BBC and Paramount+ will create new drama ‘The Gold’ and announce cast


BBC and Paramount+ will produce a new series “The Gold” starring Hugh Bonneville, Jack Lowden, Dominic Cooper, Charlotte Spencer, Tom Cullen, Emun Elliott, Sean Harris, Ellora Torchia, Stefanie Martini.

“The Gold‎” is set against a major event in British criminal history, the Brink’s-Mat robbery.

The episode is set on November 26, 1983, when six armed men break into the secure Brink’s-Mat warehouse near London’s Heathrow Airport and stumble upon £26 million worth of gold bars.

The disposal of bullion has sparked a massive international money laundering campaign, providing dirty money that has helped fuel a property boom in London’s Docklands, united blue- and white-collar criminals, and sparked controversy and murder.

“The Gold‎” is written by Neil Forsyth (“Urban Myths”) and directed by Aneil Karia (“The Long Goodbye”) and Lawrence Gough (“Doctor Who” “Endeavour”), and it consists of six episodes.
