"Peaky Blinders" star Sophie Rundle is set to star opposite actor Martin Compston in BBC One's new thriller show "The Nest".
Described as an "emotional thriller about love and money", the five-episode show attempts to explore the "price of being able to buy whatever you want".
Nicole Taylor, the writer of hit British drama "Three Girls", has penned the show.
Rundle and Compston play a wealthy couple, Emily and Dan who are crazy about each other and live in a huge house in a beautiful location just outside Glasgow. However, their lives are incomplete without a baby and they have been trying for years.
"Through a chance encounter they meet Kaya (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 was it really by chance?" the show's official plotline on the BBC website read.
The series will also feature Shirley Henderson, Katie Leung, David Hayman, Fiona Bell, James Harkness, Bailey Patrick, Kate Dickie, Paul Brannigan and Samuel Small.
"I am overjoyed to be filming in my hometown of Glasgow with a cast I have long dreamt of writing for. Martin, Sophie, Kate, Shirley, James, David...
"They've all been chatting away in my head for years as I've been writing (unbeknownst to them), so I could not be more proud that they have agreed to join 'The Nest' and make these characters real," Taylor said in a statement.
Andy de Emmony will direct the first three episodes, while Simen Alsvik will helm the remaining two.
Studio Lambert is producing the show for BBC One.
Susan Hogg, Simon Lewis and Nicole Taylor for Studio Lambert and Lucy Richer will executive produce besides Taylor.
"The Nest" will start production next month in Glasgow, UK.
