Helen (Claudie Blakley), Jake (Russel Tovey) and Natalie (Lydia Leonard) already have fairly dysfunctional lives (although who hasn't?) but things are upturned further when their recently widowed mother Vivien (Francesca Annis) declares she's in love with a new man.
Their suspicions are heightened when Mark (Stephen Rea) sweeps Vivien off her feet, shifting her priorities away from her children.
Could this be the new Dirty John we wonder?
A too good to be true guy? Jealous grown up children? We have no idea if he is a con-man, mind.
Sounds like that's exactly what the kids might be thinking though.
ITV says of the programme: "With their large family home, inheritance and happy childhood memories all at risk, the siblings attempt to find out more about Mark.
"But will their long-buried grudges, complex relationships and complicated personal lives allow them to pull together?
"After all, our brothers and sisters can be our closest allies or our sworn enemies - often in the space of a heartbeat."
To top off all the intrigue, Vivien's neighbour, Mary (Imelda Staunton) is a little too attentive and unhealthily attached to the family. Is Mary the one we should be worrying about?
We guess we'll find out when the mini-series drops in February.
Writer Sarah Williams said of the drama: "There's a bond between siblings that was formed before we were fully conscious beings - something bone-deep and instinctual.
"No one can make us laugh as hard or wound us as deeply as our family - and that seemed to me incredibly rich territory for a drama."
Flesh and Blood is set to air on ITV in February - date tbc.
