BritBox has set the US premiere date for Northern Irish crime drama Blue Lights.
Set in Belfast, Blue Lights follows three new police recruits — Grace (Siân Brooke, Trying, Good Omens), Annie (Katherine Devlin, Vikings, The Dig), and Tommy (Nathan Braniff) — as the rookies learn the ropes in a high-pressure environment.
Forty-something Grace, the mother of a teenage boy, has made the decision to leave her steady job as a social worker and join the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI). Annie struggles with the fact that her chosen path means leaving everything she’s ever known behind. And Tommy is desperate to prove himself, despite being utterly inept at the practical side of frontline response policing.
All three are in their probation period with the PSNI, and the odds are at least one of them isn’t going to last. The pressures of dealing with divided communities and criminal gangs and struggling to know who to trust, all while wondering if they’ve made the right choice in joining the PSNI, are immense. And if they succumb to them, they won’t survive.
Renewed for a second season, the six-part first season costars Martin McCann (Marcella), Andi Osho (Payback), Richard Dormer (Cobra), and John Lynch (The Fall), amongst others.
Blue Lights, a BritBox Original, premieres in the US only with two episodes on Wednesday, January 17, 2024, exclusively on BritBox. New episodes will be released in pairs through January 31.
(Viewers in Canada can watch the series exclusively on BBC First Canada.)
