Stephen Graham to Star in New True-Crime Drama for ITV


ITV has commissioned The Walk-In, which is based on the true story of how a Neo-Nazi plan to kill an MP was foiled by an inside man.

Stephen Graham (This Is England, Help, Time, The Virtues) stars in the lead role of activist Matthew Collins, a reformed Neo-Nazi now working as a bona fide journalist for the anti-racist organization Hope not Hate.

The five-part drama is written by screenwriter Jeff Pope (A Confession, Stan & Ollie, Little Boy Blue). Paul Andrew Williams directs the series, having worked previously with Pope on A Confession and Isolation Stories. Andrew Williams is also an executive producer alongside Pope, Graham and Tom Dunbar (A Confession, Isolation Stories).

The drama will air on ITV on October 3 for five consecutive weeks and will be available as a box set on the ITV Hub following the first episode.
