DESCRIPTION:
(from Showtime's press release, February 2017) From Academy Award(R) winner John Ridley (12 Years A Slave, American Crime), comes the six-part limited event series GUERRILLA, a love story set against the backdrop of one of the most politically explosive times in U.K. history. Set to air on SHOWTIME and Sky Atlantic this spring, GUERRILLA tells the story of a couple whose relationship and values are tested when they liberate a political prisoner and form a radical underground cell in 1970s London. Their ultimate target becomes the Black Power Desk, a true-life, secretive counter-intelligence unit within the Special Branch dedicated to crushing all forms of black activism. While the series is set against a background of social and political activism, at its heart GUERRILLA is about a relationship under pressure, and the reality that for any couple there comes a point when the choices they make have real and lasting consequences. GUERRILLA stars Screen Actors Guild Award winner Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) and Babou Ceesay (Getting On). Additional cast includes Laurence Olivier Award winner Rory Kinnear (PENNY DREADFUL), Nathaniel Martello-White (Deadmeat), Daniel Mays (Line of Duty), Denise Gough (People, Places & Things), Brandon Scott (Grey's Anatomy), Zawe Ashton (Fresh Meat) and Nicholas Pinnock (Fortitude), along with Golden Globe winner Idris Elba (Luther, Beasts of No Nation), who also serves as an executive producer through his Green Door Pictures. Along with Ridley and Elba, the executive producers on GUERRILLA are Michael J. McDonald for Stearns Castle, Patrick Spence and Katie Swinden for Fifty Fathoms and Tracy Underwood for ABC Signature. Ridley wrote the majority of the episodes and directs the first two and the finale, with Emmy Award nominee Sam Miller (Luther, Fortitude, American Crime) directing the remaining episodes. GUERRILLA is a co-production between Fifty Fathoms and ABC Signature, in association with SKY UK.
