Talitha Campbell, the arrogant daughter of a wealthy entrepreneur, is arrested following the disappearance of fellow student, Hannah Ellis, the hard-working daughter of a single mother.

From the makers of Vigil, Showtrial switches between both sides of the legal battle, as defence and prosecution fight for their version of what really happened to Hannah, and the truth about Talitha: Falsely accused? Or callous murderer?

The cast includes, Tracy Ifeachor, Celine Buckens, Sinead Keenan, Lolita Chakrabarti, Sharon D. Clarke and Kerr Logan.

Press Release
When Talitha Campbell, the estranged daughter of a wealthy property developer, is charged with conspiring to murder fellow university student Hannah Ellis, the trial that follows places victim and accused - and their families - in the eye of a media storm. Into that storm enters Cleo Roberts, the duty solicitor on the night of Talitha’s arrest. Refusing her father’s help, Talitha wants Cleo to lead her defence against a prosecution that is weaponising Talitha’s gender - as well as her social privilege - against her.

From arrest to verdict, Cleo and defence vie with the prosecution to convince us of the truth about Talitha: damaged scapegoat, or cold-blooded killer?

Showtrial explores how prejudice, politics and the media distort the legal process, in a timely legal drama full of dark humour.

Showtrial is a 5x60” series executive produced by Simon Heath for World Productions, in association with ITV Studios (Line Of Duty, Bodyguard) and Mona Qureshi for the BBC. The series producer is Christopher Hall (Bloodlands, The Durrells). ITV Studios are internationally distributing.

Showtrial is coming later this year on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
