Hard Sun written by Neil Cross, the creator of Luther, is pre-apocalyptic crime drama. The series is bold, ambitious, relevant and dark but it’s also very moving and told through complex extraordinary characters.
Detectives Elaine Renko and Robert Hicks, partners and enemies, seek to enforce the law and protect their loved ones in a world that every day slips closer to certain destruction.
Writer Neil Cross says: “Imagine the world you see when you look out your window… except it’s been given a death sentence. This isn’t science fiction. This is the real world. There’s no hero to come save us; no contingency plan. We’ve got five years.”
The show is due to air on BBC One early 2018.
