Spectrum Originals will premiere the event series Curfew on June 24, 2019, with all eight episodes dropping at once for those into binge-watching. The series, described as a “high-octane street race car drama,” will be available on demand to Spectrum subscribers.
The cast of the event series includes Adam Brody (The O.C.), Billy Zane (Titanic), Adrian Lester (Trauma), Miranda Richardson (Good Omens), and Sean Bean (Game of Thrones). Here’s hoping Sean Bean can survive through all eight episodes.
The cast also features 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).
“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,” stated Katherine Pope, Head of Spectrum Originals.
Matthew Read (Hammer of the Gods) writes and executive produces. Tiger Aspect Productions’ Will Gould and Frith Tiplady produce along with Moonage Pictures and Simon Maloney. Colm McCarthy (The Girl With All The Gifts, Peaky Blinders) directed.
“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.”
