HBO’s True Detective & The Brink set date for UK & Ireland premier

Colin Farrell in True Detective

Sky Atlantic sets date for UK & Ireland premiere of HBO’s True Detective and The Brink

15 May: As part of the channel’s strategy to bring the most compelling stories exclusively to Sky customers, Sky Atlantic today announce plans to premiere True Detective, starring Colin Farrell, and The Brink on Monday 22 June, less than 24hrs after their US debut on HBO.

Following True Detective’s critically acclaimed debut which The Daily Telegraph called “the most ambitious TV drama for a long time”, the new series of Nic Pizzolatto’s BAFTA® award winning anthology crime drama follows three police officers and a career criminal as they navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.

Set and shot in California, the eight-episode series of True Detective boasts a stellar cast, which in addition to Colin Farrell, includes Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Kelly Reilly.  The series is written and created by Nic Pizzolatto, with Justin Lin directing the first two episodes.

Brand new dark comedy The Brink stars Jack Black, Tim Robbins and Pablo Schreiber as three disparate, desperate Americans upon whose shoulders the fate of the world rests after a rogue general seizes control of Pakistan and its nuclear arsenal.

From the turbulent streets of the Middle East, to the White House situation room, to an aircraft carrier on the Red Sea, these three compromised souls must pull through the chaos around them to save the planet from World War Three.

Additional cast members include comedy actors Rob Brydon, Meera Syal and Michelle Gomez.  The ten episode series is executive produced by Jerry Weintraub, Roberto Benabib and Jay Roach, and created by Roberto Benabib and Kim Benabib.

True Detective and The Brink will premiere exclusively to Sky customers on Sky Atlantic on Monday 22 June.
