The BBC have set a launch date for their upcoming thriller, Informer, penned by Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani – and they’ve also given us a trailer…

Informer is described in the official bumf as “a complex, character-driven thriller about Raza, a young second generation British-Pakistani man from East London (Nabhaan Rizwan) who is coerced by Gabe, a Counter-Terrorism Officer (Paddy Considine) into informing for him.”

It’ll star Rizwan and Considine as well as Bel Powley, Jessica Raine, Sharon D Clarke, Arinzé Kene, and Sunetra Sarker to boot. They’ll be working from scripts by Haines and Noshirvani and directed by Jonny Campbell, who helmed The Casual Vacancy. Ex-James Bond director Sam Mendes is also executive producing.

Here’s that trailer…

Informer will premiere on BBC One on Tuesday 16th October at 9pm.
