ITV has released a series of first-look images from their upcoming bomb disposal squad thriller Trigger Point, starring Adrian Lester (Hustle) and Vicky McClure (Line Of Duty).
Trigger Point is set in contemporary London and focuses on the Bomb Disposal Squad. Known as “Expo”, officers risk their lives daily on ‘the long walk’ towards danger. Death is always just a heartbeat away. The series follows front line officer Lana Washington (McClure), who is an experienced bomb disposal operative, known as an ‘Expo’ and Joel Nutkins (Lester), who works alongside her.
Both ex-military, the pair are close, having served together in Afghanistan. When a terrorist campaign threatens the capital over the summer, the Expos are at the forefront of urgent efforts to find out who is behind the bombings before fatalities escalate. Rounding out the cast is Mark Stanley (Honour), Warren Brown (Luther), Kerry Godliman (After Life), Cal MacAninch (Des), Manjinder Virk (Midsomer Murders) and Ralph Ineson (The Capture).
