'Too Good to be True' (2024) | Psychological Thriller | Channel 5

A four part limited series commissioned by Channel 5, produced by Story Films UK. Starring Allen Leech (Bohemian Rhapsody, The Imitation Game, Downton Abbey), Kara Tointon (Mr Selfridge, Urban Myths, Archie), Charlie Hodson-Prior (Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical) and Taj Atwal (Trying, Line of Duty, Hullraisers).

'Too Good to be True' follows the story of hard working, single mother Rachel and her young son Liam. She works all hours of the day as a cleaner to give him the best life she can, but it's a struggle. One day, her boss at the cleaning agency is approached by a businesswoman who says she’s acting for an extremely wealthy client called Elliot. Her client wants Rachel to come and clean for him exclusively. Better pay, less hours – it sounds too good to be true. Elliot’s behaviour towards Rachel and Liam becomes increasingly odd, controlling even. When suspicions are raised, Rachel starts to dig into his past, uncovering a dark and disturbing story from his childhood that sets off a nail biting game of cat and mouse.

All episodes directed by Megan K. Fox, produced by John Wallace. Available to view now on My5 (UK only)
