Ray Winstone and Amanda Redman in New ITV Drama “The Trials of Jimmy Rose”

Ray Winstone and Amanda Redman will star in a new ITV drama called “The Trials of Jimmy Rose. In this three-part drama, an armed robber is encouraged to change his lifestyle for his own good. ITV dramas often have a lesson to be learned interweaved into their scrips, providing a good ‘moral’ of the story. Amanda Redman is excited about playing the new role and we know she’ll give her all to it.


The three-part series is written by Alan Whiting, who created Wire in the Blood, and will be directed by Adrian Shergold. It is produced by ITV Studios.

Winstone will play armed robber Jimmy Rose, who is trying to rebuild relationships with his family.

He said: “Alan Whiting has created and written a gift of a role. I’m excited to be playing him and to be working with the great Amanda Redman.”

It is being executive produced by Kieran Roberts, ITV Studios’ creative director of drama, who described The Trials of Jimmy Rose as a “warm, funny and compelling drama about a man with a criminal past who has to prove to his wife that it’s never too late to start over”.

It was commissioned by ITV director of drama Steve November and controller of drama, Victoria Fea.

Filming will begin in Manchester in November.

Amanda Redman is the mother of Emily from her marriage to the actor Robert Glenister. She is credited with having encouraged her then-brother-in-law, Philip Glenister, who played DCI Gene Hunt in Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes, to go to drama school and to pursue acting. She once desired more children, but after nine miscarriages and two ectopic pregnancies her hopes ended with menopause.

Having been together since 1999, Redman married the mobile-phone designer Damian Schnabel in September 2010. She is a supporter of Coventry City FC.

Redman was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2012 Birthday Honours for services to drama and charity. Source: Wikipedia
