A Town Called Malice

Watch the colourfully violent trailer for new gangland series A Town Called Malice

"If Dallas made love to Pulp Fiction to the sounds of Duran Duran, they’d give birth to A Town Called Malice," reads the tagline.

Set in the early 1980s, the thriller follows the Lords, a family of former South London gangsters who've fallen to the bottom of the criminal ladder.

Following a big battle, they flee to the Costa del Sol in Spain, where they seize the opportunity to re-invent themselves and re-capture their former glory.

The only problem is that they spend as much time fighting each other as they do their rivals.
