May 2020 The Nest is BBC’s biggest new drama launch of the year

The Nest launched with an impressive average of 9 million viewers, making it the biggest new BBC drama launch of the year so far. All3 International has sold the series to AMC-owned Acorn in the USA and to several other territories.

Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, said, “We are so proud that Nicole Taylor’s brilliant BBC One thriller gripped the nation with its powerful and provocative storytelling, attracting such a wide and diverse audience.

The characters at the heart of the drama were brilliantly acted by Sophie Rundle, Martin Compston and newcomer Mirren Mack – and we can’t thank them enough alongside producers Studio Lambert, for making such a memorable series.”
