Sky One’ eight episode street racing drama series Curfew has added former The O.C. star Adam Brody to its already impressive cast.
Brody, who played Seth on the Fox teen drama, has been cast as – and kudos to Sky’s press office for the alliteration here – mysterious megalomaniac millionaire Max Larssen.
He joins a cast that, as TVWise previously reported, includes Billy Zane, Miranda Richardson, Michael Biehn, Harriet Walter, Sean Bean, Adrian Lester, Phoebe Fox, Malachi Kirby, Robert Glenister, Aimee-Ffion Edwards, Rose Williams, Elijah Rowen and Guz Khan.
“The Curfew scripts came my way and I couldn’t stop reading; I loved the outsized personality it had. It’s bleak, hopeful, violent, funny and tender all at the same time”, Brody said in a statement. “It’s a joy to work with such a talented group of performers and downright lovely human beings. Max Larssen is unlike any character I’ve played and it was a thrill to try to access such an intelligent and remote individual.”
Curfew tells the story of ordinary people competing in the world’s fastest, most furious, illegal night-time street race. Desperate for their own reasons, the challengers risk everything as they race through the night from London to northernmost Scotland in their pimped-out, weaponised vehicles to win the ultimate prize — freedom from the totalitarian government curfew that controls their lives.
The drama series was created by writer Matthew Read, who also serves as an executive producer. It is being produced by Tiger Aspect Productions in association with Moonage Pictures, with Simon Maloney serving as the series producer. The executive producers are Will Gould and Frith Tiplady for Tiger Aspect Productions. Peaky Blinders helmer Colm McCarthy is the director. The series was commissioned by Sky’s Head of Drama Anne Mensah, Sky One Director Adam MacDonald and Director of Programming for Sky UK & Ireland Zai Bennett.
