BBC First series ‘New Blood’ to premiere on OSN Play in Middle East
MUMBAI: Created and written by bestselling author and screenwriter Anthony Horowitz, ‘New Blood’ is a seven-part investigative drama from BBC First. It will premiere exclusively on the Middle East’s online viewing platform, OSN Play, from 15 September, two months ahead of its linear broadcast in the region.
Available at no cost to OSN subscribers and offering the convenience to watch anytime, anywhere via OSN Play, ‘New Blood’ is a crime series. It shows a unique side of modern London through the eyes of two outsiders, Stefan and Rash. As junior investigators for the Serious Fraud Office and the police, they are brought together by two seemingly unrelated cases.
Stefan and Rash 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 cannot afford to buy a house and have little or no job security.
‘New Blood’ will see them come up against the rich and powerful – corporations, individuals and the new breed of criminals who hide behind legitimate facades and are guarded by lawyers.
As their 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. At the same time, they might be able to help each other up the promotional ladder – if they do not get themselves fired along the way.
