Line Of Duty star Vicky McClure has signed a deal with ITV to create and star in a new drama.

The actress will also co-produce the programme, which will be set in Nottingham, the city where she grew up, the PA news agency understands.

The series is currently titled Redemption and is being made in conjunction with Left Bank Pictures, the makers of hit Netflix royal drama The Crown.

Last week Line Of Duty won the returning drama prize at the National Television Awards.

It saw off competition from shows including The Crown and Call The Midwife.
