Stan has announced the highly anticipated, action-packed drama series Gangs of London will premiere in November.
A mega-hit in the UK, Gangs of London will stream exclusively on Stan in Australia, following the recent signing of a landmark partnership agreement with NBCUniversal.
Featuring a multi-talented ensemble cast that includes Joe Cole (Peaky Blinders, Black Mirror), Sopé Dirisù (Humans), Colm Meaney (Layer Cake, Con Air), Lucian Msamati (The Good Liar) and Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones), Gangs of London is set in the heart of one of the world’s most dynamic and multicultural cities – a city being torn apart by the turbulent power struggles of the international gangs that control it and the sudden power vacuum that’s created when the head of London’s most powerful crime family is assassinated.
For 20 years, Finn Wallace (Colm Meaney) was the most powerful criminal in London. Billions of pounds flowed through his organisation each year. But now he’s dead – and nobody knows who ordered the hit. With rivals everywhere, it’s up to the impulsive Sean Wallace (Joe Cole), with the help of the Dumani family headed by Ed Dumani (Lucian Msamati) to take his father’s place. If the situation wasn’t already dangerous enough, Sean’s assumption of power causes ripples in the world of international crime. Perhaps the one man who might be able to help him and be his ally is Elliot Finch (Sopé Dirisù), who up until now, has been one of life’s losers, a lowlife chancer with a mysterious interest in the Wallace family. But as the wind of fate blows, Elliot finds himself transported to the inner workings of the largest criminal organisation in London.
Gangs of London was created by the visionary award-winning filmmaker of The Raid film franchise, Gareth Evans and his creative partner Matt Flannery and is executive produced by Thomas Benski and Lucas Ochoa for Pulse Films and Jane Featherstone for Sister.
Gangs of London premieres 6 November only on Stan – with all episodes available at once.
