‘Chernobyl’s’ Emily Watson is to front a psychological thriller for British broadcaster ITV.

The British actor is starring in ‘Too Close’, a mini-series from Snowed-In Productions, the sister company of Bronte Film and Television, which produces J.K Rowling dramas including ‘The Casual Vacancy’ and ‘Strike’.

Written by actress and author, Clara Salaman, the three-part drama is based on the novel of the same title under the pseudonym Natalie Daniels.

The 52-year-old ‘Red Dragon’ starlet plays a forensic psychiatrist appointed to work with a woman accused of a heinous crime but who claims she can’t remember a thing. It is the story of how two women become perilously close when fate forces them together.
