Next year brings us the much anticipated fifth season of the BBC’s Idris Elba-led “Luther,” but before it hits we’re getting another piece of work from creator Neil Cross – the six-part pre-apocalyptic thriller series “Hard Sun”.
Jim Sturgess and Agyness Deyn star as contemporary London cops, he a profoundly corrupt but dedicated family man while she is difficult and damaged. Both distrust each other, but end up having to work together when investigations into a hacker’s death lead them to discover a conspiracy hiding a key truth – that the world will end in five years from a solar event.
“Hard Sun” kicks off in the UK on BBC One on January 6th, and will hit the United States in its entirety via Hulu on March 7th. Check out the promo trailer below:
