BBC One has commissioned a new five-part drama, The Nest, starring Sophie Rundle (Gentleman Jack) and Martin Compston (Line of Duty).
Created by RTS Award-winning writer Nicole Taylor (Three Girls), the emotional thriller focuses on wealthy couple Dan (Compston) and Emily (Rundle) who are head over heels in love and live a beautiful house just outside of Glasgow.
Their lives seem perfect, but there is one thing missing: a baby.
A chance encounter introduces them to Kaya – played by Mirren Mack in her television debut – an 18-year-old from the other side of the city.
Kaya's life is unstable compared to the couple's comfortable life of luxury, but when she agrees to carry their baby it feels like fate brought them together.
However, it seems Kaya meeting Dan and Emily was not all down to chance. All three want something out of this relationship, yet it may have set them on a dangerous path.
The Nest looks at the perils of mixing love and money and the real price of being able to buy whatever you want.
“Nicole Taylor is one of the most exciting and original voices in writing today, I’m chuffed we’re finally working together,” said Martin Compston.
“Combined with filming in Glasgow and going back onto BBC One in my native west coast accent makes it a dream scenario."
Nicole Taylor said: “Martin, Sophie, Kate, Shirley, James, David… they’ve all been chatting away in my head for years as I’ve been writing (unbeknownst to them!) so I could not be more proud that they have agreed to join The Nest and make these characters real.”
The rest of the cast includes Shirley Henderson (Happy Valley), Katie Leung (Strangers), David Hayman (Hatton Garden) and James Harkness (The Victim).
Filming for the series begins in Glasgow next month.
