Here’s a first look at Guerrilla, a new six-part series for Sky Atlantic that centres on two politically active lovers who set out to change the world.
Guerrilla is a love story set against the backdrop of one of the most politically explosive times in UK 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.
The series stars the best of British talent including Idris Elba, Daniel Mays, Rory Kinnear, Zawe Ashton and Nicholas Pinnock as well as acclaimed Indian actress Freida Pinto.
