What's it about?

The crime drama - which was written by newcomer, Daniel Brierley, and produced by Jed Mercurio's HTM Television (so let's face it, it's gonna' be good!) - focuses on the counter terrorism police and specifically, the Metropolitan Police Bomb Disposal Squad.

When a terrorist attack threatens London, Vicky (who plays officer Lana Washington) and Adrian Lester (who plays Joel Nutkins) must work together to uncover who is behind the bombings.

In a statement, ITV says the series "turns the spotlight on counter terrorism policing and the extraordinary work of the Metropolitan Police Bomb Disposal Squad... The Expos are at the forefront of urgent efforts to find out who is behind the bombings before fatalities escalate."

They added: "Under extreme pressure and searching for answers, Lana can't help but become suspicious that the bomber is premeditatedly targeting her unit.

"It's a terrifying thought, but against all odds how does she prove it and discover the bomber's real identity?"

Sounds so gripping, right?
