Emmy Award winner and Golden Globe nominee, Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife, The Fall), and renowned actor, Jack Davenport (Pirates of the Caribbean, Smash), star in Mammoth Screen’s fast-paced family thriller, Next Of Kin.
The contemporary drama follows whip-smart doctor Mona Harcourt (Panjabi) who lives in London with political lobbyist husband Guy (Davenport). When a bomb goes off in London on the same day that her brother, Kareem, is abducted and murdered in Pakistan, Mona’s charmed life is shaken to its core. The situation escalates when Mona realises that her brother’s son Danish – known as Danny – has vanished from university and is being linked to both the bombing and the murder of his father. With the family facing accusations and becoming embroiled in a tangled web of betrayal and conspiracy, Mona finds herself confronted with the ultimate dilemma: how far would you go to keep your family safe?
Created by BAFTA-nominated Paul Rutman (Indian Summers, Vera) in his first collaboration with author and wife, Natasha Narayan, the series is directed by Emmy Award and BAFTA Award-nominated Justin Chadwick (Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, Bleak House).
Starring: Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife, The Fall), Jack Davenport (Pirates of the Caribbean, Smash), Navin Chowdhry (Star Wars, The End of the F***ing Word) and Shabana Azmi (The Good Karma Hospital, 24: India)
