BBC Cymru Wales has announced that it has commissioned brand new crime drama The Pact - which it describes as having "a strong cast and gripping storyline" and predicts will be BBC Wales' "next highly anticipated hit".
Not a huge amount of detail has been announced at this point in regard to the plot, but we know the six-part series will follow "the story of five friends, a sudden death and a web of lies".
The series boasts an impressive cast.
Breaking Bad star Laura Fraser takes centre stage alongside Julie Hesmondhalgh (Broadchurch, Coronation Street) and Eddie Marsan (Ray Donovan).
Also starring are Aneurin Barnard (The Personal History Of David Copperfield, Dunkirk), Eiry Thomas (Keeping Faith), Heledd Gwynn (Ordinary Lies), Abbie Hern (The Twilight Zone), Aled ap Steffan (Gangs Of London), Jason Hughes (Midsomer Murders) and Mark Lewis Jones (The Crown), as well as Gabrielle Creevy (In My Skin).
BBC Cymru Wales Head of Commissioning Nick Andrews said: “The Pact is such an exciting commission for BBC Wales. It builds on our strong portfolio of impactful drama, and like Hinterland, Keeping Faith and Hidden before it, brings together the best in the business to do their best work. It’s a brilliant story and the strong cast and crew make this a highly anticipated series.”
The Pact is due to air in spring 2021.
