BBC reveal exciting new trailer for upcoming divorce drama The Split

BBC One have released a brand new trailer of their new female-led divorce drama The Split.

Starring Nicola Walker as Hannah (Last Tango In Halifax), Anabel Scholey (Being Human) and Fiona Button (Grantchester) as the three Defoe sisters, the series will follow them as they navigate the scandalous divorce scene whilst also dealing with their own personal family affairs.

The first trailer of the programme shows the characters navigating through the tricky world of divorce law. And it seems that they’ve got their fair share of personal issues too – from infidelity to, well, divorce!

Take a look at the juicy 40-second clip here…

The six-part show, which will air in 2018, has been described by the BBC as an ‘authentic, layered and witty exploration of modern marriage and the legacy of divorce’ – told through the stories of a family of female lawyers working in London’s busy divorce circuit.

Other additions to the impressive cast include Stephen Mangan, Meera Syal, Anthony Head, and Deborah Findlay. It’s thought that Stephen Mangan (Episodes), will play Hannah’s husband – but is their marriage a happy one? The trailer suggests otherwise…

“I’m delighted to be joining the Defoe family and walking in Hannah’s shoes as she picks her way through other people’s marriages and relationships, all the while questioning her own,” said Nicola Walker of the announcement.

Since the show’s writer, Abi Morgan, has a BAFTA and an Emmy under her belt, working on the likes of The Iron Lady and Suffragette, we’re sure this one will be another blockbuster.

BBC have also revealed that we don’t have long to wait for the series either. They shared that The Split will premiere on Tuesday 24th April at 9pm – just two weeks from now.

So set your reminders – because this is one drama you’re not going to want to miss!
