Keira Knightley has been announced as the lead star for Black Doves, a new thriller series from Netflix.

Written by Joe Barton, best known for his work on Giri/Haji and The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself, Black Doves sees Keira play Helen, a woman with a secret identity who embarks on a passionate affair which will “endanger her carefully constructed web of subterfuge.”

After her lover is consumed by London’s “shadowy underworld”, Helen is given backup by her employers in the shape of Sam, with the pair going on the run against “a backdrop of diplomatic tension and Christmas” (via Variety).

The logline for the series reads: “Black Doves is the story of two old friends coming back together, finding trust in one another in a world where trust can get you killed and, ultimately, changing the course of each other’s lives forever.”

The announcement for Black Doves came during a huge press event for the streaming service’s UK base on Wednesday, with the headline unveiling being the sixth season of Black Mirror.

There is currently no release date for Black Doves.
