20 August 2013 7:13 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

I have no idea how significant their roles will be, but it's still good to know that Wunmi Mosaku and Sharlene Whyte will get some screen-time in the upcoming BBC One dramedy series, Truckers. It's been a few months since Tambay first told us that Top Boy actor Ashley Walters would be joining John Dagleish, Harry TreadawaySian Breckin and Jenn Murray in the series created by William Ivory, described as a bitter-sweet character-driven show about getting by in difficult times.  The series will follow an eclectic group of irascible characters, men and women, all of whom work for the same trucking company, driving 40 ton lorries across the Midlands. In each episode a trucker undergoes a life changing journey and the audience is taken along for the ride. Walters has been cast as Steven, one of the truckers; Dagleish as Martin, the manger of the haulage company; Treadaway as Glen Davies, »
