Series overview
 
Multi-award winning actresses Anna Friel, Sinead Keenan and Rosalind Eleazar star in gripping, emotional thriller, Deep Water, from Kudos.
 
Set against the beautiful and imposing backdrop of the Lake District, the series is written by BAFTA-nominated Anna Symon (Indian Summers, Mrs Wilson) and adapted from the Windermere series of novels by critically-acclaimed author Paula Daly.
 
The six part series follows the lives of three complex and vibrant women, each struggling to keep their heads above very deep water. Like all of us, they seek to do their best for their families, but face tough choices with difficult, and often messy repercussions. The women are connected by the school gates, each with children around the same age.
 
International Emmy winning actress Anna Friel (Marcella, Butterfly) plays mother of three, Lisa Kallisto, who juggles her hectic family life with running a business, which keeps her occupied at all hours. Chaotic and disorganised, Lisa, is married to Joe who works night and day as a taxi driver.
 
Physiotherapist Roz, played by RTS award-winning and BAFTA nominated actress Sinead Keenan (Little Boy Blue) once had a thriving private practice, but the debts run up by her soulmate Winston leave the family facing financial ruin. If she can pay off their debts they will get their lives back on track. Roz is offered help from an unexpected quarter. The decision she makes could change the course of her life.
 
Kate Riverty played by Screen Nation Rising Star Rosalind Eleazar (Howards End, Rellik) seems to have it all - wealthy and attractive and with a well-drilled and highly organised family life. Mother to Lucinda and Fergus, and married to Guy, Kate invites her friend Lisa and husband Joe to dinner, but the evening goes spectacularly wrong for Lisa after she makes a spontaneous
decision.
 
With a stunning home overlooking Lake Windermere, Kate and Guy appear to be two of life’s winners, but is it possible Kate is too good to be true?
