Injustice will star James Purefoy as William Travers, a criminal barrister whose belief in the justice system is beginning to waver. The series will be written by Anthony Horowitz, who previously penned car-crash drama Collision for the channel.
Unforgiven writer Sally Wainwright has also scripted new crime drama Scott and Bailey. Suranne Jones and Lesley Sharp will star as a pair of homicide detectives operating out of Greater Manchester's Major Incident Team.
The channel's third commission The Jury will focus on a group of everyday people who find themselves caught up in a controversial criminal re-trial. The project will be scripted by The Queen writer Peter Morgan and will enter production early next year.
ITV Director of Drama Commissioning Laura Mackie said: “Peter, Sally and Anthony are three of the finest British screenwriters and the quality of their scripts are attracting top flight acting talent.”
Director of Television Peter Fincham added: “These three new commissions, written by three of the UK’s most acclaimed screenwriters, join an impressive and varied range of drama for 2011."
