Gareth Evans's GANGS OF LONDON Toplines Pulse's TV Slate For Cinemax And Sky

Fan favorite Gareth Huw Evans is on the way with a new serial crime drama, Gangs Of London for HBO's Cinemax and Sky Atlantic. Looking to bring a new "cinematic viewing experience" as Deadline quotes Evans, the show marks a small-screen first for Pulse Films whose Thomas Benski, Founder and Chief Executive, describes the show as the "ideal calling card" to launch Pulse's TV slate.


Readying a 2019 launch, the show is set in contemporary London, now ground zero for international gang warfare as the assassination of a crime boss initiates a power vacuum that uproots the fragile peace between other gangs and sends the underworld into chaos. The show stems from an original idea from Evans and noted cinematographer Matt Flannery best known for lensing the brutal martial arts action scenes in Evans' The Raid and The Raid 2.

Pulse is producing with Jane Featherstone's Sister Pictures co-producing.

Both Evans and Flannery are directing the series as well as writing alongside co-scribes Peter Berry, Clare Wilson and Joe Murtagh. Benski and Lucas Ochoa are executive producing for Pulse next to Featherstone and Sky Atlantic's Anna Ferguson. Gangs Of London is being commissioned by Sky's Head of Drama Anne Mensah and Kary Antholis, President of Miniseries at HBO and President of Programming at Cinemax.

via Deadline:
“It has been a thrilling experience to leap into longform storytelling, exploring a multicultural world of global crime as it intersects on the streets of London,” [Evans] added.

Mensah called Gangs of London an “unrivalled spectacle with characters to match”, while Antholis said it was a “fun, adrenalized and entertaining series that will be catnip for audiences”.
Evans is also in tow with Dan Stevens headlining suspense thriller, Apostle, and an adaptation of DC Comics character, Deathstroke, for DC Entertainment.
