Britz’ Writer/Director Taps ‘Demons’ Star For New Drama
Christian Cooke, Luke Van Helsing from BBC AMERICA’s Demons, will appear in UK broadcaster Channel 4’s four-part drama The Promise, reports The Stage. The drama will air in 2011 and co-stars Little Dorrit‘s Claire Foy. Channel 4 reveals a little bit about the plot on its drama and acquisitions page: “Eighteen-year-old Erin sets out on an emotional journey when she retraces her grandfather’s footsteps.” No details on Cooke’s character, but judging by Channel 4’s photo of him all tank-topped, sun-dappled, and pouty-lipped, those looking for a little Christian eye candy won’t be disappointed.
The writer/director of The Promise is Peter Kosminsky, the man behind the grim but powerful drama, Britz, which followed the diverging fates of two Muslim siblings.
