Six-part thriller Next of Kin follows whip-smart GP Mona Shirani (Archie Panjabi) who lives in London with political lobbyist husband Guy Harcourt (Jack Davenport). Family life is shattered when Mona’s brother is brutally murdered whilst working for a medical charity abroad. As the death brings buried secrets to light, Mona’s family finds itself under suspicion, each drawn deep into a tangle of betrayal and conspiracy as they try to protect their loved ones and careers. Mona finds herself facing the ultimate dilemma: how far would you go to keep your family safe?
The major contemporary thriller is created by BAFTA-nominated Paul Rutman (Indian Summers, Vera) in his first collaboration with writer wife, Natasha Narayan, and will be directed by Emmy Award and BAFTA Award-nominated Justin Chadwick (Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, Bleak House).
Justin Chadwick said: “I was instantly hooked by Paul and Natasha’s gripping and intelligent script. This is a highly relevant and important story in today’s multicultural Britain, telling – from a domestic perspective – how a family can be ripped apart by events larger than themselves. I’m excited to be working with such stellar talent in Archie Panjabi and Jack Davenport, who are perfectly cast as a loving couple struggling with divided loyalties.”
