Hard Sun - new BBC Drama (Supporting Artistes by Ray Knight Casting Ltd.)
BBC 1, Saturdays 9.35pm (6 episodes)
Hard Sun is a pre-apocalyptic crime show set in contemporary London. The protagonists are two mismatched police officers, Charlie Hicks (Jim Sturgess) and Elaine Renko (Agyness Deyn) who, whilst investigating what appears to be the routine death of a hacker in London, stumble upon proof that due to a mysterious cosmic event, the world is facing certain destruction in five years, a fact the powers-that-be would very much like to keep under wraps. The duo must use every bit of their ingenuity to protect themselves as they are pursued by MI5 operatives who are trying to silence them for good. Their dilemma turns into one of how can they keep their loved ones safe and uphold the law in a world that is running out of time?
