Alfie Allen, Shazad Latif, Samira Wiley to Lead Sky Original


Alfie Allen (SAS: Rogue Heroes, Game of Thrones), Shazad Latif (Star Trek: Discovery, What’s Love Got to Do With It) and Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale, Orange Is the New Black) are set to star in the upcoming Sky original Atomic.

Pulse Films is producing the five-part adventure series, which is inspired by the book Atomic Bazaar by journalist William Langewiesche. Upon its debut, Atomic will become available on Sky and streaming service NOW in the U.K., Ireland, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

NBCUniversal Global TV Distribution will handle international sales of the series.

Gregory Burke, writer and executive producer, said; “I am thrilled to bring the world of Atomic to life with the brilliant director Shariff Korver and such a wonderful cast. It is a story about the terrifying prospect of a world where nuclear weapons are easier to acquire than ever before and about the infinite possibilities that exist within the best of us and the worst of us.”
