Freida Pinto & Idris Elba Star In First Trailers For GUERILLA

The first trailers are here for the upcoming TV mini-series.

From screenwriter John Ridley (12 Years a Slave) comes this six-part mini-series that follows two lovers (Freida Pinto and Babou Ceesay) who become involved in the fight against Scotland Yard's attempts to suppress the Black Power movement of 1970s London.

The official synopsis reads:

From Academy Award® winner John Ridley (12 Years A Slave, American Crime) comes the six-part limited event series GUERRILLA, a love story set against the backdrop of one of the most politically explosive times in U.K. history. It tells the story of a couple whose relationship and values are tested when they liberate a political prisoner and form a radical underground cell in 1970s London. Their ultimate target becomes the Black Power Desk, a true-life, secretive counter-intelligence unit within the Special Branch dedicated to crushing all forms of black activism. While the series is set against a background of social and political activism, at its heart GUERRILLA is about a relationship under pressure, and the reality that for any couple there comes a point when the choices they make have real and lasting consequences.

Guerilla premieres on Sky Atlantic in the UK on April 13th and Showtime in the US on April 16th. Both networks have released promos.
