The cast for the much-anticipated fourth season of The Syndicate has been confirmed.
Neil Morrissey (Unforgotten) will star alongside Emily Head (The Inbetweeners), Taj Atwal (Line of Duty), Katherine Rose Morley (Thirteen) and Kieran Urquhart (Vera).
British YouTuber Joe Sugg will make his TV acting debut in the series alongside fellow castmates Liberty Hobbs (Grey’s Anatomy) and Mark Benton (Shakespeare & Hathaway).
The six-part series, written by Kay Mellor (Band of Gold), will follow the workers of Woodvale Kennels, who fear they will be out of a job when the kennel owners sell the company off to a large corporation. When gambling addict Keeley (Katherine Rose Morley) attempts to find a lifeline in the weekly lottery, her ticket check with the local newsagent Frank (Neil Morrisey) appears to offer exciting results.
However, nothing is as it seems in the cat-and-mouse thriller, and the syndicate must navigate the vastly different worlds of Yorkshire and Monaco to get what’s rightfully theirs.
Kay Mellor commented: “Lockdown has been a roller-coaster of emotions for all of us. I was devastated not to be able to begin shooting the new Syndicate.
“All the scripts were written and we were four days away from principal photography but now we’re ready for the stage and I couldn’t be more excited.”
The series will premiere exclusively as a BritBox Original Co-Production in the US and Canada following the UK premiere on BBC One, which is yet to be announced.
