A new teaser trailer for the Paul Mescal-starring thriller series The Deceived has been released with the show from Derry Girls creator Lisa McGee and writer and actor Tobias Beer due on Virgin Media One and Channel 5 later this year. 
 
The Deceived is described as "a compelling, sinister narrative of lust, manipulation and betrayal".

Filmed in Belfast, The Deceived tells the story of Ophelia (newcomer Emily Reid), a student who "falls in love with her timelessly attractive and charismatic, but married college lecturer, Dr Michael Callaghan (Emmet J Scanlan, Peaky Blinders, The Fall)".

Things take a tragic turn with Ophelia then "trapped in a world where she can no longer trust her own mind". Normal People star Mescal plays Sean, who helps Ophelia to try to put the pieces together.

The cast also includes Catherine Walker (Resistance, The Delinquent Season), Eleanor Methven (Derry Girls, Little Women) and Ian McElhinney (Game of Thrones, Derry Girls).
