Lisa Allen cast in new comedy thriller Passenger

North of Watford client Lisa Allen has been cast as ‘Jill’ in Andrew Buchan’s writing debut, six-part TV comedy thriller Passenger, opposite Wunmi Mosaku and David Threlfall.

Passenger is produced by Sister for release on ITVX and ITV before its international release on Britbox.

ITV Head of Drama Polly Hill said: “Passenger is a brilliant new drama that will premiere on ITVX and a show different to those on the main channel. Andrew Buchan’s brilliant scripts take us into a tight-knit northern community where the Detective Sergeant Riya Ajunwa, an outsider to the town, has to investigate the strange happenings that are genuinely monstrous.”
