Epix has set the US premiere date for its new Original series Rogue Heroes, the first war drama from Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight.
Based on Ben Macintyre’s best-selling book of the same name, Rogue Heroes is a dramatized account of how the world’s greatest Special Forces unit — the SAS, Britain’s Special Air Service — was formed under extraordinary circumstances during the darkest days of World War Two.
Rogue Heroes, an Epix Original, premieres in the US on Sunday, November 13, exclusively on Epix.
Created and written by Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders, Taboo, A Christmas Carol), the six-part series features a top-notch cast that includes Connor Swindells (Sex Education, Vigil), Jack O’Connell (Skins, The North Water), Alfie Allen (Jojo Rabbit, Game of Thrones), Tom Glynn-Carney (Dunkirk, The King), Sofia Boutella (Modern Love, Atomic Blonde), and Dominic West (The Wire, The Hour).
Rogue Heroes centers on David Stirling (Connor Swindells), an eccentric young officer who is hospitalized after a training exercise went wrong. Convinced that traditional commando units don’t work, he creates a radical plan that flies in the face of all accepted rules of modern warfare. Stirling fights for permission to recruit the toughest, boldest, and brightest soldiers for a small undercover unit that will create mayhem behind enemy lines. More rebels than soldiers, Stirling’s team is every bit as complicated, flawed, and reckless as it is brave and heroic.
The series costars Amir El Masry (Industry, The One), Theo Barklem-Biggs (The First Team, Carnival Row), Corin Silva (The Bay, Emmerdale), Jacob Ifan (Bang, The Accident), Dónal Finn (Cursed, The Witcher), Jacob McCarthy (The Last Summer, A.P. Bio), César Domboy (Outlander, The Walk), Michael Schaeffer (Chernobyl, The Salisbury Poisonings), and Miles Jupp (The Great, The Durrells).
Produced by Kudos Entertainment and Nebulastar Production as an Epix Original series, in association with BBC One, Rogue Heroes is directed by Tom Shankland (The Serpent, The Missing) and produced by Stephen Smallwood (The Serpent, Patrick Melrose). It is executive produced by Karen Wilson, Martin Haines and Emma Kingsman-Lloyd for Kudos, and Tommy Bulfin for the BBC.
