Posted Filed under

Created by a team of writers led by Tony Jordan (Life on Mars, Hustle), the six-part series follows a covert police department unit “living on the edge and playing the criminal elite at their own game”.

Amy Nuttall commented: “I’m so excited to be part of this gripping new drama. Being on set with the fantastic cast and crew was really fun. My character is a hard-hitting journalist – very different from some of the other characters I’ve played – which was lots of fun!”

Executive producer Belinda Campbell added: “We’re delighted to welcome such an extensive and talented list of guest stars to By Any Means, accompanying our wonderful main cast. There are some brilliantly crafty and manipulative characters throughout the series, which have been expertly brought to life by these gifted actors and actresses.”

Other guest stars will include Keith Allen (Robin Hood), Neil Maskell (Utopia), Kate Dickie (Game Of Thrones), Michael Maloney (The White Queen), John Henshaw (South Riding) and Harriet Walter (Little Dorrit).

The regular By Any Means cast features Warren Brown (Luther), Shelley Conn (Mistresses), Andrew-Lee Potts (Primeval), Gina McKee (The Borgias) and Elliot Knight (Sinbad).

Warren Brown recent told Digital Spy: “I tried to describe it and I said, ‘It’s like The A-Team meets The Equalizer‘, and then I thought, ‘I would absolutely bloody watch that!”

The actor added: “…it is serious, but there’s a lot of fun to be had in it, as well. It’s quite caper-ish and there’s a lot of banter between the team.”
