London, Oct 15 (PTI) Popular British star Sheridan Smith will play the lead role in ITV network's upcoming show 'No Return'.
The gripping drama series hails from Danny Brocklehurst, who most recently wrote Netflix hit 'The Stranger', ITV said in a statement.
Smith is best known for featuring in shows such as 'The Royle Family', 'Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps', 'Gavin & Stacey' and 'Benidorm'.
She will play Kathy, a mother who leads her family on a vacation to Turkey, where an idyllic break quickly unravels when their 16-year-old son is arrested after attending a local beach party.
