Deep Water tells the story of three women from the UK’s Lake District, who befriend each other at the school gates as their personal lives and dramas unfold.
The official synopsis reads: “The series focuses on the lives of three women, living in and around the beautiful surroundings of Windermere.
“It’s a modern look at family and the pressures we put ourselves under as we juggle busy lives.
“In striving to do their best for their families the women are capable of making some controversial choices in an attempt to hold everything together and keep their heads above deep water.
“The main characters are complex, vibrant women desperately juggling work and home life and coping with the issues raised by modern parenting.”
Polly Hill, head of drama at ITV, said: “Anna has cleverly woven together two of Paula’s brilliant novels, to create a wonderful modern and layered series.
“It’s about three very different women on their own incredible and often shocking journeys, whose lives connect at the school gates.
