Idris Elba to play radical black activist in ‘Guerrilla’

Golden Globe winner and star of ‘Luther’ Idris Elba is set to return to our TV screens, this time as a radical black activist in new Sky drama ‘Guerrilla’.

The new six-part series will see the 43-year-old London-born actor cohere with writer and director John Ridley, who won an Oscar for best-adapted screenplay for ’12 Years a Slave’. Elba will also be an executive producer on the show.

The story follows a young couple whose relationship is put under pressure when they form a radical underground cell in 1970s London which aims to bring down the Black Power Desk, a real-life furtive counter-intelligence unit within Special Branch devoted to crushing all forms of black activism.

After receiving the role, Elba revealed “It’s been a long time desire of mine to collaborate with Mr. Ridley and his work here is nothing short of a masterclass in character building and storytelling. TV is in for a treat”.

Meanwhile, Ridley has spoken of the professionalism and skill associated with Elba: “I am both humbled by and impressed with Idris’ passion towards bringing this story to life. I share his commitment for populating the culture with driven and complicated people of colour”.

Sky’s head of drama, Anne Mensah, said: “Rarely does a project pitch the personal and the political in such a flawless combination. Guerrilla presents characters you will fall in love with but also a world and a part of black British history that is rarely tackled in such a bold and compelling manner”.

‘Guerrilla’ will be screened on Sky Atlantic in 2017.
