Kate Beckinsale To Star In The Widow

Kate Beckinsale will star in the forthcoming ITV and Amazon Prime Video coproduction The Widow, written by Harry and Jack Williams (The Missing).

In The Widow, Georgia Wells (Kate Beckinsale) has her life turned upside-down when her husband, Will, is reported dead after a plane crash in the Congo.

Three years later, Georgia learns something shocking that takes her to Kinshasa in search of the truth about his disappearance.

Still haunted by the past, Georgia is grieving for the man she loved and the life they’ve lost, but she hasn’t given up hope.

Harry and Jack Williams said: “The Widow is our most ambitious and cinematic piece to date and we can’t wait to bring the dark heart of the Congolese jungle to the screen.”

The series will go into production in January 2018 in South Africa, Wales and Rotterdam. It will premiere on ITV before airing as an Amazon Prime Original in the US.
