New series Bloodlands to release on BBC One soon

James Nesbitt can soon be seen in the upcoming series Bloodlines. It is executively produced by the same team that was also behind Line of Duty and Bodyguard.

If you enjoy watching series such as The Bay (2019), Marcella and Line of Duty, Bloodlines is a series for you. With James Nesbitt in the lead, Bloodlands is a cat-and-mouse thriller with landscapes of Northern Ireland in the background. Jed Mercurio serves as the executive producer. He was also the creator of Line of Duty.

Bloodlands is a new thriller that follows DCI Tom Brannick. He tries to find the hitman who is known as Goliath after he found a potential suicide note. He connects the finding to a cold case that is also quite personal to him. James Nesbitt (The Missing) says that the viewer should be prepared to feel. “It is a cat-and-mouse thriller but the fact that it has the legacy of the Troubles brings an added depth to it," Nesbitt explains (photo).

"It’s also a story about a father and daughter, and of loss, so there are real human stories attached to it. At its key it’s really about relationships, I think it’s something that audiences will invest in, invest in the characters. But also, it is a classic Jed Mercurio thriller, where you’re not really sure what’s going on, with many different stories interwoven into it. I think it will keep viewers on the edge of their seats.”

Executive producer Mercurio adds: “Bloodlands is a contemporary thriller series with one foot in Northern Ireland's emotive past. The present-day hunt for a suspect opens up the cold case of a legendary serial killer, codenamed Goliath, who evaded capture during the Troubles.

In addition to being a gripping police thriller, Bloodlands explores the dilemma of whether seeking justice for Goliath's long-dead victims should jeopardise the fragile and hard-won peace of present-day Northern Ireland.”

It is not yet known when Bloodlands is set to premiere.
