Revenge

E4 at 9:00pm (Other show times...)

Revenge

From the makers of Twlight, comes this new US drama. Meet our heroine, Emily Thorne, who is the newest arrival in the Hamptons this summer. By all appearances, she's a friendly and sophisticated "girl next door," whose disarming charm and generosity allow her seamless access to Hampton's high society.

But the affluent, exclusive world she's immersed herself in is tied to a dark family history, and Emily Thorne is anything but what she seems. When Emily was just nine, her father was framed for a horrific crime by neighbours he trusted, and was sentenced to life in prison. Emily never saw her father again and spent her childhood consumed by rage, loss and betrayal. 17 years later, she has returned under an assumed identity with one endgame - revenge.

In this first episode, Emily rents the seaside home she once shared with her father and, with the help of her only friend, events planner Ashley, sets her sites on her first target and puts her carefully organised plan in motion. Her focus unexpectedly wavers when she comes across Jack, a friendly face from the past, makes a new romantic connection with the son of her sworn enemy, and is pushed into an uneasy alliance with the only person who knows her secret. Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny and Josh Bowman also star.
