Sky have released the official trailer for the upcoming Sky Atlantic crime drama series Gangs of London, which hails from The Raid director Gareth Evans.
Gangs of London is set in contemporary London as it is being torn apart by power struggles involving several international gangs. The series begins as the head of one criminal gang is assassinated and the power vacuum threatens the fragile peace between the other underworld organisations.
The series hails from an original idea from Gareth Evans and his frequent collaborator Matt Flannery, and Evans has directed the majority of the episodes, with the rest having been directed by Corin Hardy and Xavier Gens. The series is produced by Pulse Films in association with Jane Featherstone’s Sister Pictures. Hugh Warren serves as producer on the project, while Pulse Films’ Thomas Benski and Lucas Ochoa also serve as executive producers alongside Sister Pictures’ Jane Featherstone and Sky’s Gabriel Silver.
