Sam shared an announcement on Instagram 

The new series follows veteran detective, Danny Frater (James Nesbitt), who turns up at a hospital mortuary for what he thinks is a routine ID check only to find that the corpse is his estranged daughter, Christina (Imogen King), who appears to have taken her own life.

"He is forced to confront his own failings as a father whilst struggling to make sense of a mass of contradictory testimony and circumstantial evidence, and he must decide who, if anyone, is responsible for Christina's death and what he's going to do about it," reads the official synopsis.
