Cleaning Up will air in six parts on ITV in early 2019.
What is Cleaning Up about?
Created and written by screenwriting newcomer Mark Marlow, Cleaning Up centres around office cleaner Sam, a woman juggling life as a working class mother with her unlikely involvement in insider trading.
Sam is strapped for cash and has an online gambling addiction, but when she discovers she has access to valuable stock market information, she sees a way out of her money troubles.
ITV’s head of drama Polly Hill said: “It’s such a wonderful script that finds real humour and joy in the human struggle to survive. Sheridan is perfect for the role of Sam and I’m thrilled she’s returning to ITV to play her.”
Who’s in the cast?
Bafta-winning actor Smith – famed for her roles in Cilla and Mrs Biggs , to name a few – stars as Sam, alongside a cast including Jade Anouka (Trauma), Kirsty Philipps (Will) and Neil Maskell (No Offence).
Smith – who was last seen on TV screens in 2017’s Ratburger – is also set to star in forthcoming dramas Adult Material and Care.
