“A tale of psychological suspense, of guilt and ghosts and murder. Oh, and love. Always love. Our job is to make viewers want to sleep with the lights on. We’re looking forward to it.”

The synopsis for the series reads: “Nathan tries to do the right thing but he lacks direction and is carrying a long-buried secret that he is desperate to keep hidden.

“Having started a new life as a devoted married man, Nathan’s world is turned upside down when a ghost from his past, Bob (Bertie Carvel, Doctor Foster), turns up on his doorstep.

“Bob reveals some shocking news which has disastrous consequences and leads to a journey of psychological suspense, love and potential redemption.”

Alongside Russell and Bertie, the cast includes Amrita Acharia as Holly, Nina Toussaint White as Jackie, Paul Bazely as Graham, Simone Ashley as Elise and Amanda Root as June.

Talking about his role, Russell shared, "The Sister is going to challenge me as an actor more than I’ve ever been challenged before.

“As a web of lies, that he thought was dead and buried, comes back to haunt Nathan, he sinks deeper and deeper into the horror of the event that happened ten years ago."
