The serious plot of the drama revolves around Friend’s character – junior Government Minister James Whitehouse – being accused of raping a political aide with whom he had been having an affair, with Sienna playing his wife Sophie. 

The role of the aide, called Olivia, is thought to be played by Charlie Angels actress Naomi Scott, according to Recapped, but her role has not been officially confirmed.

The cast of the six-part series, which Netflix describes as ‘an insightful and suspenseful series about sexual consent and privilege’, also includes Downton Abbey actress Michelle Dockery as the high-flying prosecutor.
