A first look trailer has been released for ‘The Tower II: Death Message’ which airs on ITV1 and ITVX this August.
Gemma Whelan (‘Game of Thrones’) and Jimmy Akinbola (‘Kate and Koji’) join this acclaimed crime drama based on Kate London’s thrilling second novel, produced by screenwriter Patrick Harbinson (‘Homeland’, ‘Fearless’, ’24’, ‘ER’) for Windhover Productions, Films & Screen.
Alongside Whelan as DS Sarah Collins and Akinbola as DC Steve Bradshaw is Tahirah Sherif, recently BAFTA-nominated for her role as PC Lizzie Adama, alongside Emmett J. Scanlan as DI Kieran Shaw.
The series opens with Lizzie returning to Farrow Station. Her boss and ex-boyfriend DI Kieran Shaw (Scanlan) partners her with Arif Johar (Michael Karim). Their first call is to file a domestic violence complaint against Mark Brannon (Charlie Palmer Rothwell), who is accused of beating his girlfriend Georgina Tell (Rosa Coduri) and terrorizing their young son Skye.
She convinces Georgina to tell the truth about what Brannon did to her, allowing Lizzie and Arif to capture him. But when the case comes to Georgina’s testimony in court and the cross-examination does not go according to plan, it leads to tragedy, leaving the case on a knife’s edge.
‘The Tower II: Death Message’ comes to ITV1 and ITVX in August
