Michelle Dockery and Nicholas Pinnock to star in Steven Knight’s The Town

Michelle Dockery and Nicholas Pinnock are to star in ‘The Town’.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ actress and the ‘Marcella’ star are among the actors who have signed up for ‘Peaky Blinders’ creator Steven Knight’s major new six-part drama for the BBC.

Steven, writer, creator and executive producer, said: “This is a project very close to my heart.

“It’s about an era I lived through and know well and it involves characters who I feel I grew up with.

“It’s a love letter to Birmingham and Coventry but I hope people from all over the world will relate to it.”

‘The Town’ tells the story of four young people and an extended family who are drawn into the world of ska and two-tone music, which exploded from the grass roots of Coventry and Birmingham in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, uniting black, white and Asian youths.

Levi Brown, Jordan Bolger, Ben Rose, and Eve Austin will portray the four young lead characters.

David Dawson, Geraldine James, Peter McDonald, Freya Parks, Shyvonne Ahmmad, John Heffernan, Stefan Asante-Boateng, Séainín Brennan, George Somner and Brendan Gibson will also appear in the series.

Jo McClellan, BBC Drama Commissioning Editor, said: “Steven’s scripts are absolutely brilliant – they capture the wild energy of youth and a pivotal moment in time, all set to a fantastic soundtrack, and we can’t wait to see this incredibly talented cast bring it all to life.”

Karen Wilson, exec producer and MD of Kudos, added: “We cannot wait for this incredible cast to help bring the world that Steven has created in ‘This Town’ to life.

“The combination of powerful storytelling, gripping drama and brilliant music will make it a must-watch – audiences are in for a real treat!”
