Jim Sturgess and Agyness Deyn will lead the cast of BBC’s pre-apocalyptic crime drama “Hard Sun,” which is written by Emmy-nominated “Luther” creator Neil Cross. Hulu has boarded the six-hour miniseries as co-producer, and has taken U.S. rights.
Sturgess (“One Day,” “21”) and Deyn (“Sunset Song”) play detectives Robert Hicks and Elaine Renko, described in a statement as “partners and enemies, who seek to enforce the law and protect their loved ones in a world that every day slips closer to certain destruction.”
Hicks is “a family man and a great, committed cop. He’s also profoundly corrupt.” Renko is “difficult and damaged… and utterly incorruptible.”
“Hicks and Renko stand on different ends of the social and moral spectrum,” the statement continues. “They also seriously distrust one [another] — and for good reason. But they must somehow learn to work together… if they’re going to survive until the end of the world.”
