The drama sees the Line of Duty writer join forces once again with actress Keeley Hawes, who plays an ambitious Home Secretary with a bodyguard (Richard Madden) whose political beliefs couldn’t be further from her own.

In the newly released footage, Bodyguard looks set to be just as intricate and action-packed as Line of Duty – with a political edge.

Bodyguard, which also stars Game of Thrones actor Madden and Line of Duty’s Gina McKee, will air in six parts and will arrive “soon” on BBC1.
