The City & The City: new trailer for BBC’s adaptation

Heading to BBC Two in early April is an adaptation of China Mieville’s The City & The City. David Morrissey headlines the adaptation, that’s been adapted for the screen by Tony Grisoni. Tom Shankland has directed the four episodes.

Also in the cast for this one are Lara Pulver, Mandeep Dhillon, Maria Schrader, Ron Cook, Danny Webb and Christian Carmago.

The synopsis for the drama reads as follows…

When the body of a foreign student is discovered in the streets of the down-at-heel city of Besźel, it’s just another day’s work for Inspector Tyador Borlú of the Extreme Crime Squad (David Morrissey). But he uncovers evidence that the murdered girl came from Ul Qoma, a city that shares a dangerous and volatile relationship with Besźel, and this case will challenge everything Borlú holds dear.

And here’s the trailer for it…

It premieres on Friday April 6th.
