Britannia.

Set in 43AD, this drama sees the Roman Imperial Army return to crush the Celtic heart of Britannia. Written by Jez Butterworth, the ten-part series stars Kelly Reilly, David Morrissey, Zoë Wanamaker, Liana Cornell and Stanley Weber. The series is the first co-production between Sky and Amazon Prime Video.

Radio Times said that the show is “Game of Thrones meets the most debauched year you ever had at Glastonbury”.

“I know the show has had lots of Game of Thrones comparisons but from my first conversation with Jez and producer James Richardson, and from the in-house teaser trailer I’d been shown, I saw this show had more in common with Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting.” ND

Hard Sun.

Hard Sun is a pre-apocalyptic British television crime drama series, created and written by Neil Cross (Luther), starring Agyness Deyn and Jim Sturgess. The first series contains six episodes which were premiered on BBC One.

“I wasn’t aware that Neil (Cross) was a fellow Bristolian, what a wonderful surprise and even more so when he turned out be a rather lovely chap with a good taste in music and bonkers ideas. I also got to work again with the lovely Hugh Warren, producer on Spotless and In The Dark, as well as series director Brian Kirk and episode directors Nick Rowland and Richard Senior.” ND

In The Dark.

Happy to announce that In The Dark, which Neil worked on last year, will have its first episode transmitted on BBC1 at 9pm on Tuesday 11th July. It’s a four-part series based on best-selling crime writer Mark Billingham’s (Tom Thorne) stand-alone novel and has been adapted for TV by Danny Brocklehurst (Clocking Off, The Driver).

The lead is MyAnna Buring (Ripper Street, Downton Abbey, The Twilight Saga) as Helen Weeks, a feisty yet fragile detective.

Spotless.

Neil created the incredible soundtrack to crime drama Spotless, which premieres on Netflix today.

Set in London, it tells the story of a troubled crime scene cleaner, whose tidy life is turned upside down when his outlaw brother crash lands into his world, entangling them in the deadly dynamics of organised crime.

“Darker than Breaking Bad... Spotless pushes limits even further... stimulating and will sometimes leave the viewer blown away.” – RTL
