While speaking to HELLO! and other press in December 2021, Jed teased that viewers can expect a show "very different" from Line of Duty but was keen not to give too much away.

"You know, it's great if people come to [Trigger Point] because they love Vicky from Line of Duty, and they want to see her in this particular role. So that would be lovely if it gives the show more attention," he said.


Adrian Lester also stars in the new series

"We're very proud of our collaboration on Line of Duty, and obviously thrilled with the way in which that series has connected with such a large audience. But I think that the audience will realise that it is a very different piece of work."
