Olivia Cooke (House of the Dragon), Laurie Davidson (Mary & George) and Waleed Zuaiter (Gangs of London) also head the cast of this suspenseful family drama about the collapse of the bond between a mother and son.

Laura (Wright) wants for nothing. She has a glittering career, a loving husband, Howard (Zuaiter), and, above all, she has Daniel (Davidson), her precious only son. But Laura’s seemingly perfect life is blown apart when Daniel brings home Cherry (Cooke), the girlfriend who changes everything.

After an uncomfortable first meeting, Laura grows convinced that Cherry isn’t who she says she is. While no one else can see what she sees, Laura refuses to stand by and watch Daniel be deceived. She’ll do anything to protect him. As things go from bad to deadly, the question is, is Cherry a manipulative social climber? Or is Laura paranoid and possessive? The truth is a matter of perspective…

The series is produced by Imaginarium Productions and Amazon MGM Studios. The producer is Caroline Norris.

It is executive produced by Jonathan Cavendish, Robin Wright, Will Tennant, Phil Robertson, John Zois, Dave Clarke, Gabbie Asher and Michelle Frances, and written by Gabbie Asher and Naomi Sheldon, with episodes written by Marek Horn, Ava Wong Davies, Isis Davis and Helen Kingston.
