An all star line up joins award-winning actress Keeley Hawes in ITV’s new contemporary drama Finding Alice. The six-part drama created by Roger Goldby, Keeley Hawes and Simon Nye, and written by Roger and Simon focuses on Alice’s honest, raw, blackly comic journey of grief, love and life after the death of her partner Harry.

BAFTA-nominated Hawes (Honour, The Durrells, Bodyguard, Line of Duty) plays the role of Alice, and is joined by a star-studded cast including Joanna Lumley (Gangster Granny, Absolutely Fabulous) and Nigel Havers (Benidorm, Coronation Street) as Alice’s parents Sarah and Roger, and Jason Merrells (Agatha Raisin, Safe House) as her partner Harry.

Also joining the cast are Gemma Jones (Gentleman Jack, Unforgotten) and Kenneth Cranham (Hatton Garden, Bancroft) as Minnie and Gerry, Alice’s in-laws. Alongside the core cast is rising star Isabella Pappas (Paranoid) as Alice and Harry’s 16-year-old daughter Charlotte, Sharon Rooney (The Capture, No Offence) as Harry’s sister Nicola and Rhashan Stone (Keeping Faith, Agatha Raisin) as mortuary worker Nathan Johnston.

Episode 1

For Alice (Keeley Hawes), Harry (Jason Merrells) and their daughter, Charlotte (Isabella Pappas), moving into their new home should have been a dream come true. But it quickly turns into a nightmare when Alice discovers Harry dead at the bottom of the stairs. Harry designed the smart house, so it’s weird and wonderful, and one more disorientation for Alice on top of her sense of loss and abandonment. Alice’s beloved partner is no more, and now she can’t find the fridge. 

Family should be a source of comfort, but Harry’s parents, Minnie (Gemma Jones) and Gerry (Kenneth Cranham), keep popping round uninvited. Whilst Alice’s own parents, Roger (Nigel Havers) and Sarah (Joanna Lumley), only seem to add to her list of problems. 

With Harry gone and Alice struggling to cope, Charlotte is forced to bottle up her grief and be the responsible one. Especially when the police turn up asking questions about the night that Harry died. To make matters worse, more unexpected visitors start knocking on Alice’s door, and she begins to realise that Harry’s business debt wasn’t the only secret he kept hidden from her.
