Channel 4’s spy thriller Traitors will premiere on Sunday February 17th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Traitors tell the story of story of Feef, a bold 20-something woman who joins the Civil Service in 1945, just as the Labour party sweeps to victory, defeating Winston Churchill in an unexpected landslide. Her ambition to make something of her life goes unrecognized by her family, and is further complicated by her American lover. Feef agrees to spy on her own government for the Americans, who have a hidden agenda in making sure England’s burgeoning Socialist ambitions don’t play into Soviet hands.
Struggling to work out what she stands for, and what she’s capable of, Feef must learn to think for herself and play by her own rules at a time when knowledge becomes power and nothing and no one is what they seem. The drama series is produced by 42 and Twenty Twenty Productions and stars Emma Appleton (Clique), Keeley Hawes (Bodyguard), Michael Stuhlbarg (The Looming Tower), Luke Treadaway (Unbroken), Brandon P. Bell (Dear White People), Stephen Campbell Moore (The Last Post) and Matt Lauria (Parenthood). The executive producers are Eleanor Moran, Rory Aitken, Emma Willis, Tim Carter and Bash Doran.
