"Detective Ember Manning (Coleman) must work out how it connects to a podcast journalist investigating a missing persons cold case and an illicit ‘love’ triangle between a man in his twenties and two underage girls," reads the synopsis.

"But as Ember gets close to the truth, it threatens to destroy her life – forcing her to re-evaluate everything she thought she knew about her past, present and the town she’s always called home."

The Jetty's writer, creator and executive producer Cat Jones said: "I’m thrilled to have such an amazing cast join Jenna Coleman in The Jetty.

"It’s been incredibly exciting to see my characters being brought to life by such a talented group of actors."

Whilst teased as a thriller the show also promises to ask "big questions about sexual morality, identity and memory, in the places that Me Too has left behind."

The Jetty will air on BBC.
