Cush Jumbo, James Nesbitt, Richard Armitage and Sarah Parish to Star in Netflix's Upcoming Drama 'Stay Close'

Netflix has today confirmed a series order for the original drama series Stay Close based on the novel by Harlan Coben. Cush Jumbo, James Nesbitt, Richard Armitage and Sarah Parish will star in the series adaptation.

The series will follow three people living comfortable lives who each conceal dark secrets that even the closest to them would never suspect - Megan (Jumbo), a working mother of three; Ray (Armitage), the once promising documentary photographer, now stuck in a dead-end job pandering to celebrity obsessed rich kids; and Broome (Nesbitt), a detective who's unable to let go of a missing person's cold case. Lorraine (Parish), an old friend from Megan's past, delivers some shocking news which will impact on all three characters. As the past comes back to haunt them, threatening to ruin their lives and the lives of those around them, what will be their next move?

Coben is writing the series alongside Danny Brocklehurst and Richard Fee. They will executive produce with Nicola Shindler, Juliet Charlesworth and director Daniel O'Hara. Red Production Company will produce.

"I am so happy and excited to Stay Close (pun intended) with Danny Brocklehurst, Nicola Shindler and Richard Fee - the same team that made The Stranger, Safe and The Five," said Coben. "And talk about a dream-come-true cast - Cush Jumbo, an incendiary and awesome talent; Jimmy Nesbitt, a legendary actor I always wanted to collaborate with; and wow, Richard Armitage back again! Netflix has been a wonderful home, and from what I've seen so far, Stay Close will be our most gripping and binge-able series yet."
