BBC One has released a first look at the new political thriller Roadkill starring Hugh Laurie (The Night Manager).
Created by playwright Sir David Hare, Roadkill follows the charming and assertive politician Peter Laurence (Hugh Laurie), whose public and private life comes under strain when enemies threaten to upend him.
As personal secrets spiral out of control, Peter, untroubled by shame or remorse, remains determined to further his own political agenda and avoid complete catastrophe.
Despite Peter’s best efforts, however, events reveal just how hard it is to leave the past behind, for both an individual and a country.
Other cast members include Helen McCrory (Peaky Blinders), Sidse Babett Knudsen (Westworld) and Sarah Greene (Dublin Murders).
The four-part series was filmed in London last year, with further details yet to be announced.
