Spectrum Originals hit the gas hard this week with the official trailer for the forthcoming eight-episode thriller, Curfew. The exclusive new series is the second and latest in forthcoming original programming from the streamer since launching last month – the other being Bad Boys spin-off, L.A.’s Finest.
In a near-future London, a mysterious illness has spread throughout the country, leaving a population gripped in fear. As an increasingly desperate government imposes a strict nightly curfew, there is only one hope for freedom, from the virus and from tyranny… an illegal and potentially deadly street race that takes place once a year. This series follows the twists and turns of one such race and its unexpected participants. With a thrilling ensemble cast that includes Sean Bean (Game of Thrones), Adam Brody (The O.C.) and Billy Zane (Titanic), Adrian Lester (Trauma) and Miranda Richardson (Good Omens), CURFEW is a fun, frenetic ride that explores the lengths ordinary people will go to race themselves free.
Curfew also stars Robert Glenister (Hustle), Aimee-Ffion Edwards (Peaky Blinders), Rose Williams (Reign), Elijah Rowen (Vikings), Guz Khan (Borderlin), Harriet Walter (The Crown) and Michael Biehn (The Terminator), premieres ad-free for subscribers on June 24. CURFEW is written and executive produced by Matthew Read (Pusher, Hammer of the Gods). The series hails from Tiger Aspect Productions and Moonage Pictures, exec produced by Will Gould and Frith Tiplady, and is directed by Colm McCarthy (The Girl With All The Gifts, Peaky Blinders) with Simon Maloney (Peaky Blinders) producing.
“CURFEW is a true love letter to genre in every way. Amidst the highest of stakes and the pulse-racing action, though, there is also a rare combination of humor, heart and hope. We are thrilled to partner with Sky, Tiger Aspect and the Moonage team on this exciting new event series,” said Katherine Pope, Head of Spectrum Originals.
