"A wealthy couple and a teenage girl make a pact that will change all of their lives forever," the British broadcaster said in a press release.

The project's ensemble also includes Shirley Henderson, Katie Leung, David Hayman, Fiona Bell, James Harkness, Bailey Patrick, Kate Dickie, Paul Brannigan and Samuel Small.

"I'm absolutely delighted to join the cast of The Nest," Compston said in a statement. "Nicole Taylor is one of the most exciting and original voices in writing today, I'm chuffed we're finally working together. Combined with filming in Glasgow and going back onto BBC One in my native west coast accent makes it a dream scenario."
