Check out the very first clip from Hidden Assets, a brand new RTÉ drama starring Angeline Ball, Peter Coonan and Simone Kirby.

Beginning on Sunday, 7 November, brand new RTÉ drama Hidden Assets looks set to keep viewers glued to their screens as Detective Sergeant Emer Berry uncovers a drugs for diamonds criminal ring with ties to the Brannigans, a wealthy Irish family.

The six-part show is about "family, power and the corrosive effects of boundless greed" and the story moves between a small town in Co Clare and the diamond capital of the world, Antwerp.

A description of the show says: "A routine raid sees the Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) expose a link between a wealthy Irish family, a stash of rough diamonds and a series of deadly bombings in Belgium.

"But nothing is as it seems as by-the-book Belgian Chief Inspector Christian De Jong and CAB Detective Emer Berry are thrown together in a heart-pounding race to halt a further horrifying terror attack in Antwerp."

Written by Peter McKenna (KIN, Red Rock) and Morna Regan, Hidden Assets sees Angeline Ball (The Commitments, Keeping Faith) reprise her role as Detective Sergeant Emer Berry from Acceptable Risk, alongside Simone Kirby (His Dark Materials, Jimmy's Hall), Wouter Hendrickx (Blackout, Cordon), Peter Coonan (Love/Hate, Cold Courage), Cathy Belton (Red Rock, Miss Scarlet) and Michael Ironside (The Alienist, Angel of Darkness).

Speaking earlier this year about being cast in Hidden Assets, which was filmed in late spring/early summer, Simone Kirby said: "I was sent the scripts around Christmas and I immediately knew I wanted to be in it.

"I think when you have women writing for women it's great because the characters become a little bit more three-dimensional and they're filled out a little bit more and all of the female characters in this are brilliant. They're really strong, complex but vulnerable, interesting women."

Hidden Assets has been made in association with RTÉ, Screen Ireland, Screen Flanders and AMC Networks' Acorn TV.

It was produced by Irish production company Saffron Moon and co-produced by Belgian producer Potemkino and Canada's Facet 4.

Hidden Assets begins on RTÉ One and RTÉ Player on Sunday, 7 November
