Ray Winston & amanda redman Jimmy roseITV have today confirmed, that Ray Winston will take on the lead role in The Trials of Jimmy Rose.

New Tricks actress Amanda Redman will also star alongside Winston as his wife, in the fourth coming ITV studios production.

The Trials of Jimmy Rose tells the story of the notorious armed robber, Jimmy Rose, who throughout his lifetime has made crime pay. A beautiful detached home on a small executive estate are the profits of his life of crime. But what Jimmy has gained in luxury goods, has undoubtedly come at an enormous cost to his family. And it’s a cost Jimmy hasn’t really bargained for.

The Trials of Jimmy Rose is a three-part drama written and created by Alan Whiting (Strike Back, creator and writer, Wire in the Blood, Half Broken Things), and will be directed by Adrian Shergold (Lucan, Mad Dogs, Dirty Filthy Love). Jane Dauncey (Law & Order: UK, Stella, Casualty) will produce the drama. Whilst Alan Whiting will write episodes one and two, Dom Shaw (Roman Mysteries, The Art of the Critic) writes episode three.

In a statement regarding the news of Winston castig he said,

Alan Whiting has created and written a gift of a role. I’m excited to be playing him and to be working with the great Amanda Redman. She’s such a fine actress, and together with Adrian Shergold and the production team, I’m sure we’ll be able to bring Jimmy and Jackie to life.”

The true life drama is set to commence production this November, with the cast being rounded out by Marion Bailey (Vera Drake, Persuasion) as Jackie’s sister, Sue Anderson and Paul Jesson (Coriolanus, Rome) as Jimmy’s right hand man and life long friend Roy who is married to Sue.
