BBC One has released a new teaser and new photos for the thriller Ridley Road, based on the acclaimed novel by Joe Bloom.
Starring Rory Kinnear and Eddie Marsan, the series is set in a shaky 1960s London we’ve never seen before: the East End world where fascism is rising. But with Vivien Epstein’s lover in danger and she must undercover to save him, Vivien must infiltrate the Nazis for her country.
Sarah Solemani, who spent a lot of time researching, wrote the script for the drama. “This bond is closer and more alive than we would like to believe,” Solemani said in a statement.
“The good news is that we have been fighting for a long time. “Joe Bloom’s fascinating book showcases the dark side of London in the 1960s and the remarkable contribution of the Jewish community to the fight against racism,” said Bloom. It’s an honor to be able to bring this little-known British history to the screen with RED and the BBC, and we look forward to the future.”
