Seven has acquired Hard Sun, a six-part ‘pre-apocalyptic’ drama set in London.
The BBC-Hulu production, written by Neil Cross (Luther) stars Jim Sturgess and Agyness Deyn, and tipped to debut internationally in March.
Angus Ross, Director of Network Programming said “Seven is always on the lookout for dramas that stand out from the crowd. Hard Sun is a thrilling story on an epic scale – this will be an intense and addictive show we feel will resonate across the screens of Seven.”
Paul Ridley, SEVP of Sales & Distribution, Australia, New Zealand and Japan, FMI commented “I’m excited to be working with Seven to bring Hard Sun to Australian audiences. Full of complex characters, this is a truly distinctive, well-acted and brilliantly written crime drama by an exceptional storyteller, Neil Cross.”
Hard Sun tells the story of how investigators Charlie Hicks (Sturgess) and Elaine Renko (Deyn) inadvertently stumble upon evidence that the world is facing certain destruction in five years. As the pair find themselves pursued by ruthless operatives who are willing to kill to keep them silent, they must use all their ingenuity to protect themselves and those that they love.
