Finding Alice star Keeley Hawes has explained why the new show was an "unusual" filming experience.
Speaking to Digital Spy and other media, Keeley spoke about how coming on board as a producer with Simon also allowed her to actually help develop the character of Alice.
"We started talking about wanting to develop something together, Simon [Nye, co-writer and executive producer], Roger [Goldby, director, co-writer and executive producer] and I, as we came to the end of our lovely experience on The Durrells," she told us.
"And all of us, we have a great dynamic and wanted to continue that. So yeah, it's the second thing that my company has been involved with. It's still a little bit unusual to have an actor so involved in the development process. It's a hugely luxurious thing to have worked with Simon writing for me, more and more over the years.
"We did The Durrells, and having been directed by Roger, to have those people writing with me in mind, and knowing my strengths and my weaknesses, it was just so exciting because my voice was there from the beginning, and that's quite unusual and very luxurious."
Finding Alice will premiere on Sunday (January 17) at 9pm on ITV.
