Philip Glenister to play lawyer for BBC
Story by Jack Foley
ASHES To Ashes star Philip Glenister is to return to the BBC to play a lawyer in a new four-part drama.
Undisclosed will see him teaming up with Poirot actor David Suchet for the conspiracy thriller.
Glenister, who shot to fame playing no-nonsense detective Gene Hunt in Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes, takes the lead as Harry Venn, a solicitor who takes on a case that is linked to his brother’s death 20 years earlier.
Suchet will play a barrister named Sir Nigel Fountain.
Commenting on the role, Glenister – who last appeared in Sky 1 HD drama Mad Dogs – said: “I am looking forward to shooting Undisclosed, which I feel is a bold, innovative, complex piece of drama from the pen of Ronan Bennett.”
The series, which also stars In Bruges actress Thekla Reuten, begins filming in Belfast shortly.
