New Channel 5 psychological thriller The Catch has revealed the cast line up.
Based on the novel of the same name by T.M. Logan, the four-part series introduces Ed Collier (Jason Watkins), a proud and happy father, husband and local fisherman who will do anything to keep his family together.
He finds his happiness threatened when the rich, handsome and young Ryan Wilson (Aneurin Barnard) begins a relationship with his daughter Abbie (Poppy Gilbert), threatening to break up the family unit.
Collier finds his life turned upside down as secrets and lies are exposed from all around, including his own past.
Desperate to protect everything he has achieved, Collier sets out to reveal the truth about Wilson before it’s too late.
The rest of the cast includes Cathy Belton, Brenda Fricker, Jade Jordan, Ian Pirie and Morgan Palmeria.
Jason Watkins commented: “I’ve always loved thrillers on screen and The Catch has all the ingredients to keep audiences hooked. Three-dimensional characters, a family unit under stress, with a tragedy at the heart – all brilliantly framed in the thriller genre.
“I’m always looking for parts I may not have played before and Ed is a person in extremis, trying to do what’s best. Failing and succeeding in equal measure.”
Filming on The Catch has begun, with the series due to air in winter 2022.
