BBC One’s new Jimmy McGovern drama Broken will premiere on Tuesday May 30th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Broken is described as a “State of the Nation Piece” that follows Father Michael Kerrigan, a Catholic priest presiding over a Northern urban parish. Modern and maverick, yet reassuringly flawed, Father Michael must be confidante, counsellor and confessor to a conflicted congregation who, like himself, struggles to reconcile its beliefs with the hypocrisies demanded by contemporary Britain.
The six episode drama series, which as created and penned by McGoven, is produced by LA Productions and stars Sean Bean (Game Of Thrones), Anna Friel (Marcella), Adrian Dunbar (Line Of Duty), Paula Malcolmson (Ray Donovan), Mark Stanley (Dickensian) and Muna Otaru (The Keeping Room). The executive producers are Lucy Richer, Sean Bean and Jimmy McGovern
