BBC AMERICA BRINGS TWO NEW DRAMAS, "WHITE HEAT" AND "INSIDE MEN," TO DRAMAVILLE

New York - Tuesday, March 27, 2012 - Following BBC AMERICA's announcement last week of its latest co-production, Ripper Street, the channel announced today the acquisition of two new drama miniseries, White Heat and Inside Men, set to premiere as part of the channel's Dramaville franchise. These three new scripted deals reinforce BBC AMERICA's continued commitment to bringing high quality and critically acclaimed British drama to the US.

· White Heat (6 x 60) is produced and distributed by ITV Global Entertainment

· Inside Men (4 x 50) is a BBC production distributed by BBC Worldwide

WHITE HEAT - US PREMIERE

White Heat charts the lives of seven friends from 1965 through to the present day. Their relationships - complex, volatile, life affirming and life changing - start when they come together as a diverse group of young students to live as flatmates in London's Tufnell Park. They are rebel with a cause Jack played by Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman), intelligent feminist Charlotte played by Claire Foy (Upstairs Downstairs, Little Dorrit), fragile beauty Lilly played by MyAnna Buring (The Twilight Saga, The Descent), medical student Jay played by Reece Ritchie (The Lovely Bones, Prince of Persia), electronics geek Alan played by Lee Ingleby (Luther, Harry Potter), law student Victor played by David Gyasi (Law and Order: UK)and kind hearted Orla played by Jessica Gunning (Law & Order: UK). The mini-series is written and created by Paula Milne. The executive producers for ITV Studios are Paula Milne and Kate Bartlett and the executive producer for the BBC is Lucy Richer. White Heat premieres Wednesday, May 9, 10:00p.m. ET/PT as part of Dramaville.

INSIDE MEN - US PREMIERE

Told entirely from their perspective, Inside Men is the story of three employees of a security depot who plan and execute a multi-million pound cash heist. This new four-part drama stars Steven Mackintosh (Luther, Camelot) as John, manager of the cash counting house, a character too scared to confront the humdrum normality of his life. Joining him in the robbery is depot security guard Chris, played by Ashley Walters (Outcasts, Hustle), and forklift driver Marcus, played by Warren Brown (Luther, Occupation). They are not seasoned criminals. They are everyday, hard-working men who see an opportunity, weigh up the risks, and take a leap. Inside Men is a study of how men behave when they step out of their comfort zones, and cross that moral line, what it means to risk freedom, and the resulting fallout on their own consciences. The series is written by Tony Basgallop and Hilary Salmon is the executive producer. Inside Men premieres Wednesday, June 20, 10:00p.m. ET/PT as part of Dramaville.

Only a few months after its launch, Dramaville, the home of groundbreaking British drama, earned four Golden Globe(R) nominations - three for The Hour and one for Luther. Luther's Idris Elba went on to win the Golden Globe for best actor in a mini-series or a motion picture made for television. Since it began in August 2011, Dramaville has also been the home of acclaimed series Whitechapel, Mistresses and State of Play. BBC AMERICA's latest co-production, Ripper Street, is set to premiere as part of Dramaville in Fall 2011. Up next, the third installment of Whitechapel premieres as part of Dramaville this Wednesday, March 28, 10:00pm ET/PT.
