Vicky McClure posts first look at new thriller Trigger Point from Line of Duty boss Jed Mercurio

VICKY McClure has posted the first look at new thriller Trigger Point from Line of Duty boss Jed Mercurio.

The 38-year-old actress will play Lana Washington, an expert front-line officer in a bomb disposal squad called Expo.

Despite her experience, Lana is pushed to breaking point while dealing with a terrorist campaign targeting London.

Trigger Point has been created by Vicky's Line of Duty boss Jed's production company HTM Television, and written by newcomer Daniel Brierley, who he mentored.

The series was first announced in February last year, but Vicky finally gave her fans their first glimpse at her new project on Twitter on Monday.

Sharing a picture of the front of episode one's script, Vicky tweeted: "This has been waiting in the wings a while, great to read through with a brilliant cast today.

"Daniel’s written an amazing script & great to be back in business with
@jed_mercurio & @htmtelevision @itv #triggerpoint."

Jed retweeted Vicky's post and added: "Brilliant scripts, brilliant cast. Can’t wait to start filming Trigger Point for @ITV written by Daniel Brierley starring @Vicky_McClure."

The 55-year-old previously described Trigger Point as a "breathless thriller that will have viewers on the edge of their seats".

Meanwhile Vicky – who plays DI Kate Fleming in Line of Duty – previously said of her new role: "So grateful to be working with Jed again.

"I’m really looking forward to creating a strong, bright and troubled character in Lana Washington.

"Daniel Brierley has produced a brilliant and nail-biting script."
