The UK broadcaster and international streaming service are set to air the eight-episode drama from The Missing writers Harry and Jack Williams this spring. The series is produced by the Williams’ All3Media-backed Two Brothers Pictures.
Filming took place in South Africa, Wales and Rotterdam in the drama, which sees the The Only Boy Living in New York star play Georgia Wells, who has cut herself off from her previous life and is no longer the woman she once was. After seeing her “late” husband on the news, she is pulled back to face the world and will stop at nothing until she gets the truth about her past. Described as an emotional, gut-wrenching thriller, The Widow will take Georgia into the depths of the African Congo where danger and revelation will greet her at every turn.
The Widow will premiere on ITV in the UK and on Prime Video in the U.S. and more than 200 countries and territories. The series is produced by Eliza Mellor (Liar), directed by Sam Donovan (Humans) and Olly Blackburn (Donkey Punch), and distributed globally by All3Media International.
