Slow Horses Trailer: Gary Oldman Leads a Group of Rejected Agents

Apple TV+ has dropped the full Slow Horses trailer for its forthcoming spy thriller series, which will be available for streaming on April 1 with the first two episodes.

The video highlights a group of MI5 agents who have been banished to the agency’s lowest department, which is being led by Gary Oldman’s Jackson Lamb, who constantly reminds them of why they’re at the bottom. However, because of a newly-exiled agent’s determination to get back on the field, the unlikely team gets caught up in a top-secret dangerous mission.

Slow Horses is directed and executive produced by James Hawes from a script written by Veep‘s Will Smith, based on Mick Herron’s espionage novel Slough House. The six-episode series will be led by Oscar-winner Gary Oldman in his first major television role in over two decades.

“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.”

Joining Oldman are Academy Award nominees Kristin Scott Thomas (Darkest Hour) and Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes) along with Jack Lowden (Dunkirk), Olivia Cooke (Sound of Metal, House of the Dragon), Antonio Aakeel (Three Girls), and more.
