Created by Steven Knight, the original six-part series stars Cillian Murphy in his first major TV role.
Set in the lawless streets of post-war Birmingham on the cusp of the 1920s, epic gangster drama Peaky Blinders is a dazzling vision taken directly from the pages of Britain's secret history.
With Sam Neill, Helen McCrory, Paul Anderson, Iddo Goldberg, Charlie Creed-Miles, Annabelle Wallis, Joe Cole, Sophie Rundle, and acclaimed poet Benjamin Zephaniah completing the stellar cast, and music from Jack White, Mercury Music Prize Nominee Sam Lee and Nick Cave, whose “Red Right Hand” provides the title track, Peaky Blinders is set to bring a fresh new cinematic world to the small screen.
This is the first TV drama by series creator Steven Knight. Directed by Otto Bathurst (Black Mirror, Criminal Justice) [Episodes 1-3] and Tom Harper (Misfits, This is England ’86, The Scouting Book for Boys) [Episodes 4-6] and produced by Katie Swinden (Luther, Spooks), Peaky Blinders is a co-production from Caryn Mandabach Productions and Tiger Aspect Productions with support of the Yorkshire Content Fund. Peaky Blinders is distributed by Endemol Worldwide Distribution.
Executive produced by Caryn Mandabach, Steven Knight, Greg Brenman, Jamie Glazebrook, Frith Tiplady, and Matthew Read for the BBC. Commissioned by Ben Stephenson and Janice Hadlow and Matthew Read for BBC Two.
