BBC Two’s new 1920s gangster drama series Peaky Blinders will premiere on Thursday September 12th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Created by Steven Knight, Peaky Blinders is set in Birmingham in 1919 and follows the extended Shelby family whose many brothers, sisters, cousins and uncles make up the fiercest gang of post-war Birmingham: the ‘Peaky Blinders.’ The gang got their name for their practice of sewing razor blades into the peaks of their caps, and they make their money from off track betting, protection and robbery. The gang is led by Tommy, the most ruthless brother of them all, whose leadership is about to be put to the test. A ruthless new police chief arrives in town from Belfast to clean up the city and, perhaps more lethally, a beautiful woman arrives in the neighborhood with a mysterious past and a dangerous secret. The drama series is produced by Caryn Mandabach Productions & Tiger Aspect Productions and stars Cillian Murphy (28 Days Later), Sam Neill (The Tudors), Helen McCrory (Harry Potter), Annabelle Wallis (Snow White And The Huntsman), Iddo Goldberg (Secret Diary Of A Call Girl) and Charlie Creed-Miles (Nil By Mouth).
