Mathew Baynton ("Horrible Histories"), Tanya Franks ("Pulling"), BAFTA-winning Chanel Cresswell (This is England), Tamara Lawrance (King Charles III) and Claire Rushbrook ("My Mad Fat Diary") join as guest-stars.

Directed by Jessica Hobbs ("Broadchurch," "Apple Tree Yard," "The Slap") it was shot entirely on location in London.

"The Split" is the first new series from BAFTA-winning Jane Featherstone's Sister Pictures and is set to air in 2018 on BBC One and SundanceTV.

Created and written by Abi Morgan, "The Split" is produced by Sister Pictures for BBC One, co-produced with SundanceTV, and was commissioned by Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, and Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content. The series is executive produced by Sister Pictures Founder Jane Featherstone ("Broadchurch," "Humans," "River"), creator Abi Morgan ("River," Suffragette, "The Hour"), director Jessica Hobbs ("Broadchurch," "Apple Tree Yard," "The Slap") and Lucy Richer for the BBC, with Lucy Dyke ("Black Mirror," "Ripper Street") producing.
