Seven sets Bancroft for Monday

Seven has announced the new UK drama Bancroft will air on Monday nights.

The four-part drama series will air in double episodes over 2 weeks.

Sarah Parish leads the cast of Bancroft, a dark and compelling thriller, with a tortured female detective at its heart.

Created and written by Kate Brooke (Mr Selfridge, Ice Cream Girls, The Making of a Lady), leading actress Sarah Parish (Broadchurch, W1A, Cutting It) plays respected police officer DCI Elizabeth Bancroft, a woman with dark secrets in her past.
Ruthless and courageous, Bancroft is a brilliant copper. She has given her life to the police force. Consequently, she’s trusted and adored by her colleagues and promotion to Detective Chief Superintendent looks assured.
Bancroft is running an operation to bring down the pernicious and vicious Kamara gang. She adopts dubious methods, but the most violent brother, Athif (Amit Dhut), rules the local town with an iron fist, so it’s hard not to applaud her actions.

Produced by Phil Collinson (Midwinter of the Spirit, Coronation Street, Dr Who) and directed by John Hayes (Vera, Home Fires), Bancroft explores what happens when heinous crimes, long buried, come back to haunt us.

Bancroft double episode premieres  8:30pm Monday September 10 on Seven.
