The Hour BBC
Check out some photos for BBC’s new series THE HOUR which will premiere on Wednesday, August 17, 10:00p.m. ET/PT as part of Dramaville presented by Luther‘s Idris Elba on BBC America. The series will air on BBC Two in the UK, although it doesn’t have a premiere date yet.

The Hour was created and written by BAFTA award-winning Abi Morgan (White Girl, Sex Traffic) and stars Dominic West (The Wire), Romola Garai (Emma, Atonement) and Ben Whishaw (Bright Star, Brideshead Revisited).

Show Description: The series, set behind the scenes of the BBC’s newsroom in London in the mid ’50s, is an edge-of-your-seat spy thriller. It follows the lives of three characters as they set up a new weekly investigative news program, The Hour. The Hour plays out as a riveting thriller set against the backdrop of the Cold War and Ian Fleming’s world of espionage.

The drama plots the personal lives, professional interplay and jealous ambition between aspiring but renegade journalist Freddie Lyon (Whishaw), the beautiful ambitious young producer Bel Rowley (Garai) with whom he is in love, and his handsome rival Hector Madden (West), the face and lead anchorman of this rising television news team.

I also included a video below in which you can see a bit of footage from the series at the beginning.
