When is Cheat on ITV?

The drama will air in March 2019. The exact date has yet to be confirmed by ITV.

What is Cheat about?

According to ITV, “At the heart of the drama is the dangerous relationship between university professor Leah, and her student Rose, when, what begins as a seemingly open and shut case of academic deception, quickly spirals out of control, ending in fatal consequences, and triggering a devastating sequence of events that threaten to engulf them both.”

The psychological thriller will “keep audiences guessing from the start” as it explores “just how far we’re prepared to stand up for what we believe, and at what cost.”

Four-part miniseries Cheat is the work of screenwriting newcomer Gaby Hull, and is produced by Two Brothers Pictures with The Missing and Liar‘s Harry and Jack Williams serving as executive producers.
