Kin, the brand new eight-part Irish drama, has been acquired by International streaming service AMC+ including rights for North America, Australia, New Zealand, Iberia, Latin America, and the UK.

The deal was negotiated by Davoli Davoli on behalf of BRON Releasing. The eagerly anticipated home-grown Irish drama, which will be broadcast on RTÉ One and RTÉ Player this autumn, has also been pre-sold in Scandinavia to on-demand service Viaplay.   

Kin, which is currently filming in Dublin, boasts a stellar Irish and international cast lead by breakthrough Irish actress Clare Dunne (Herself), Charlie Cox (Daredevil), Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones), Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones), Sam Keeley (The Cured), Emmett Scanlan (Peaky Blinders), Maria Doyle Kennedy (Outlander), and newcomer Yasmin Seky. 

The series is written and co-created by Peter McKenna (The Last Kingdom, Red Rock) who is also showrunner/executive producer, and co-created by Ciarán Donnelly (Altered Carbon, Vikings).    

James Flynn (Vikings, Into the Badlands) and Morgan O’Sullivan (Penny Dreadful, The Tudors) are producing through their Metropolitan Films banner, with Emma Fleischer as supervising producer and Edmund Sampson as line producer. Dermot Horan, David Crean, and Shane Murphy are Executive Producers for RTÉ, Andrew Byrne for Screen Ireland, and Fredrik Lundjburg, Nanna Mailand and Filippa Wallestam are Executive Producers for NENT Studios.    

Kin underlines the unbreakable bonds of blood and family as it charts the lives of a fictional Dublin family embroiled in a gangland war and the consequences of their choices. The series’ local storyline, talented Irish cast, and shooting location adds it to the growing ranks of strong and prestigious television series coming out of Ireland. It is directed by Diarmuid Goggins (Bulletproof) and Tessa Hoffe (Wayne).  

"RTÉ is delighted to be working with Bron Studios to bring this quality Irish series to viewers in the autumn. We are also proud that this homegrown drama with a wealth of Irish talent is set for the international stage,” said Jim Jennings, RTÉ's Director of Content.

Produced by BRON Studios and Headline Pictures, in association with RTÉ, Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group), and Creative Wealth Media, the eight-part drama was made with support from Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI).

 “We hope that the viewers in Ireland enjoy what BRON and Headline have produced, that we have made an Irish show that is authentic in every way, and that they will be able to watch Kin for many years to come,” said Executive Producer and President of BRON Studios' Television’s David Davoli. “It’s only fitting that the AMC+ will now carry this show to the international stage." 

Andrew Byrne, Screen Ireland’s Television Project Manager added: “We are delighted to see quality Irish drama and talent take centre stage once again. We continue to focus our investment in high-end tv drama that resonates for audiences locally and globally and builds robust international partnerships for the benefit of the Irish creative screen sector into the future.” 

Executive Producers on the series are BRON Studios’ David Davoli (The Defeated, Bag of Bones), Samantha Thomas (Jessica Jones, Daredevil), Steven Thibault (Pieces of a Woman, Capone), and Aaron L. Gilbert (Bombshell, Joker, Fences), Headline Pictures’ Christian Baute (Man in the High Castle, Funny Games), Laurence Lenica and Frank Calderon, and Donnelly.
