The first trailer for BBC's upcoming four-part drama You Don’t Know Me has been released today.
Based on Imran Mahmood's bestselling novel, the adaptation is written by Tom Edge (The Crown, Vigil) and produced by Snowed-In Productions (Too Close, Mrs Wilson) and co-produced with Netflix for BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
You Don’t Know Me stars Samuel Adewunmi, newcomer Sophie Wilde, Roger Jean Nsengiyumva, Tuwaine Barrett, Yetunde Oduwole and Nicholas Khan alongside Bukky Bakray who recently became the youngest ever winner of the Bafta Rising Star Award at the age of 19; she also earned a Bafta Best Actress nomination for her role in the film Rocks.
Directed by Sarmad Masud (My Pure Land, Bulletproof, Ackley Bridge), the drama centres on a young man, who, with overwhelming evidence against him, stands accused of murder. At his trial, Hero (Adewunmi) tells an extraordinary story. It is about the woman he loves, Kyra (Wilde) who got into terrible trouble. It’s about how he risked everything to save her. He swears he’s innocent. But in the end, all that matters is this: do you believe him?
You Don't Know Me begins Sunday 5th December, and continues Monday 6th December on BBC One and iPlayer.
