Bodyguard: trailer for new drama from Line Of Duty creator

We’re very much looking forward to this one. Bodyguard is the new drama from Jed Mercurio, best known now for creating and writing Line Of Duty.

He’s back working with Keeley Hawes on this project too, as she plays the British Home Secretary. Richard Madden, meanwhile, is her bodyguard.

The drama is set to arrive on BBC One later this year, and the BBC has released a first look trailer to give us a taste of it…

The accompanying blurb to the trailer simply reads “The threat is closer than you think… Bodyguard, coming soon to BBC One. From the makers of Line of Duty. Starring Keeley Hawes and Richard Madden”.

Mercurio has started work on Line Of Duty series 5, too. That’s not due on our screens until 2019, though.
