The trailer, which asks viewers ‘Do you have what it takes?’, features Louise Brealey, who plays Molly in BBC’s Sherlock, as the girls sinister economic lecturer, Jude McDermid.

In a chilling voice over, she says: “You already know you have got what it takes. Now you have an opportunity to prove it. We are creating a world where you can be the boss, not a victim. Do you have what it takes? Show me.”

According to writer, Jamie Brittain: “It’s about the different ways ambition plays out in young women at university, but it also goes to pretty dark places, having the characteristics of a psychological thriller”.
