MAJOR NEW INVESTIGATIVE DRAMA FROM THE AWARD-WINNING ANTHONY HOROWITZ

Anthony Horowitz

New Blood is a bold and surprising 7 x 60′ crime thriller created and written by Anthony Horowitz, made by Eleventh Hour Films.

Commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Controller BBC One and Ben Stephenson, Controller BBC Drama, New Blood sets out to show a unique side of modern London, through the eyes of two outsiders.

Anthony Horowitz says: “For a long time I’ve been wondering how to take a fresh approach to crime drama and I hope that with New Blood I’ve succeeded. This is a show about the so-called Y generation – young people starting out in their careers, the powerless against the powerful. It’s so refreshing to be writing about two central characters who are still in their late twenties and 21st century London is the perfect setting. Ben Stephenson has been hugely supportive and I’m delighted to be back at the BBC.”

Junior investigators Stefan and Rash, who work for two different law enforcement divisions, are brought together by two seemingly unrelated cases.

Rash and Stefan are opposites in almost every way. What they do share are the same frustrations with life – underpaid, unappreciated and undermined. Lumbered with huge university loans, they can’t afford to buy a house and have little or no job security. They are both British but not part of the establishment.

New Blood will see Stefan and Rash come up against the uber rich and powerful – corporations, individuals, governments and the new breed of criminals who hide behind legitimate facades and are guarded by lawyers.

As Stefan and Rash’s friendship is cemented across the series they come to understand that by quietly pooling resources and combining their different skills they make a formidable crime solving force. And at the same time they might be able to help each other up the promotional ladder – if they don’t get themselves fired along the way.

Jill Green says: “This is Eleventh Hour Films first BBC Drama commission so it’s an exciting moment – and thrilling to be at the helm of a brand new Horowitz crime drama that truly embraces multicultural London with a really fun ‘bromance’ at its heart.”

Charlotte Moore, Controller BBC One says: “I’m thrilled to welcome Anthony Horowitz back to the BBC. In New Blood he has created a contemporary crime series that will take BBC One viewers into a modern and complex world, one that moves the genre into exciting new territory.”

Casting to be announced in due course.
