SHERIDAN Smith fans can rejoice as Channel 5 just dropped a teaser trailer for her upcoming psychological thriller series The Teacher.
Sheridan is currently one of the most in-demand actresses in the UK after rising to fame in hit British sitcoms such as Gavin & Stacey, The Royle Family and Benidorm.
Now, the 40-year-old plays Jenna Garvey, a famous high school teacher with a tumultuous private life, in the new four-part Channel 5 drama.
The teacher sees Jenna accused of going to bed for one of her students, a young man named Kyle, after a bad night out at a local nightclub.
But with no recollection of the mentioned drunken evening, Jenna has only one hope to restore her good reputation: unearthing the truth about a traumatic event in her past.
Sheridan stars alongside Samuel Bottomley (Ackley Bridge) as the student at the center of a scandal that threatens to ruin Jenna’s life.
The stellar cast also includes Sharon Rooney of My Mad Fat Diary fame, former Emmerdale’s Kelvin Fletcher and Black Mirror’s Cecelia Noble as school employee Jenna.
The teaser trailer shows Jenna being asked by curious students what she got up after the school bell rang.
“What I do in my spare time,” she told them, “is none of your business.”
The cutscene Jenna throws back shots at the club before waking up, mindless, with a “report of inappropriate behavior” prompts police charges soon.
The principal issues the order for the stolen educator’s march, and she quickly finds herself hounded by the press and referred to as “paedo” by the locals.
And what does Kyle have to say about it all? Not much if the trailer is anything to skim through, so maybe the guy isn’t the innocent victim he claims to be.
Can Jenna get to the bottom of what happened? To find out, visit Channel 5 at 9pm, Monday, January 31 to Thursday, February 4.
