ITV Announces Sheridan Smith To Get Clean Break

ITV has commissioned new six-part series, Clean Break, written and created by Mark Marlow, which will star Sheridan Smith (Cilla) as an ordinary working class woman caught between her role as a devoted and loving mum, and the dangerous world of insider trading.

Sam (Sheridan Smith) is an office cleaner on a zero hours contract who has an online gambling addiction. But she begins to realise that she has access to lucrative Stock Market information which could be the answer to all her prayers.

With her husband threatening to take custody of their two daughters, 14-year-old Alice and 8-year-old Lily, Sam is being backed into a corner and needs to come out fighting.

As her trusted band of cleaners gleans information while the rest of the world sleeps, Sam begins insider trading, but can she overcome her addictive personality?

Clean Break begins filming in London this autumn and will be directed by Lewis Arnold (Broadchurch).
