Archie Panjabi And Jack Davenport To Be Next Of Kin

ITV has announced that new six-part thriller Next Of Kin, created by Paul Rutman (Indian Summers) in collaboration with Natasha Narayan, will star Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife) and Jack Davenport (Pirates of the Caribbean). Justin Chadwick (Bleak House) is on board to direct.

Next Of Kin follows GP Mona Shirani (Archie Panjabi) who lives in London with political lobbyist husband Guy Harcourt (Jack Davenport). Family life is shattered when Mona’s brother is brutally murdered whilst working for a medical charity abroad.

As the death brings buried secrets to light, Mona’s family finds itself under suspicion, each drawn deep into a tangle of betrayal and conspiracy as they try to protect their loved ones and careers. Mona finds herself facing the ultimate dilemma: how far would you go to keep your family safe?

Justin Chadwick said: “I was instantly hooked by Paul and Natasha’s gripping and intelligent script. This is a highly relevant and important story in today’s multicultural Britain, telling – from a domestic perspective – how a family can be ripped apart by events larger than themselves.”

Next Of Kin starts filming this April for four months in the UK and abroad.
