Sunday 30th October 2016
A squeaky clean detective's dark past comes back to haunt her in a brilliantly tense new home-grown thriller The Level. Set in Brighton this riveting series makes its way to ITV and is set for its home entertainment release courtesy of RLJ Entertainment's Acorn label this November.
Written by Gaby Chiappe (Vera, Lark Rise to Candleford) and Alexander Perrin (Leonardo, Shetland), and produced by BAFTA winning Hillbilly Television (Downton Abbey, Second Coming), this gripping six-part detective drama arrives on DVD on 14th November 2016.
The Level features a stand out cast of great British acting talent, including Karla Crome (Prisoner's Wives, Murder), Philip Glenister (Prey, Ashes to Ashes), Laura Haddock (Guardians Of The Galaxy, The Inbetweeners Movie), Noel Clarke (Brotherhood, Doctor Who), Robert James-Collier (Downton Abbey, Coronation Street), Lindsey Coulson (EastEnders, Casualty), Gary Lewis (Outlander, Silent Witness), Joe Absolom (Doc Martin, Eastenders), Amanda Burton (Waterloo Road, Silent Witness) and Ruth Madeley (Fresh Meat and BAFTA nominated for Don't Take My Baby).
Detective Sergeant Nancy Devlin (Karla Crome) has a secret double life. Her exemplary police career masks a covert attachment to shady businessman and drugs trafficker, Frank Le Saux (Philip Glenister), who she is inextricably linked to from childhood, as the father of her best friend, Hayley (Laura Haddock), and the father figure she herself craved.
Nancy has been playing a dangerous game to ensure that Frank always remains off the police radar, but she soon finds herself at the centre of an investigation which puts her at risk of exposure and sees her stalked by a killer intent on destroying her. Nancy's complicated love life and relationships with colleagues creates further tension as she doesn't know who she can trust... literally with her life.
The Level is unmissable British drama at its most enthralling.
