The Following Events are Based on a Pack of Lies will air at 9pm on 29th August 2023 on BBC One and a new episode will then air weekly. The full series will be available to stream on BBC iPlayer from 29th August.
The Sister Pictures series, co-directed by Robert McKillop and Nicole Charles, focuses around two women, Alice Newman (Rebekah Staton) and Cheryl Harker (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) and conman Rob Chance (Alistair Petrie).
The official synopsis reads: "This is the story of two very different women and the conman they have in common; a dark, funny and unpredictable thriller about three remarkable characters trapped in a tangled triangle of epic proportions.
Alice is a formidable PA, a single mother, and a lifelong Madonna fan. Cheryl is a bestselling fantasy author who, recently bereaved, now lives alone with her toy poodle Goblin. Rob is an eccentric and celebrated ecopreneur... who may or may not be trying to destroy them both."
