Based on the best-selling novel by Nicci French (the pseudonym for the writing partnership of journalists Nicci Gerrard and Sean French), WHAT TO DO WHEN SOMEONE DIES is the story of Ellie Manning, a young wife who struggles to uncover the truth behind her husband's death, after he dies in a late night car crash with a strange woman in the seat beside him. This plot-twisting mini-series stars Anna Friel (Limitless, Pushing Daisies) as "Ellie Manning" and Marc Warren (Hustle, Band of Brothers) as "Greg Manning." The mini-series is directed by Tim Fywell (Mistresses, Waking the Dead, Inspector Lewis).
