SHOWTIME® RELEASES POSTER ART AND BEHIND THE SCENES VIDEO

FOR NEW SIX-PART LIMITED EVENT SERIES GUERRILLA

Created By Oscar® Winner John Ridley, GUERRILLA Will Premiere On Sunday, April 16 At 9 PM

 

 

NEW YORK – March 9, 2017 –  SHOWTIME has released the poster art and new behind the scenes video for its highly anticipated six-part limited event series GUERRILLA, premiering on Sunday, April 16 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Created by Academy Award® winner John Ridley (12 Years a Slave, American Crime), GUERRILLA is a love story set against the backdrop of one of the most politically explosive times in U.K. history. The series stars Screen Actors Guild Award® winner Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) and Babou Ceesay (Getting On).

 

Video: GUERRILLA – Behind the Scenes

GUERRILLA tells the story of a couple whose relationship and values are tested when they liberate a political prisoner and form a radical underground cell in 1970s London. Their ultimate target becomes the Black Power Desk, a true-life, secretive counter-intelligence unit within the Special Branch dedicated to crushing all forms of black activism. While the series is set against a background of social and political activism, at its heart GUERRILLA is about a relationship under pressure, and the reality that for any couple there comes a point when the choices they make have real and lasting consequences. Golden Globe® winner Idris Elba (Luther, Beasts of No Nation) also stars and serves as an executive producer through his Green Door Pictures. Additional cast includes Laurence Olivier Award winner Rory Kinnear (PENNY DREADFUL), Nathaniel Martello-White (Deadmeat), Daniel Mays (Line of Duty), Denise Gough (People, Places & Things), Brandon Scott (Grey’s Anatomy), Zawe Ashton (Fresh Meat) and Nicholas Pinnock (Fortitude).

Along with Ridley and Elba, the executive producers on GUERRILLA are Michael J. McDonald for Stearns Castle, Patrick Spence and Katie Swinden for Fifty Fathoms and Tracy Underwood for ABC Signature. Ridley wrote the majority of the episodes and directs the first two and the finale, with Emmy® Award nominee Sam Miller (Luther, Fortitude, American Crime) directing the remaining episodes. Yvonne Isimeme Ibazebo serves as producer for Fifty Fathoms. GUERRILLA is a co-production between Fifty Fathoms and ABC Signature, in association with SKY UK.
