IFTA winner Ned Dennehy (An Klondike) is to appear in Jimmy McGovern’s new landmark six-part BBC One drama ‘Broken’ alongside actors Sean Bean (Game of Thrones) & Anna Friel (Tomato Red)

‘Broken’ is described as a “State of the Nation Piece”. The new drama tells the story of a Catholic priest Father Michael Kerrigan (Sean Bean), who presides over a Northern urban parish.
