The BBC has released first look images of its new drama, Showtrial, which is set and filmed in Bristol.
The series, from the producers Line of Duty and Bodyguard, will air later this year, and new photos offer the chance to see the characters for the first time.
They show Talitha Campbell (Celine Buckens), the estranged daughter of a wealthy property developer, who is charged with conspiring to murder fellow university student Hannah Ellis.

The programme follows the trial that takes place, and the new images also show Cleo Roberts (Tracy Ifeachor), the duty solicitor on the night of Talitha’s arrest.

Refusing her father’s help, Talitha asks Cleo to lead her defence against a prosecution that she claims is weaponising her gender and social privilege against her, in a drama which explores how prejudice, politics and the media distort the legal process.
Showtrial was produced at the Bottle Yard Studios earlier this year and shot on location in the city.
