New BBC Northern Ireland police drama, Hope Street
Co-commissioned by BBC Northern Ireland, BBC Daytime, and BritBox North America, new local serial police drama Hope Street will air on BBC One NI on Wednesday, November 24th at 7pm.

The 10-part series, filmed in Donaghadee, Co. Down, was made with support from Northern Ireland Screen. Set in the fictional town of Port Devine on the Northern Ireland coast, the weekly drama will focus on the town’s police department and the mysterious arrival of English Detective Constable

Leila Hussain, played by Amara Karan (The Night of), the first Muslim police officer in the town’s history. With each episode featuring a self-contained crime story, the series will also follow the ups and downs of those working in the police department as they deal with everyday policing in the beautiful seaside town.

In the first episode, the sudden arrival of English Detective Constable Leila Hussain in picturesque Port Devine sets tongues wagging. Duty Inspector Finn O’Hare, played by Ciaran McMenamin (Primeval), knows the real reason Leila’s been transferred, but he’s keeping it to himself.

The ensemble cast features actors Brid Brennan (Brooklyn) as Concepta O’Hare, Des McAleer (The Crown) as Barry Pettigrew, Kerri Quinn (Coronation Street) as Sergeant Marlene Pettigrew, Broadway star Rachel Tucker as Siobhan O’Hare, Niall Wright (6 Degrees) as PC Callum McCarthy, Aaron McCusker (Shameless) as Clint Dunwoody and Niamh McGrady (The Fall) as Nicole Devine.

Hope Street is created by Susanne Farrell (Dirty God) and Paul Marquess (London Kills), written by Farrell, Jess Lea (Eastenders), Christine Murphy (Emmerdale) and Stuart Drennan (Hollyoaks), and exec produced by Donna Wiffen (The Bill) and Paul Marquess for Long Story TV. 

The series will air first on BBC One Northern Ireland, followed by BBC Daytime and Britbox North America in the new year.
