Based on real-life events, One Day Like This also counts Georgia Henshaw (Waterloo Road) and Lewis Rainer (Dani's House) among its cast.
The drama - to air on BBC Three in 2013 - dramatises the events surrounding a fatal car crash which devastated a small town in England.
One Day Like This is based on extensive interviews and research and tells the story of the collision from the point of view of the people involved.
Star Parkinson is best known for playing Sian Powers on ITV soap Coronation Street between 2009 and 2011, while Loveless - who played Naomi in the third and fourth series of Skins - has recently appeared on BBC Three's horror drama The Fades and in episodes of Wallander and Good Cop.
Henshaw previously starred as Madi Diamond on Waterloo Road from September 2011 to October 2012, while Rainer's past credits include roles on Grange Hill, Holby City and DCI Banks.
