Written by Primetime Emmy® nominee James Graham (Brexit: The Uncivil War, Quiz) and already renewed for a second season, the first season of Sherwood is inspired by actual events that occurred in Nottinghamshire nearly two decades ago.

David Morrissey (The Walking Dead) and Lesley Manville (Mum) lead the top-notch Season 1 cast, which includes Mark Addy (Game of Thrones), Adeel Akhtar (River), Alun Armstrong (New Tricks), Lorraine Ashbourne (Bridgerton), Kevin Doyle (Happy Valley), Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey), Robert Glenister (Hustle), Clare Holman (Inspector Lewis), Philip Jackson (Agatha Christie’s Poirot), Andrea Lowe (DCI Banks), Terence Maynard (The Witcher), Claire Rushbrook (Whitechapel), and Pip Torrens (Preacher).

Sherwood, a BritBox Original, premieres in North America on Tuesday, October 4, exclusively on BritBox.

Because of Nottinghamshire’s complex political past, the industrial villages around Sherwood Forest have often been divided communities. So when two local residents are killed, old wounds are reopened and the town is engulfed in tension and fear.

Soon everyone is under suspicion. Neighbors are turning on neighbors, and no one can be trusted — especially not the authorities. It’s down to local police chief DCS Ian St Clair and London Metropolitan Police offer DI Kevin Salisbury to solve the case and unravel the lies. Can they put their own troubled history aside and help this fractured community heal?

Drawn from real-life events, Sherwood is a shockingly relevant thriller about a burgeoning lack of trust in local police and national government, as well as the way that supposedly long-buried political tensions can resurface to devastating effect.
