Adam Brody joins street-race drama series Curfew
Deadline reports that Adam Brody (The O.C.) has joined the cast of Curfew, the new eight-part drama series from Sky Productions, which is set to air on Charter Communications’ Spectrum network. Brody will play Max Larssen, a megalomaniac millionaire in the street race drama with a sci-fi twist, which will air on British pay-TV service Sky One.
“The Curfew scripts came my way and I couldn’t stop reading; I loved the outsized personality it had. It’s bleak, hopeful, violent, funny and tender all at the same time. It’s a joy to work with such a talented group of performers and downright lovely human beings. Max Larssen is unlike any character I’ve played and it was a thrill to try to access such an intelligent and remote individual,” said Brody about his character.
Curfew is about a group of street-racers who drive from London to Scotland in their custom vehicles in search of the prize: freedom from the totalitarian government. The series also stars Billy Zane (Titanic), Miranda Richardson (The Hours), Harriet Walter (The Crown), Michael Biehn (Aliens), Sean Bean (Game of Thrones), and Malachi Kirby (Roots). Curfew marks an anticipated acquisition for Sky One as it works to acquire more original programming to stay relevant in the Peak TV era.
Curfew is produced by Tiger Aspect Productions and Moonage Pictures. The series will air on Sky One and will be exec produced by Gould and Tiplady. Sky Vision will distribute internationally.
Brody will next be seen in Warner Bros. DC adaption Shazam! as well as the horror movie The Wanting.
