Curfew

Sean Bean & Malachi Kirby Team Up For ‘Fast And The Furious’-Style Drama
Quote
Game of Thrones star Sean Bean and Roots star Malachi Kirby are among the big names attached to Sky’s Fast and the Furious-style drama Curfew as the British broadcaster continues to drip out programming announcements.

The eight-part drama, which follows the story of ordinary people competing in the world’s fastest, most furious, illegal night-time street race, is produced by Tiger Aspect Productions and Moonage Picturs, the indie set up by Peaky Blinders execs Will Gould, Matthew Read and Frith Tiplady.

The series, which was written by Read, will see contestants race through the night from London to Scotland in their “pimped-out” vehicles to win the ultimate prize — freedom from the totalitarian government curfew that controls their lives.

Adrian Lester (Riviera), Phoebe Fox (Blue Iguana) Robert Glenister (Spooks), Aimee-Ffion Edwards (Troy: Fall of a City), Rose Williams (Reign), Elijah Rowen (Vikings) and Guz Khan (Man Like Mobeen) also star in the series, directed by Peaky Blinders’  Colm McCarthy.

Commissioned by Sky’s Head of Drama Anne Mensah, the series will air on Sky One and will be exec produced by Gould and Tiplady. Sky Vision will distribute internationally.

Mensah said: “When Sky does dramas about car races, we do them like no other broadcaster. Funny, emotionally truthful, visceral and above all fast – Curfew is the perfect Sky One show. Matthew Read has created fantastically memorable, sometimes shocking, always fascinating characters. You’ll want every single one of them to win the race of their lives.”

Read added: “Sky have been incredibly supportive throughout the development of such a bold and ambitious show and I couldn’t be more pleased by the creative team that has been assembled to deliver a story that we have filled with as much excitement, emotion and dynamism as possible.”

Sean Bean to Star in Sky Street Racing Drama ‘Curfew’
Quote
European pay-TV giant Sky has ordered “Curfew,” a full-throttle U.K. original set in the world of street racing. The car racers will compete in customized and weaponized vehicles as they race across the U.K. in an attempt to escape the control of a totalitarian government.

Endemol Shine’s Tiger Aspect is producing alongside fledgling U.K. drama banner Moonage. The 8-parter will launch on Sky and the satcaster’s NOW TV streaming service.

Each of the challengers in the illegal races are, the producers said, drawn to the dangerous world of racing for their own, desperate, reasons. Sean Bean (“Game of Thrones”) will star alongside Adrian Lester (“Riviera”), Phoebe Fox (“Blue Iguana”), and Malachi Kirby (“Roots”).


Matthew Read (“Hammer of the Gods”) created the show. The cast also includes Robert Glenister (“Spooks”), Aimee-Ffion Edwards (“Peaky Blinders”), Rose Williams (“Reign”), Elijah Rowen (“Vikings”), and Guz Khan (“Borderline”).

Uh oh, when he starts taking parts in craptastic stuff like this it usually means there's trouble in paradise. Its what he did when things started getting dicey for him at home when he was nearing the end of his marriage to Gina. Anything to keep busy and out of the house.

I don't think that's what this is. I mean, he did Drone recently... He did Wasted a couple years ago. Snow Queen 2, Any Day...

For every great thing he does, there are always stinkers with it lol.

I hope The Oath isn't one of them.
