Taken Down, a new Irish crime drama from the creators of Love/Hate, continues the wave of peak Irish TV.

Fans of the gritty Dublin crime series Love/Hate will absolutely love the new contemporary drama Taken Down, from the same award-winning creators. Its first season debuts on DVD today, November 19, from Acorn TV.

When Esme, a young Nigerian girl, is found dead at a bus stop, Inspector Jen Rooney (Lynn Rafferty of Ripper Street) and her team of detectives investigate a nearby center for asylum-seekers. The shaken residents there are afraid to speak to the police, and the disorganized manager (Brian Gleeson, Logan Lucky) provides no help. Jen and her team have little to go on until CCTV footage reveals that one resident, refugee Abeni Bankole (Aïssa Maïga, Paris, je t’aime), may know more about Esme than she let on. Orla Fitzgerald (The Wind that Shakes the Barley), and Slimane Dazi (Only Lovers Left Alive) also star in this thrilling drama.

After another child from the center disappears, the cops uncover a cunning gang taking advantage of desperate people. Their mission is to find the missing girl before she becomes another casualty of Dublin’s dangerous underground.

Taken Down premiered in September on AMC Networks’ Acorn TV, North America’s largest streaming service focused on British and international television. It earned rave reviews, with the Irish Examiner calling out the "impressive Irish and international cast" and the Irish Independent praising its “brilliantly plotted storyline, with twists and turns that keep you enthralled throughout every episode.”

The two-disc DVD set of Taken Down series one features 45 minutes of bonus cast and crew interviews for a behind-the-scenes look at the series.
