In true Jed Mercurio fashion – this series is executive production by the Line of Duty creator – ‘Payback’ kicks off with a shocking death that throws an individual’s life into chaos and points to a larger conspiracy.
Lexie Noble is left devastated when her husband is stabbed to death on the street, with more turmoil to come as it emerges he was involved in covering up financial crime.
The ITV synopsis reads: “With an idyllic family lifestyle in the suburbs of Edinburgh, Lexie is unaware her husband, Jared, has been laundering Cal Morris’ illegal earnings on a vast scale.
Jared’s every move is being monitored by financial investigators DC Jibran Khan (Prasanna Puwanarajah) and DCI Adam Guthrie, who are determined to use the Noble family to bring Cal Morris to justice.
A partner in Jared’s business, Lexie is forced into working for Cal, at the same time as the police net inexorably tightens. Soon Lexie finds herself walking a treacherous tightrope between Cal and the police in which her safety, and even her life, are in grave danger.”
Payback premiers on ITV1 at 9pm on October 4th
