The first trailer has been released for BBC One’s new investigative drama, New Blood.

Starring Mark Addy (Atlantis), Anna Chancellor (The Hour), Ariyon Bakare (Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell), Kimberley Nixon (Fresh Meat), Mark Bonnar (Shetland) and Aiysha Hart (Atlantis) alongside newcomers Mark Strepan and Ben Tavassoli, the seven-part series is written by Foyle’s War creator Anthony Horowitz.

New Blood follows two junior investigators as they come together against a new breed of criminal – the uber-rich and powerful corporations, individuals and governments who hide behind legitimate facades.

Episode 1 airs at 9pm on Thursday 9 June on BBC One.

Writer Anthony Horowitz commented last year: “When I created a hero who was Polish/British and another who was Iranian/British, I never expected that we’d actually find the real thing but with Mark and Ben we’ve done exactly that. They really are the ‘new blood’ that the title promises and I’m confident that they’re going to make a wonderfully surprising and entertaining team.”
