Line of Duty star Martin Compston and Peaky Blinders star Sophie Rundle lead new Studio Lambert fictional thriller The Nest for BBC One. Penned by Nicole Taylor, the writer behind the Bafta-winning Three Girls, the five-part drama series will see the two at the heart of a surrogacy pregnancy drama. The story follows Dan (Compston) and Emily (Rundle), a solid couple who live in a huge house just outside of Glasgow (Compston will adopt his native Scottish accent for the drama). However, one thing is missing in their lives: a baby. Despite trying for years it just doesn't happen. Through a chance encounter they meet Kaya (Mirren Mack), an 18-year-old from the other side of the city, whose life is as precarious as theirs is comfortable. When Kaya agrees to carry their baby, it feels like they were meant to meet, but was it really by chance?
The series will explore who Kaya is and what brought her to the couple.
The Nest is an emotional thriller about love and money, and the price of being able to buy whatever you want.
