HEIST-DRAMA OPENS THE VAULT AND EXPLORES THE MINDS OF THREE ORDINARY MEN CROSSING THE MORAL DIVIDE
BBC AMERICA's Dramaville presents Inside Men, a robbery-story told in reverse, starring Steven Mackintosh, Warren Brown and Ashley Walters
"A tense, knuckle-gnawing thriller, with a lovely stark industrial quality." - Guardian
"Clever plot and some commendably unshowy performances, I can't wait to find out what happens next... I can't imagine anyone watching Inside Men felt in the slightest bit short-changed."
- Daily Telegraph
"On-the-money performances... But it's the idea that this could easily be you or me that gets under the skin. Edge-of-the seat stuff." - Metro
Inside Men, the next installment of BBC AMERICA's Dramaville, follows three security depot employees, who plan and execute a multi-million pound cash heist. Every day they watch as millions of pounds worth of cash is counted, bound and stored in a vault. They see more money than they could ever dream of earning slowly pass them by. That is, until they decide to take it. Inside Men premieres Wednesday, June 20, 10:00pm ET/PT as part of Dramaville.
Gritty and gripping, this new four-part drama riddled with unexpected twists is a story told entirely from the perspectives of three men. They are not seasoned criminals. John (Steven Mackintosh, Luther) is manager of the cash counting house and is too scared to confront the humdrum normality of his life. Marcus (Warren Brown, Luther) is a forklift driver up to his eyes in debt and eager to prove himself to his friends and family. Chris (Ashley Walters, Outcasts) is a depot security guard determined to provide a better life for his family. 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 does it mean to risk your freedom? And are John, Marcus and Chris ready to accept the consequences of their actions and endure the resulting fallout on their own consciences?
Inside Men follows the stylish and suspenseful drama, White Heat, continuing BBC AMERICA's Dramaville, the home of groundbreaking British drama including the Golden Globe(R)-winning mini-series Luther, Golden Globe(R)-nominated mini-series The Hour and the upcoming drama series Ripper Street and The Spies of Warsaw.
