BBC One’s adaptation of Len Deighton’s classic alternative history novel SS-GB will launch on February 19th.
The series stars Sam Riley and Kate Bosworth and takes place in a world in which the Germans won the Battle Of Britain and now occupy the UK.
Riley plays lead character Detective Douglas Archer, who finds himself working under the brutal SS in occupied London.
When investigating what appears to be a simple black market murder, “Archer of the Yard” is dragged into a much darker and treacherous world where the stakes are as high as the ultimate outcome of the war.
Bosworth plays American journalist, Barbara Barga, who becomes inextricably linked with the murder case that Archer is investigating.
A dark and intricate story of moral ambiguity, the series poses the question of what you would do if faced with the choice of collaboration or joining a brutal resistance.
The five-part drama was adapted by Robert Wade and Neal Purvis whose credits include some of the Bond franchise’s biggest hits, including The World Is Not Enough, Casino Royale and Skyfall.
