APPLEApple TV+ revealed the premiere date and a first look at the keenly anticipated espionage series “Slow Horses,” starring Academy Award winner Gary Oldman, which will make its worldwide debut on Friday, April 1, 2022. The six-episode drama, adapted from CWA Gold Dagger Award-winning Mick Herron’s first novel in the “Slow Horses” series, will premiere globally on Apple TV+ with the first two episodes, followed by one new episode weekly every Friday.

“Slow Horses” follows a team of British intelligence agents who serve in a dumping ground department of MI5 – Slough House. Oldman stars as Jackson Lamb, the brilliant but irascible leader of the spies who end up in Slough House due to their career-ending mistakes. Joining Oldman is a decorated ensemble cast including Academy Award nominee Kristin Scott Thomas (“Darkest Hour”), Academy Award nominee Jonathan Pryce (“The Two Popes”), BAFTA Scotland Award winner Jack Lowden (“Dunkirk”), and Olivia Cooke (“Sound of Metal”).

The series is produced for Apple by See-Saw Films and adapted for television by Will Smith (“Veep”). Graham Yost executive produces alongside Smith. Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta, Iain Canning, Emile Sherman, Gail Mutrux and Douglas Urbanski also serve as executive producers on the series. James Hawes directs all six episodes and executive produces. […]

DEADLINEApple TV+’s Gary Oldman spy drama Slow Horses has rounded out its cast, with Ready Player One star Olivia Cooke and The Two Popes actor Jonathan Pryce joining a lineup that also includes Kristin Scott Thomas and Jack Lowden.

See-Saw Films’ adaptation of Mick Herron’s espionage novels is currently shooting in the UK following a delay due to the coronavirus production shutdown, and sources tell Deadline that 12 episodes are being filmed, which will likely constitute two seasons of the drama.

Oscar winner Oldman stars as Jackson Lamb, a brilliant but irascible leader of a group of spies who end up in MI5’s Slough House, having been exiled from the mainstream for their mistakes.

Scott Thomas features as Diana Taverner, a formidable high-ranker at MI5, while Lowden is on board as River Cartwright, a talented agent who is desperate to claw his way up and out of Slough House. Apple confirmed Scott Thomas and Lowden’s casting after the Daily Mail first reported that they had signed for the series.

Pryce, the Oscar nominee who recently was cast as Prince Philip in The Crown, will play David Cartwright, River’s grandfather and a retired MI5 agent. Finally, Cooke is Sid Baker, a sharp agent and River’s officemate. It caps a good few days for Cooke, who was confirmed last week as a lead in HBO’s Game of Thrones prequel House Of Dragon.

Deadline understands that casting is not confirmed for the second season, though it’s safe to assume Oldman will return as he is the central character in Herron’s series, which spans seven books, including the upcoming Slough House.

Slow Horses is adapted by Will Smith, who executive produces with Graham Yost, Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta, Iain Canning, Emile Sherman, Gail Mutrux, and Douglas Urbanski. James Hawes (Black Mirror, Snowpiercer) is directing the first six episodes, while Deadline hears that interviews are underway for a director of Season 2.

The series was commissioned for Apple TV+ by London-based Jay Hunt, Apple’s creative director for Europe worldwide video, alongside heads of worldwide video, Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht.

Cooke is repped by The Artist Partnership (in the UK), Grandview and Viewpoint. Attorneys are Gretchen Rusch and Huy Nguyen. Pryce is represented by Julian Belfrage Associates and Anonymous Content. Scott Thomas’ reps are Independent Talent Group and CAA, while Lowden’s are Conway Van Gelder Grant (in the UK) and UTA.
