A gallery of first-look images has been released for SAS: Rogue Heroes, the major new drama series from Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight.
Filmed on location in the UK and Morocco, SAS: Rogue Heroes is the dramatised account of how the world’s greatest Special Forces unit, the SAS, was formed under extraordinary circumstances in the darkest days of World War Two.
Tom Glynn-Carney (Dunkirk, The King) joins the previously announced cast, as SAS founding member Mike Sadler.
Also announced today are BAFTA-winner Jason Watkins alongside Stuart Campbell, Ralph Davis, Bobby Schofield, Virgile Bramly, Tom Hygreck, Paul Boche, David Alcock, Moritz Jahn, Arthur Orcier, Jordy Lagbre, Adrian Lukis, Anthony Calf, Isobel Laidler, and Ian Davies, who all play key roles across the series.
Steven Knight, SAS: Rogue Heroes writer and executive producer, says: "It has been a privilege to work on a project which tells the story of a renegade band of soldiers who used wit and imagination as much as firepower to halt the march of Fascism across North Africa during the darkest days of World War Two...
"This is a war story like no other, told in a way that is at once inspired by the facts and true to the spirit of this legendary brigade of misfits and adventurers."
Karen Wilson, executive producer and Joint Managing Director of Kudos says: “With filming now complete, we’re incredibly excited to give the world a first look at our Rogue Heroes. A huge thank you to the series’ peerless cast and crew for bringing Steven Knight’s ambitious, extraordinary scripts to life with such skill and style.”
Rich with action and set-pieces, SAS: Rogue Heroes is the exhilarating story of renegade men taking monumental risks in extraordinary circumstances.
The six-part series will air next year on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
