Ridley is inspired by real life retired detectives re-joining police forces in a consultancy role.
The series is touted by ITV as “exploring thought provoking crime stories in an original and distinctive way”.
Ridley’s first series will be four episodes long, and each episode will last for two hours.
The series will introduce viewers to charismatic ex-detective Inspector Alex Ridley, who has retired from the police force after years of dedicated service due to his health concerns and grief after losing his wife and daughter.
Ridley’s replacement is DI Carol Farman his former protégée whom he mentored for many years.
When he’s enlisted by Carol as a police consultant on a complex and compelling murder case, the investigation takes a dark and unexpected twist.
Turning to her old mentor for support, Carol is keen to access Ridley’s unique insight into crime-solving which has served them so well in the past.

Line of Duty’s Adrian Dunbar takes on the lead role in Ridley as the namesake hero, retired Detective Inspector Alex Ridley.
He is an accomplished homicide detective whose career has been cut short as he’s been nudged into retirement after a 25-year career, a move he’s not overly happy with.
Speaking to ITV about the role, Adrian said: “I don’t think I’ve ever headed into a production with more excitement and enthusiasm.
