The BBC has announced the return of The Syndicate for a transatlantic fourth series.
Writer Kay Mellor has penned another six episodes of the drama, which will follow the fortunes of staff at a dog kennels in Leeds.
Facing potential redundancy after the owners announce a takeover by a larger company, the team turns to the weekly lottery as a last resort, and win.
But will the syndicate receive their rightful winnings? Set between Leeds and Las Vegas, the kennel workers will be forced to spend every last penny in pursuit of them.
Kay Mellor said: "I’m thrilled to be working with the BBC again. As ever, it’s a brand-new Syndicate and has a fresh and unique transatlantic story.
“I couldn’t resist setting this series in a dog kennels either - they say you should never work with kids or animals but I’m a sucker for a challenge and can’t wait to get started,” she added.
President and Founder of Britbox, Soumya Sriraman, commented: “How do you improve one of Kay’s compelling cat-and-mouse stories? Simple, add dogs.
“I can’t wait for the BritBox community to experience this new world of Kay’s, grappling with contemporary concerns through the lens of her taut, thrilling plots.”
Airing first in the UK, the series will then premiere exclusively as a Britbox Original in the US and Canada.
