The miniseries about an inside job at a cash-counting facility debuted this week in the U.S. and the opening hour was all kinds of time-jumping, everyone-suspecting, shotgun-to-the-knee-shooting intense. We have no idea who the brains of the operation will turn out to be, how many backs will be stabbed, or who will survive… and that’s exactly how we like it. Highly recommended viewing for heist-film buffs.
WARNING: it really is intense.
Series premieres Wednesday, June 20 at 10/9c.
See the gritty, gripping heist that rocks the world of three security depot employees: John (Steven Mackintosh, Luther), the timid cash counting house manager; Marcus (Warren Brown, Luther), the forklift driver drowning in debt; and Chris (Ashley Walters, Outcasts), the ambitious security guard.
Every day, they watch as millions of pounds of cash is counted, bound and stored in a vault. More money than they could ever dream of earning, slowly passing them by… That is, until they decide to take it!
"A tense, knuckle-gnawing thriller, with a lovely stark industrial quality." — Guardian
Presented by DRAMAVILLE, the destination for the most groundbreaking drama in British television.
Luther’s Steven Mackintosh, Warren Brown and Hustle’s Ashley Walters star
Told entirely from their perspective, INSIDE MEN is the story of three employees of a security depot who plan and execute a multi-million pound cash heist.
About the characters:
This new four-part drama stars Steven Mackintosh as John, manager of the cash counting house, a character too scared to confront the humdrum normality of his life. Joining him in the robbery is depot security guard Chris, played by Ashley Walters, and forklift driver Marcus, played by Warren Brown.
They are not seasoned criminals. They are everyday, hard-working men who see an opportunity, weigh up the risks, and take a leap. The series is written by Tony Basgallop and Hilary Salmon is the executive producer.
Inside Men premieres Wednesday, June 20, 10:00p.m. ET/PT as part of Dramaville on BBC AMERICA.
