Ciaran Hinds in KinFimed in Dublin despite the challenges brought on by the coronavirus, the eight-part series follows the chaotic lives of a fictional Dublin family at the centre of a gangland war. It's loosely inspired by the story of the Kinahan Cartel - a family of Irish gangsters shipping drugs in and out of Dublin while fighting gangs in the city. "Kin, at its heart, is a global story about grief, love, loss, and the ties that bind us", said David Davoli, President of Television for BRON studios. Ciarán will star alongside an impressive line-up of Irish acors including Clare Dunne (Outlander), Aidan Gillen, Sam Keeley, Emmett Scanlan, Maria Doyle Kennedy, and a new actress, Yasmin Seky.
