Redemption is landing on ITV1 – and it might just become your latest obsession. Featuring a stellar cast that includes a few familiar faces, the six-part crime drama follows Liverpool-based DI Colette Cunningham after she learns that her estranged daughter Kate has taken her own life. 

Full of twists and turns, Colette is suddenly thrown into the deep end as she learns more about her daughter's mysterious life in Dublin, and is appointed the guardian of Kate's teenage children Cara and Liam, whom she never knew existed. Curious about who her daughter became, as well as the strange final month of her life, Colette sets out to uncover the truth behind her daughter's death, but of course, nothing's ever as it seems.
