Channel 5 has commissioned four-part drama The Catch, based on The Sunday Times bestselling author T.M. Logan’s novel of the same name. The series will be produced by Projector Pictures, in partnership with Night Train Media and All3Media International.

The Catch is a psychological thriller which will be adapted for the screen by Michael Crompton (The Holiday, Silent Witness, Safe House, Kidnap and Ransom) with Rachel Gesua, Suzi McIntosh and Trevor Eve executive producing for Projector Pictures and Herbert L. Kloiber and Olivia Pahl executive producing for Night Train Media. The series was ordered by Paul Testar, commissioning executive, Drama, Channel 5 and Paramount+.

Set against the coastline of the west of England, The Catch introduces us to Ed Collier, a proud husband, father and local fisherman determined to do whatever it takes to keep his family together. But when a rich, handsome younger man enters daughter, Abbie’s, life and threatens to take her away from him, Ed finds his life spiralling out of control.

Filming on the series is due to commence later this year.

Casting details will be announced in the coming months.
