David Tennant was photographed on the set of Inside Man earlier this week. David is among the stellar cast who will appear in Steven Moffat's upcoming limited series. The four-part drama will also star Stanley Tucci (Supernova, Fortitude) in the titular role, with Dolly Wells (Dracula, Blunt Talk) and Lydia West (It's A Sin, Years And Years). Netflix have come on board the project to stream the series internationally outside the UK and Ireland.
Produced by Hartswood films, the drama's plot is still very much under wraps, but what is teased so far is that it focuses on a prisoner on death row in the USA, a vicar in a quiet English town played by David, and a maths teacher trapped in a cellar, who cross paths in the most unexpected way.
Steven Moffat and his wife Sue Vertue, executive producer for Hartswood Films, say: “We’re a bit stunned, and very excited, at the acting talent we’re managing to assemble for this show. Can’t wait to crawl out of our lockdown bunker and get to work.”
Piers Wenger, Director of BBC Drama, says: “BBC One viewers will already know the television magic created when Steven Moffat writes for David, Dolly and Lydia. With the fantastic Stanley Tucci alongside them as our Inside Man, everything is in place for a series that will have the nation gripped.”
Inside Man is created and written by Steven Moffat and directed by Paul McGuigan, with Alex Mercer as producer. Executive producers are Sue Vertue for Hartswood Films and Ben Irving for the BBC. Chris Sussman will oversee for Netflix. The series will premiere on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK and on Netflix outside of the UK and Ireland.
