New series from Derry Girls creator Lisa McGee

...but this one's a psychological thriller

Derry Girls creator Lisa McGee is to write a ‘contemporary psychological thriller’ for Channel Five.

The Deceived will air next year and is described as ‘a compelling, sinister narrative of lust, manipulation and betrayal’.

The plot is quite a shift from her acclaimed Channel 4 comedy. The central character is English student Ophelia, who falls in love with her married lecturer. When their affair results in a shocking and tragic death, Ophelia finds herself trapped in a world where she can no longer trust her own mind.

Filming will take place in Northern Ireland soon.
