The new BBC One series, which is set in Northern Ireland and supported by Northern Ireland Screen, is Executive Produced by Jed Mercurio, the mastermind behind ‘Line of Duty’ and ‘Bodyguard’.

Bloodlands, a brand-new original crime drama, will air on BBC One on Sunday 21st February at 9pm. The four-part series was filmed in and around Belfast and Strangford Lough.

The series was created by new writer Chris Brandon and produced by HTM Television (co-owned by Jed Mercurio and Hat Trick Productions), directed by Pete Travis (Omagh, The Go-Between) and produced by Christopher Hall (The Durrells, Critical).

Joining James Nesbitt (The Missing, Cold Feet) in the drama are Lisa Dwan (Top Boy, Trust), Lorcan Cranitch (Fortitude, The Dig), Charlene McKenna (Ripper Street, Vienna Blood), Ian McElhinney (Derry Girls, Game Of Thrones), Lola Petticrew (A Bump Along the Way, Dating Amber), Chris Walley (The Young Offenders, 1917), Michael Smiley (Luther, Death and Nightingales), Kathy Kiera Clarke (Derry Girls, The Pale Horse), and Susan Lynch (Happy Valley, Save Me).

Bloodlands follows his hunt for the legendary assassin known as “Goliath”, an explosive cat-and-mouse game where the stakes have never been higher.
