The Pact follows the story of four employees who are drawn into a pact of silence after their boss is found dead.

The synopsis for the series reads: “When a young brewery boss is found dead, a chain of events is triggered that draws four of his employees; Anna (played by Laura Fraser; Breaking Bad), Nancy (Julie Hesmondhalgh; The A Word, Broadchurch), Louie (Eiry Thomas; Keeping Faith) and Cat (Heledd Gwynn; Ordinary Lies) into a fragile pact of silence, bound by a secret that will change their lives forever.

“Anna’s police officer husband Max (Jason Hughes; Three Girls) investigates Jack’s (Aneurin Barnard; Dunkirk) unexpected death alongside his fierce superior DS Holland (Rakie Ayola; Noughts+Crosses), unaware that his own wife and her best friends are at the heart of a conspiracy.

“While brewery worker Tish (Abbie Hern; The Twilight Zone) becomes increasingly suspicious of her co-workers, Jack’s estranged father Arwel (Eddie Marsan; Ray Donovan) struggles to conceal dark family secrets.”

Describing her character, Fraser said: “I play Anna who is about to turn 40.

Also in the series is Eddie Marsan as Arwel and Jason Hughes as Max, alongside Aneurin Barnard and Gabrielle Creevy.

“He’s very passionate about his family and puts that above everything else. He cares a lot about the well-being of his wife and his kids.

“Then before he knows it, he’s been put on the case and is completely involved in finding out what happened.”
