Story by Jack Foley

KATE Beckinsale is to star in a new ITV thriller called The Widow.

The Underworld star will play a woman named Georgia Wells, who finds out via a phone call that her husband of 10 years has died in a plane crash in the Congo.

However, three years later a shocking revelation prompts her to jet off to the Democratic Republic to discover the truth about what really happened to him.

The Widow is the latest series to come from the pens of Harry and Jack Williams, the writers behind Liar and The Missing.

They commented: “Kate Beckinsale is a brilliantly talented actress and we’re thrilled she’s joining us on this journey – we couldn’t imagine anyone more perfect for the role.

The Widow is our most ambitious and cinematic piece to date and we can’t wait to bring the dark heart of the Congolese jungle to the screen.”

The Widow is due to air sometime in 2019 on ITV in the UK.
