John Simm goes on the run in ITV’s Prey

ITV has just announced a new three-part drama Prey starring John Simm.

The star of The Lakes, Life on Mars and more recently Mad Dogs and The Village has been cast to play Detective Constable Marcus Farrow, who finds himself in the bizarre situation of having to go on the run after being found at a horrific crime scene in the newly commissioned series.  

Filming of the three 60-minute episodes is due to begin in Manchester in October and is a John’s debut in a lead role in an ITV drama.

“Chris Lunt is a very talented writer and we are delighted to have his debut serial on ITV,” says Steve November, ITV’s Director of Drama. “He has created extremely vivid characters in Prey and we are very excited to have John Simm in the lead role.”
