April sees the premiere of Sky
Atlantic’s fascinating 6-part drama series ‘Guerrilla’.
Set among the Black Power movement in London in the early 1970s, and from the pen of John Ridley (who won an Oscar for his screenplay for 12 Years a Slave), Guerrilla imagines the movement taking up an armed struggle in the face of a special Metropolitan Police Unit designed to stir up trouble against the activists using officers recruited from Apartheid South Africa. Luther star Idris Elba executive produces and stars as Kent, a 2nd generation Brit who wants equality for black people in Britain to be reached through peaceful and intellectual means.
“Guerrilla is a love story set against the backdrop of one of the most politically explosive times in U.K. history. It 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 Special Branch dedicated to crushing all forms of black activism. Whilst 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.”
