It’s the families last week in LA but before they go, they must meet a very special visitor Jessie. He has exactly the same condition as Harvey and Katie and Peter are overwhelmed to meet him and his mum, Peter in particular is in tears at seeing what he thinks Harvey will be like in 4 years time.

Next day, Katie and Peter are training for their final run before the marathon, they have to complete 18 miles and limp towards the finish line. After training, it’s time to take Harvey to the doctors and whilst Peter plays with him, Katie tells manager Claire what the doctor said, how he is doing really well and how may cases there are like Harvey.

It’s late at night and Katie and Peter are packing up their mansion, they both reflect on the trip, Katie is looking forward to getting back to England but Peter has loved it and is sad to be leaving. The next day the kids are flying home, Katie and Peter have a lot of errands to run but on the way they get a phone call to say that Junior and Princess won’t be released from their last day at nursery until mum and dad pay up. A furious Peter gets on the phone and demands they be released and is thrilled to see them when they get home, getting in some quality family cuddling time. However Junior wants chocolate and nearly convinces Peter to give it to him when he gets caught by the nanny who has forbidden it, leading to a huge tantrum.

With the kids flying home in a matter of hours, Katie and Peter have a trailer for the show to record but it all goes very wrong when one of the them farts and no-one is owning up, leading to a row. It’s the final day in LA, the kids have gone home and Katie and Peter are doing the final packing – Katie hits on a novel way of clearing up, burning it and tries to goad Peter by telling him she’s burnt his stuff. On there way to the airport, the tensions increase.

Recreational sex, recreational drugs, random murder.

The three R’s – Trinity University style.

From Roughcut TV, Ash Atalla’s (The Office, The IT Crowd ) new production company, comes Trinity, a brand new drama for ITV2. Set in the gothic, oak panelled halls of residence and lecture theatres of the fictional Bridgeford University, Trinity College, the 8 part series will bring a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘first term nerves.’

Starring Charles Dance (Starter for Ten, Fallen Angel), Claire Skinner (Outnumbered, Life Begins, Life Is Sweet), Christian Cooke (Demons, Echo Beach/Moving Wallpaper) Reggie Yates (Dr Who, Grange Hill) Antonia Bernath (St Trinian’s) and Isabella Calthorpe, (Harley Street, How to Lose Friends and Alienate People) going to college has never looked so good. Or been so dangerous…

For over 900 years, Trinity has been an elite playground solely for the über rich and powerful. However for the first time in its long and illustrious history, Trinity is about to throw open its doors to students from, well, the lower social classes.

Two weeks before Charlotte Arc (Antonia Bernath) is due to go to University to study medicine, her father, Richard Arc is found dead in mysterious circumstances. Formerly a professor at Trinity, Richard left the institution suddenly and with no explanation. Convinced he was a changed man, and certain his death is linked to his abrupt departure, she enrols, determined to uncover the truth.

As Charlotte and her fellow students settle in, they begin to realise that all is not what it seems at Trinity. Beneath the glossy, glamorous veneer of wealth and privilege lurks a much darker world, one governed by strict codes of conduct, secret societies such as the mysterious Dandelion Club and the whims of a select group of over privileged students used to getting their own way.

Into the closed world inhabited by the likes of languid, spoiled and manipulative Dorian (Christian Cooke), his stunning, emotionally cold cousin Rosalind (Isabelle Calthorpe) and the arrogant and sinister Professor Maltravers (Charles Dance) comes a new order. From the streetwise and fiercely intelligent Theo (Reggie Yates), total stoners Angus (Mark Wood) and Raj (Arnab Chanda) to the progressive new female Warden (Claire Skinner), along with Charlotte, these new arrivals threaten all that Trinity has stood for.

With change sweeping through the elite academic institution, those traditionally protected by the old order find themselves increasingly exposed. And as Charlotte begins to unravel the mystery of her father’s death, she realises that Trinity’s ancient halls of learning and those charged with protecting the secrets within, aren’t about to give them up without a fight.

TRINITY is a Roughcut TV production for ITV2, commissioned by Laura Mackie, Director of Drama for Zai Bennett, Controller of ITV2.  The series is Executive Produced by Ash Atalla. It is produced by Sue Howells (The Bill, Casualty Drop the Dead Donkey) is written and devised by Robin French (Man Stroke Woman, Roomates, Roomies) and Kieron Quirke (Roomates, Roomies, The Armstrong and Miller Show), is directed by Colin Teague (Dr Who, Torchwood), Stephen Woolfenden (Echo Beach, Harry Potter ), Declan O’Dwyer (Being Human, Wire in the Blood, Robin Hood), is 8 x 1 hour and filming starts in Summer 2008.

Zai Bennett says: “Hot on the heels of the phenomenal success of Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Trinity is set to further cement ITV2’s growing reputation as the place to see dynamic, sexy home grown dramas.  Breaking a host of gorgeous, up-and-coming new talent alongside great established names, the heightened world of Trinity is a place I’m sure our viewers will want to spend time in.”

Ash Atalla says:
“Trinity is a high octane, ball breaking drama. It’s full of casual sex, casual drugs and casual murder. What more could you ask for? I’m very excited to be making it and it’s great to be working with the good people at ITV2.”
