AMC has released the trailer for the critically-acclaimed drama Gangs of London, which is headed to the US next month. The series stars Joe Cole (Peaky Blinders, Black Mirror), Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù (Humans), Colm Meaney (Star Trek, Hell on Wheels), Lucian Msamati (His Dark Materials), Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones, Suits) Paapa Essiedu (Press, Kiri), and Pippa Bennett-Warner (MatherFatherSon, Harlots).
Here’s the synopsis for the series:
Set in the heart of London, one of the world’s most dynamic and multicultural cities, Gangs of London tells the story of the 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 organization 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 within the streets of London, which consists of the Albanian Mafia headed by Luan Dushaj, as well as the Kurdish freedom fighters, Pakistani Drug Cartel, Welsh travellers and various other criminal elements.
In the middle of this is newcomer Elliot Finch (Sope Dirisu), who appears to be a low-level employ of the Wallace family & opportunist, secretly is an undercover policeman building a case against the Wallace Family organization.
This looks like a pretty interesting family crime drama. Check out the trailer below, and watch Gangs of London on AMC+, AMC’s new premium subscription bundle available on Comcast, Dish Network/Sling on October 1st.
