First Look: Billie Piper Stars in Funny and Full-On 'I Hate Suzie' Trailer

The first trailer for Billie Piper's upcoming TV series I Hate Suzie is here, and it looks like an amazing role for the former Doctor Who star.

Piper plays the title character, a fading actress who's plunged back into the spotlight when her phone is hacked and a photograph of her in "a compromising position" is leaked online.

The series has been co-created by Piper and writer Lucy Prebble, who also wrote Piper's post-Doctor Who series Secret Diary of a Call Girl. So if you liked that show, which ran for four seasons from 2007-2011, I Hate Suzie could be for you, too.

The cast also includes Daniel Ings (The Crown, Lovesick), Nathaniel Martello-White (Collateral), Leila Farzad (Twenty Twelve), Lorraine Ashbourne (The Crown, London Spy), and Phil Daniels (Vinyl, Quadrophenia). Prebble and Piper have described the series as a "strong, dark, fun tale," and you can watch the trailer below.

I Hate Suzie is due to air on U.K. network Sky later this year. There are no details yet on a U.S. home for the show, though given the talent involved, it's surely only a matter of time before it's picked up.
