Paddy Considine, Bel Powley and Nabhaan Rizwan have been set to star in Neal Street Productions’ Informer for BBC One. The six-part contemporary thriller will air on Amazon Prime Video in the U.S., after the UK broadcast. Penned by Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani, and directed by Jonny Campbell, Informer centers on Raza (Rizwan), a young, second generation Pakistani man from East London who is coerced by Gabe (Considine), a Counter-Terrorism officer, to go undercover. Gabe, who has a past he is unwilling to expose, is joined by Holly (Powley), his ambitious and endlessly curious partner. As the investigation heats up, the stakes for all three get higher and higher. Jessica Raine, Sharon D Clarke, Sunetra Sarker and Roger Jean Nsengiyumva also star. Executive producers are Nicolas Brown, Sam Mendes and Julie Pastor for Neal Street and Elizabeth Kilgarriff for BBC One. All3media International is on handling overseas sales.
