Jim Sturgess and Agyness Deyn to star in the BBC’s ‘Hard Sun’
LONDON, Jan. 6 (UPI) — Jim Sturgess and Agyness Deyn are to start filming the detective drama series Hard Sun in London later this month.
The pair will play detectives Robert Hicks and Elaine Renko, “partners and enemies in contemporary London, who seek to enforce the law and protect their loved ones in a world that every day slips closer to certain destruction,” the British broadcaster said in a press release Friday.
The six-hour drama — written by Neil Cross, creator of Luther — is expected to air later this year.
“I am very excited to be playing Hicks in this wonderful project. To work with Neil’s fantastic writing is a great opportunity and I hope we are going to create an amazing experience for our audience. I can’t wait to get started!” Sturgess said in statement.
“As soon as I read the first episode I was hooked. I’m such a fan of both Neil and [director] Brian [Kirk’s] work, it’s an honor to join the Hard Sun team,” added Dean.
