Martin Clunes, Paul McGann and Hermione Norris are set to star in new two-part ITV drama 'A Mother's Son'

Martin Clunes is set to star in new ITV drama 'A Mother's Son'.

The 50-year-old actor will be joined by Hermione Norris and Paul McGann in the Chris Lang-written series, which will take place over two 60 minute episodes.

The story is set around the murder of a teenage schoolgirl in Suffolk and members of the community who are connected to it.

Revealing details of the story, ITV Drama Commissioning team member Victoria Fea said: "'A Mother's Son' is the story of an ordinary mother tormented by her suspicions and thoughts that her son maybe capable of murder.

"She's confronted with this terrifying dilemma and has to ask herself should she go to the police and give him up? She'll wrestle with this throughout what is a very compelling drama."

ITV Studios Executive Producer Myar Craig-Brown added: "Rosie is in turmoil by what she discovers - it's too awful to believe it could possibly be true. But as the evidence begins to stack up against her son, Rosie's turmoil worsens. Chris Lang has written a beautifully, compelling script and we're delighted Martin Clunes and Hermione Norris have agreed to play Ben and Rosie."
