The series is produced by ShinAwil (Dancing with the Stars Ireland, Miss Scarlet and the Duke) and Canada’s Incendo (Be Mine Valentine, Terror Train).

Clean Sweep starring award-winning actress Charlene McKenna (Bloodlands, Peaky Blinders, Vienna Blood), has been licensed by ZDF Studios to the UK’s BBC Four and BBC iPlayer as well as SBS TV in Australia who will be launching the series on SBS On Demand on 1st June. The deals were brokered by Yi Qiao, Director Drama at ZDF Studios, who only recently has sold the series to TV4 for Sweden and MTV3 Finland.

Clean Sweep, which premiered on RTÉ in Ireland and on Sundance Now in the US this year, tells the story of a seemingly ordinary housewife, Shelly Mohan (Charlene McKenna), a mother of three married to a Garda detective. On the surface all seems normal until her dark past comes back to haunt her. Shelly makes the fatal decision to kill her former partner in crime when he resurfaces and threatens to expose her, and it’s her husband who is assigned the job to find the killer. The pressures mount as the noose tightens and all the while she is also coping with her husband’s unfaithfulness and an ailing son.

The first episode had an average of 315,500 viewers across RTE One and RTE One +1.

“Clean Sweep is a gripping psychological thriller,” said Sue Deeks, Head of BBC Programme Acquisition. “BBC viewers will be hooked by Shelly, and how she copes with all of the repercussions of her secret life.”

Yi Qiao, Director Drama, ZDF Studios added: “I am absolutely delighted to see Clean Sweep making its way around the world starting with the UK, Australia and Scandinavia. I cannot wait for audiences to follow Shelly’s journey and to wonder about how far they would go to protect their family."

Clean Sweep was created by Gary Tieche (Preacher, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Medium). ZDF Studios is the exclusive international distributor.
