The first look at BBC One's new thriller The Nest is here

The presence of Line of Duty's Steve Arnott is one of a number of things this has going for it.

The Nest, BBC's new five-part drama from Nicole Taylor, stars Martin Compston and Sophie Rundle as Dan and Emily, a couple who are just crazy about each other.

They live in a huge house in a beautiful location just outside Glasgow and want for nothing. All that’s missing is a baby - and they’ve been trying for years.

Through a chance encounter they meet Kaya, played by Mirren Mack, an 18-year-old from the other side of the city whose life is as precarious at theirs is comfortable.

When Kaya agrees to carry their baby, it feels like they were meant to meet, but it isn't long before they begin to question if they really met by chance.

Who is Kaya and what has brought her to this couple? Can the dreams of Kaya, Emily and Dan be fulfilled, or have all three embarked on a relationship of mutually assured destruction?

The Nest is described as an emotional thriller about love and money and the price of being able to buy whatever you want.

Shirley Henderson, Katie Leung, David Hayman, Fiona Bell, James Harkness, Bailey Patrick, Kate Dickie, Paul Brannigan and Samuel Small also star in the series.

An official release date hasn't been released just yet, but based off the trailer, we're keeping our fingers crossed that it will be sooner rather than later.
