There's a new drama on its way to BBC and if you're a Line of Duty fan then you're gonna' love it.
Hidden Assets is an international crime drama shot in Ireland and Belgium and stars Angeline Ball as Irish Criminal Assets Bureau detective, Emer Berry.
It begins with a routine raid led by Emer, which reveals that a small-time drug dealer has been receiving substantial funding from an untraceable source. But the funding isn't in cash, it's in rough diamonds.
The BBC explains: "When these diamonds are linked to a series of bombings in Belgium, Emer is forced to work with Police Commissioner Christian De Jong.
"Eventually banding together, they unravel a political conspiracy fuelling domestic unrest for financial gain; caught up in this web of greed are the Brannigans, a wealthy Irish dynasty with ties to Antwerp.
"Drawn into a battle of wits with the family, Emer, Christian, and the CAB team must follow the money to stop another terrorist attack – before it’s too late."
Sounds so gripping.
Alongside Angeline Ball, Wouter Hendrickx stars as Christian De Jong and Simone Kirby plays Bibi Melnick.
Sue Deeks, Head of Programme Acquisition, BBC said: "Hidden Assets is a satisfying blend of crime drama, political conspiracy and thriller. BBC viewers will be glued to their seats until the very end!"
The series is made up of six, hour long episodes - perfect for binge watching - and while there's no release date just yet, it's expected to arrive later this year.
It's not the only gripping new BBC drama on the horizon, either.
Inspired by the Harvey Weinstein case, Rules Of The Game is a four part thriller about 'sexual politics within the modern workplace' and stars Maxine Peake as Sam Thompson, a manager at a family-run business in the north of England.
The drama follows Sam as she arrives at work one morning and finds a dead body in the office reception. BBC explain how Sam is "forced to reckon with not only murky behaviour in the present, but murderous secrets from the past as well."
