The show follows Allen and Lakemeier as a pair of hackers who want to join the upper echelons of the tech world with all the billionaires. They end up being recruited by the Irish Mafia, who want them to hack into the computer systems of Rotterdam harbour to move their drug shipments around undetected.

"It's a wonderful treat to watch these great European actors bring life to our band of colorful characters," Williams said.

Executive producer Femke Wolting added: "It's a pleasure to be bringing on board even more fantastic talent from around the world, marking Safe Harbor as a truly global project.
