Based on MICK HERRON’s best-selling first novel, SLOW HORSES stars Academy Award-winner Gary Oldman as Jackson Lamb, the brilliant but irascible MI5 intelligence agent who is put in charge of a team of dysfunctional spies. The six-episode drama is set to premiere globally with the first two episodes on Friday, April 1, followed by one episode weekly, every Friday.
The series revolves around Lamb’s ragtag unit, who end up in Slough House due to their career-ending mistakes. They now find themselves blundering through the smoke and mirrors of the espionage world. “Only screw-ups get sent to Slough,” Oldman tells his new team in the trailer. “Working with you has been the lowest point of a disappointing career.”
In addition to Oldman, the cast includes Oscar-nominee Kirstin Scott Thomas, BAFTA Scotland Award-winner Jack Lowden, Olivia Cooke, Saskia Reeves, Dustin Demri-Burns, Rosalind Eleazar, Christopher Chung, Paul Higgins, Freddie Fox, Chris Reilly, Steve Waddington, Paul Hilton, Antonio Aakeel, Peter Judd, and a special guest appearance by Oscar-nominee Jonathan Pryce.
The series is produced by See-Saw Films and adapted for television by Will Smith (Veep).
SLOW HORSES premieres on Friday April 1, Apple TV+
