Kicking off filming in Wicklow, Ireland, the three-part family drama is both created by and stars Suranne – and will follow two sisters (Jones and Best) who have grown apart over the years, but through tragic events learn to love and respect one another all over again. Maryland focuses upon the relationship between the sisters, who have been driven apart by complex family dynamics, becoming estranged and wrapped up in their own lives.

From ITV:

In Maryland, Anne-Marie introduces us to the characters of Becca and her sister, Rosaline, who have forged ahead with family lives and careers, growing distant through time and circumstance. But when the body of an older woman is discovered at sunrise on Laxey Beach in the Isle of Man, it brings devastating news for the sisters.

Each sister flies out to the Isle of Man to discover and repatriate the body of their mother, Mary, who they learn has been living a double life, leaving their father Richard at home in Manchester, whilst creating another world for herself….. Maryland.

Confined on the island with each other, the sisters can’t escape the ripple effect of their mother’s secrets and lies.

ITV Studios will be responsible for the international distribution of the drama.
