We're pleased to announce two new films for the Playhouse Presents... strand.
Playhouse Presents... Nightshift
Written by Jimmy Gardner, and starring Daniel Mays, Ashley Walters and Scarlett Alice Johnson, Nightshift follows two police officers as they cruise the streets of south-east London in the small hours discussing life, the universe and everything else amidst the surreal world of the night.
Nightshift is produced by Cajun Pictures and World Productions.
Playhouse Presents... Foxtrot
Billie Piper, Ben Whishaw, Lindsay Duncan and Alice Sanders star in Foxtrot, written and directed by Polly Stenham. In her first television drama, the critically-lauded playwright brings her unique voice and vision to a contemporary ill-fated girl gang heist. Foxtrot is produced by Adrian Bate, with Pip Broughton as creative producer, and Gina Carter and Zoe Rocha as executive producers.
Stuart Murphy, Director of Sky Entertainment, said: "We're so happy with these dramas. I hope they show we put a premium on creative endeavour at Sky and that our philosophy of backing world class creative talent, and pushing them to make their best work, is the way to go."
Cameron Roach, Head of Drama, added: "Weve all loved making these programmes and we hope that everyone who watches them feels like theyve discovered something new, exciting and very special."
