ITV’s new stylish and compelling character drama, Breathless, created by Paul Unwin and Peter Grimsdale for ITV studios.
Produced by Jolyon Symonds, Breathless sports a star studded cast; Jack Davenport (Smash, Pirates of the Caribbean) is joined by Natasha Little (Kidnap and Ransom, Vanity Fair), Oliver Chris (One Man Two Guvnors, Green Wing), Zoe Boyle (Downton Abbey, Sons of Anarchy), Joanna Page (The Syndicate, Gavin & Stacey), Shaun Dingwall (Above Suspicion, Rock & Chips), Catherine Steadman (The Tudors, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen), Sarah Parish (Hatfields & McCoys, Monroe), Pippa Haywood (Mr Selfridge, Scott & Bailey) and Iain Glen (Game of Thrones, Prisoners Wives).
The series opens in 1961 following the lives of a group of doctors and nurses working in a London hospital, a world in which everything and everyone has their place. But underneath this veneer simmers a cauldron of lies, deceptions and guilty secrets, driven by love, ambition and sex.
