BBC One’s new 5 episode dramedy series Truckers will premiere on Thursday October 10th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Created by William Ivory, Truckers has been described as a bitter-sweet character-driven show about getting by in difficult times. The series follows a rogue’s gallery of irascible characters, men and women, all of whom work for the same haulage company driving 40 ton articulated lorries across the Midlands. In each episode a trucker undergoes a life changing journey and the audience is taken along for the ride. The series is produced by Company Pictures and stars Stephen Tompkinson (DCI Banks), Ashley Walters (Inside Men), John Dagleish (Lark Rise To Candleford), Harry Treadaway (Control), Sian Breckin (Donkey Punch) and Jenn Murray (The Fades).
