A description of the show says: “A routine raid sees the Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) expose a link between a wealthy Irish family, a stash of rough diamonds and a series of deadly bombings in Belgium.”
“But nothing is as it seems as by-the-book Belgian Chief Inspector Christian De Jong and CAB Detective Emer Berry are thrown together in a heart-pounding race to halt a further horrifying terror attack in Antwerp.”
Speaking about the show, Simone Kirby said: “I was sent the scripts around Christmas and I immediately knew I wanted to be in it.”
“I think when you have women writing for women it’s great because the characters become a little bit more three-dimensional and they’re filled out a little bit more and all of the female characters in this are brilliant. They’re really strong, complex but vulnerable, interesting women.”
