Produced by AC Chapter One and Anonymous Content, in association with Paramount Television International Studios, the trailer gives a first glimpse into the origins of Gal and Don’s complicated relationship as they find themselves descending into the seductive madness of the London criminal world during the vibrant and volatile 1990s, while Gal’s budding relationship with DeeDee threatens everything in their world.

James McArdle (Mare of Easttown, Angels in America) is Gal Dove, and Emun Elliott (The Rig, The Gold) is Don Logan – the duo are best friends and small-town thieves, living the good life in ’90s East London. Sarah Greene (Bad Sisters, Normal People) is Deedee Harrison, a captivating adult film star whose ambitions to control her destiny and her love affair with Gal Dove put her in danger.

Stephen Moyer (Shots Fired, True Blood) is Teddy Bass, a treacherous, rising name in the gangster world, who seduces Gal and Don into his criminal web, and Tamsin Greig (Episodes, Friday Night Dinner) is Don’s pathologically controlling and formidable older sister Cecilia.
