Anthony Horowitz’s new BBC One series New Blood will premiere on Thursday June 9th at 9pm, it has been announced.
New Blood tells the story of two young police investigators, Stefan (Mark Strepan) and Rash (Ben Tavassoli), who work for two different law enforcement divisions and are suddenly brought together by two seemingly unrelated cases. They soon find themselves coming up against the uber rich and powerful who hide behind legitimate facades and are guarded by lawyers.
The cast is being led by Mark Strepan (The Mill) and Ben Tavassoli (No Offence) and also includes Mark Addy (Atlantis, Game Of Thrones), Anna Chancellor (Fleming, Mapp & Lucia), Ariyon Bakare (Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Dancing on the Edge), Kimberley Nixon (Critical, Fresh Meat), Mark Bonnar (Line of Duty, Shetland) Aiysha Hart (Atlantis, Line Of Duty) and Dorian Lough (Peaky Blinders, The Smoke).
Foyle’s War creator Anthony Horowitz created New Blood, which is his first series for the BBC since Murder In Mind in the early 2000s and “sets out to show a unique side of modern London, through the eyes of two outsiders”. Independent production company Eleventh Hour Films is producing, with Horowitz, Jill Green and Matthew Read serving as executive producers. Eve Gutierrez is the series producer, while Anthony Philipson is attached to direct.
