilton return to her role from Doctor Foster, with her character Anna now going by the name ‘Belle’ as she seeks to rebuild her life as a Pilates teacher.
Adam James will also appear in the series, reprising his role as Belle’s now-ex-husband Neil.
Set in Manchester, the six-part series will tell the intertwining stories of the residents of a large house divided into four flats.
Dissecting where the ordinary meets the extraordinary, Life will explore love and loss, birth and death, revealing what happens when we take a step out of our personal space and into other people’s lives.
Having gained some stability in her life, Belle’s life is disrupted by the surprise arrival of her chaotic teenage niece, Maya (Erin Kellyman).
Alison Steadman (Gavin and Stacey) stars as Gail, a woman married to Henry (Peter Davidson) whose whole life is thrown into question just before she celebrates her 70th birthday.
Adrian Lester (Riviera) plays David, a man on the brink of temptation when he meets the exciting Saira (Saira Choudry) on holiday, despite being happily married to Kelly (Rachael Stirling).
Finally, Melissa Johns (Coronation Street) will play Hannah, a heavily pregnant woman happily coupled up with Liam (Joshua James). However, when Adam (Calvin Demba) reappears on the scene, a man with whom Hannah had a passionate one-night stand with nine months previously, her cosy life threatens to become completely upended.
Life will air on BBC One this autumn.
