Hulu has revealed a first look at the second, four-part installment of the drama series – National Treasure, which will premiere in its entirety on April 4 as part of the Hulu Originals slate, in conjunction with the UK’s Channel 4, the parent network of the series.
Season two — titled Kiri — will make its US-debut only on Hulu. The new season will unfold around the abduction of a young black girl, named Kiri, who is soon-to-be-adopted by her white foster family, and the trail of lies, blame, guilt and notoriety that follow.
Sarah Lancashire, Lucian Msamati and Lia Williams are among its stars.
The drama will see a social worker named Miriam (Lancashire), described as having a “maverick and instinctive approach to protecting the children in her care.” After arranging an unsupervised visit with Kiri and her biological grandparents, she disappears, and suspicion and blame from her colleagues, the press and the police center at Miriam. As the media spotlight around the story intensifies, Miriam, as well as both sets of families, are forced to ask the toughest questions, not just of themselves, but of each other.
Tobi (Msamati) Kiri’s biological grandfather, will have race and the relationship with his son (the prime suspect in Kiri’s murder) under the microscope, while Alice (Williams) who was set to adopt Kiri is subject to the intense pressure and public grief.
National Treasure: Kiri is created and written by BAFTA-winner Jack Thorne. George Ormond and George Faber return as executive producers of the acclaimed series. The series is produced by Toby Bentley and directed by Euros Lyn.
