Slow Horses is directed and executive produced by James Hawes from a script written by Veep‘s Will Smith. Joining Oldman are Academy Award nominees Kristin Scott Thomas (Darkest Hour) and Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes) along with Jack Lowden (Dunkirk) and Olivia Cooke (Sound of Metal, House of the Dragon).

“It follows a team of British intelligence agents who serve in a dumping ground department of MI5 – Slough House,” reads the synopsis. “Oldman stars as Jackson Lamb, the brilliant but irascible leader of the spies who end up in Slough House due to their career-ending mistakes.”
