Quiz tells the extraordinary and sensational story of how Charles and Diana Ingram attempted an ‘audacious heist’ on the quiz show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?.

Major Ingram, his wife Diana and an accomplice, Tecwen Whittock - who was sitting in the audience -  were accused of cheating their way to the million pound prize in 2001.

Just in case you're not familiar with the story, we're not going to go into too much more details - but based off the trailer, it looks like Quiz will definitely be worth watching.

The three-part drama is directed by globally renowned director, Stephen Frears and written by playwright, James Graham.
