Stan has released the trailer for the brand new crime thriller series The Undeclared War, which is set to premiere this July, same day as the U.K. – with all six episodes available at once.
Set in a post-pandemic 2024 in the run up to a British general election, The Undeclared War tracks a leading team of analysts buried in the heart of GCHQ, secretly working to ward off a series of cyber-attacks, among other threats to the UK’s national security.
When a routine stress test of internet infrastructure goes awry, 21-year-old GCHQ intern Saara Parvan (Hannah Khalique-Brown) suddenly finds herself operating on the invisible frontier of high-stakes cyber warfare. The series is a result of meticulous research by creator Peter Kosminsky, lifting the veil on the most urgent battle of our time.
The series is led by Academy award-winner Mark Rylance (Wolf Hall, Bridge of Spies), Simon Pegg (Star Trek, Mission Impossible) and Adrian Lester (Riviera, Mary Queen of Scots).
Created, written, directed and executive produced by seven-time BAFTA award-winner Peter Kosminsky (Wolf Hall, Britz), the series also stars Alex Jennings (A Very English Scandal, The Crown), Maisie Richardson-Sellers (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and newcomer Hannah Khalique-Brown.
