Clean Sweep Coming to Sundance Now & AMC+


The Irish crime thriller Clean Sweep is slated to debut as an original series on Sundance Now and AMC+ on June 22.

The six-episode first season follows supermom Shelly Mohan, who spends her days cooking, cleaning, shopping and making sure there is a meal on the table by the time her husband, a Galway Garda detective, arrives home. When a dark secret emerges from her past, she makes a fatal choice to prevent the truth from surfacing and her detective husband from finding out.

Charlene McKenna (Bloodlands, Peaky Blinders) leads the cast as Shelly, while Barry Ward (Anne Boleyn, Des) plays her husband. Additional cast members are Cathy Belton (Hidden Assets), Kaitlyn Rose Downey (The Princess), Adam Fergus (Harry Wild), Trevor Kaneswaren (Line of Duty), Rhys Mannion (It Is In Us All), Aidan McCann (Bad Sisters) and Jeanne Nicole Ní Áinle (SisterS).

The series was created by Gary Tieche (Preacher, I Know What You Did Last Summer), who also wrote every episode except three, which was written by Fran Harris (Blue Lights). Ronan Burke (Harry Wild) directed episodes one through three, while Yves Christian Fournier (L’homme qui aimait trop) directed four through six. It was produced by ShinAwiL and Incendo.

Executive producers are Jin Ishimoto, Patty Lenahan Ishimoto, Harvey Myman, Larry Bass, Mary Callery, Aaron Farrell, Graham Ludlow, Jean-Philippe Normandeau, Shari Segal, Tieche and McKenna, as well as RTÉ’s Dermot Horan and David Crean; Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland’s Andrew Byrne; and ZDF Studios’ Yi Qiao and Robert Franke. ZDF Studios is distributing the series internationally.
