Having recently completed its run on BBC One, where it ranks as one of the channel’s top 10 programs of the year, The Nest is set to makes its debut on Acorn TV in the Americas this summer, thanks to a deal with all3media international.

The five-part thriller stars Martin Compston (Line of Duty, In Plain Sight), Sophie Rundle (Peaky Blinders, Gentleman Jack), and Mirren Mack (Sex Education).

Said Maartje Horchner, EVP Content at all3media international:

“We’re delighted to be announcing sales around the world so quickly on the The Nest, a premium primetime drama that we know will keep audiences hooked wherever it airs. A truly suspenseful thriller exploring love, trust and the cost of being able to buy whatever you want, The Nest features outstanding performances from Martin Compston, Sophie Rundle and newcomer Mirren Mack, alongside a skillfully layered story from the acclaimed Nicole Taylor. We look forward to confirming more deals globally as we continue to roll the drama out to our international buyers.”

Added Don Klees, SVP of Programming for Acorn TV at AMC Networks:

“After working with our friends at all3media international on two hugely popular series with the return of Miss Fisher and Blood earlier this year and the upcoming return of Welsh drama Hidden, we’re excited to work with them on this excellent new UK drama. With its first-rate ensemble cast and riveting script, The Nest is sure to thrill our subscribers across North and South America.”

Set in Scotland, The Nest centers on Dan (Compston) and Emily (Rundle), a wealthy couple who are crazy about each other, live in a huge house in a beautiful location just outside Glasgow, and want for nothing — except a child, which they have been trying for for years.

Through a chance encounter they meet Kaya (Mack), an 18-year-old from the other side of the city, whose life is as precarious as the couple’s is comfortable. When Kaya agrees to be a surrogate and carry their baby, it feels like this was meant to be. But was their meeting really by chance?

Produced by Studio Lambert and written by Nicole Taylor (Three Girls), the miniseries costars Fiona Bell (Blood), James Harkness (The English Game), David Hayman (Hatton Garden), Shirley Henderson (Happy Valley), Katie Leung (White Dragon), and Bailey Patrick (London Kills).

The Nest premieres in the US, Canada, and Latin America* starting Monday, July 13, exclusively on Acorn TV.

* Includes Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela.
