Sheridan Smith to star in Clean Break ITV Drama Series

Set in the contrasting worlds of shiny Canary Wharf and the realities of modern suburbia, Clean Break, explores how far Sam will go to survive, claw back some self-respect and get her life back on track.

Getting back to black is going to be tough and Sam is about to stake everything on the unpredictable world of the Stock Market.  With her trusted band of cleaners gleaning information while the rest of the world sleeps, and in the knowledge insider trading is against the law will Sam tread this dangerous line? Smart, and witty, can Sam overcome her addictive personality?

The series will be directed by Lewis Arnold from a script by Mark Marlow.Commissioned for ITV by Head of Drama Polly Hill, Clean Break will be filmed in the London area during the autumn of 2017.
