ITV’s New missing teens drama The Bay is coming and we think you’ll love it

Team the call came in 7 o’clock this morning mum went to wake them found their beds had not been slept in… mispers are Dylan and Holly… aged 15.

The new ITV drama The Bay centres around the disappearance of a 15-year-old twin’s Holly and Dylan.

The drama follows the team of detectives and the reaction from the local community and is set to be one of the best dramas of 2019.

The trailer already has viewers excited drawing comparisons to Broadchruch, and to be honest the trailer does look good.

Morven Christie plays DS Lisa Armstrong who starred in the BBC thriller The Replacement, she works as a family liaison officer assigned to a missing person case, but she will soon be aware of a personal connection with the family that could come at a cost to her.

Christie said  “Lisa is such a refreshingly real character – brilliant and flawed, trying to make everything work, and often failing. I adore her.

“And I loved the scripts, rooted in the families and community of this distinctive town.”

Sean Meredith who played the lead in BBC’s Robin Hood takes the role of the missing twin’s dad and goes by the name Jonas Armstrong he finds himself arrested as a key suspect in the disappearance of his own children.

He said “He has a reputation, which we come to learn about and is known around Morecambe for the type of guy that he is.”

Fans have already compared The Bay to Broadchruch based on the programme focusing on missing teenagers.

Taheen Modak, who stars in The Bay as DC Kharim, said: “We take a look at a crime from a different angle, not just looking at detective work but actually working with the families and making it more of a personal story.”

While Chanel Cresswell, who plays the twins’ mum Jess, added: “Jess’ relationship with Lisa is paramount to the success of the investigation and she has to trust the FLO. She needs Lisa to stay connected to her children so it’s a very interesting dynamic and not one that we’ve [seen] in a television drama this closely before.”

The Bay will air every Wednesday for six weeks, starting tonight at 9, and will be available to watch on the ITV Hub shortly after.
