First look at new BBC Three drama Thirteen

My Mad Fat Diary star Jodie Comer (represented by Independent Talent) leads the cast in Thirteen, the first new series to come to BBC Three in 2016 since it moved online.

She stars as 26 year old Ivy Moxham  who escapes from the cellar that's been her prison for the last thirteen years. Returning home to her family and to her life, this is only the beginning of the story.

Aneurin Barnard (represented by The Artists Partnership) plays Tim Hobson, Ivy’s boyfriend and one of the people helping her rehabilitate herself as she re-enters society.

Thirteen explores how to pick up the threads of a life half-lived and how to survive as a family under the greatest pressure. How to feel again, chance love again. It is a psychological drama about who to trust when you can't even trust yourself. Ivy Moxam is a young girl. Ivy Moxam is a woman. Ivy Moxam is whoever you want her to be.

The cast also includes Kemi-Bo Jacobs, Melina Matthews, Chipo Chung, Colin Mace, Suzette Llewellyn and Charles Babalola.

The five-part drama is directed by Vanessa Caswill (My Mad Fat Diary, Flea) and China Moo-Young (Humans, Spotless) and written by Marnie Dickens.

The series was cast by Rebecca Wright.

Thirteen was filmed in and around Bristol. and will be available in late February on BBC3, and will be subsequently broadcast on either BBC1 or BBC2
