When Hannah's own mother – and boss – spurns her for a promotion, Hannah (Nicola Walker) tries to leave the family firm for a rival company, further fracturing relations between her and her sister Nina as they go head-to-head battling over the rights of a multi-millionaire couple in the midst of a sticky divorce. There's the wedding of a younger sister to deal with, plus the complications of an estranged father. This is The Godfather meets Suits.
Asking the complicated questions about the position of marriage and divorce in the modern world, The Split promises lots of tension and anger. Joining writer Abi Morgan (who won an Emmy for Outstanding Writer for a Miniseries for The Hour) is the director Jessica Hobbs who directed Emily Watson Apple Tree Yard last year, and the ITV drama Broadchurch. They are joined by Stephen Mangan and Grantchester actress Finoa Button. Bring on the drama!
