Sean Bean, Malachi Kirby to Star in British ‘Fast & Furious’ Style Series
The success of the Fast & Furious franchise has spawned numerous familiar projects. The latest is set to star Sean Bean (Game of Thrones) and Malachi Kirby (Roots) in Sky’s drama Curfew.
The series 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.
Curfew is being produced by Peaky Blinders’ Will Gould, Matthew Read and Frith Tiplady, with Read writing the script.
“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,” Head of Drama Anne Mensah said. “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.”
Bean and Kirby are joined by Adrian Lester (Hustle), Phoebe Fox (Eye in the Sky), Rose Williams (Reign), Aimee-Ffion Edwards (Peaky Blinders), Elijah Rowen (Vikings) and Guz Khan (Man Like Mobeen), Curfew will air on Sky One.
