Get ready to fall hard for BBC One’s shocking new crime thriller

Here’s what you need to know about BBC One’s new crime drama, The Pact

If, now that Line Of Duty is over and done with, you’re looking for a gripping new TV show to get stuck into, then you’re in luck; BBC One has another must-watch crime thriller on the way.

Here’s what you need to know, then, about The Pact.

What’s the plot of The Pact?

Sounding ever so much like a Liane Moriarty novel (never a bad thing, as Big Little Lies fans will no doubt agree), The Pact follows the story of “five friends, a sudden death and a web of lies.”

The official synopsis for the six-part thriller reads: “When a young brewery boss is found dead, a chain of events is triggered that draws four of his employees – Anna, Nancy, Louie, and Cat – into a fragile pact of silence, bound by a secret that will change their lives forever.”

The Pact is a gripping, cinematic contemporary thriller written and created by Pete McTighe.

Sounds juicy, right?

Who stars in The Pact?

The Pact brings together a stellar team that has worked on some of the TV’s best-loved dramas, including Breaking Bad star Laura Fraser, who takes centre stage alongside Broadchurch’s Julie Hesmondhalgh.

What are people saying about The Pact?

The first commission for the Cardiff-based independent production company Little Door Productions, it’s little wonder that the thriller has captured the imagination of BBC heads already.

It builds on our strong portfolio of impactful drama, and like Hinterland, Keeping Faith and Hidden before it, brings together the best in the business to do their best work.
