“Inside Men” is a story of three security officials who plan a multi-million dollar heist. The four-part drama stars Steven Mackintosh (“Luther,” “Camelot”) as John, manager of the cash counting house who has become fed up with his humdrum lifestyle. His two accomplices include depot security guard Chris, played by Ashley Walters (“Outcasts,” “Hustle”) and forklift driver Marcus, played by Warren Brown (“Luther,” “Occupation”).
The characters are unique because they are not seasoned criminals, but everyday men who notice an opportunity, weigh the risks and take a leap. “Inside Men” is a psychological study of how men cope once they step out of their comfort zones and cross the moral line, risking freedom and the fallout of their own social consciences.
The series, written by Tony Basgallop (“Being Human“) and produced by Hilary Salmon, is the newest series commissioned by BBC America to join the award-winning Dramaville line-up. “Inside Men” premieres Wednesday, June 20 at 10/9c.
