Apple TV+ today launches its all-new original series, Slow Horses. It is an adaptation of the novels by Mick Herron, which tells the story of a division of MI5 which takes in spies who have been rejected and who have been cut off from the standard professional path due to career problems. The first two episodes are available for streaming on the platform.
Available today for all subscribers
Gary Oldman leads the cast of Slow Horses, as protagonist Jackson Lamb, who leads the group of rejected spies. He has affection for his team, even if it does not inspire confidence from the start. As Lamb says, “They’re a bunch of absolute losers…but they’re my losers.”
The first season of the series also stars Kristen Scott Thomas, Jonathan Pryce, Jack Lowden and Olivia Cooke, among others and consists of six episodes. A second season of at least six additional episodes is already in development.
The overarching plot follows Slough House as it becomes embroiled in a major hostage case fueled by right-wing extremism. Perhaps the spies can prove that they are not as useless as the central services of MI5 think. For information, it is the British intelligence service, the equivalent of the CIA in the US or the DGSE in France.
Here is the cast of Slow Horses:
- Kristin ScottThomas (Do not tell anyone and Four weddings and a funeral)
- Jack Lowden (War and peace and A family in the ring)
- Olivia Cooke (Bates Motel and Ready Player One)
- Saskia Reeves (Luther and Us)
- Dustin Demri Burns (Truth Seekers and Charlie, turn it up)
- Rosalind Eleazar (lore and Murders in Paradise)
- Paul Higgins (Utopia and savages)
- Freddie Fox (The Crown and The Great)
- Chris Reilly (Official Secrets and The Head)
- Steve Waddington (Uncharted and Bridgend)
Without forgetting the participation of Christopher Chung, Paul Hilton, Antonio Aakeel and Peter Judd.
