The writers of the James Bond films, Robert Wade and Neal Purvis has penned a new 5-part series, SS-GB, adapted from the novel by Len Deighton.

SS-GB is a thriller set in 1940’s London, with the premise that the Germans won the Battle Of Britain and London is under Nazi occupation. Archer is a Scotland Yard detective working under the SS facing the dilemma of whether to effectively collaborate or join the resistance. An explosive thriller that will ask: what would you do, faced with stakes as high as this?

Robert Wade and Neal Purvis say: “Len Deighton’s SS-GB is a brilliant tale of espionage that dares to think the unthinkable, and we are very excited to be adapting it for television.”

SS-GB is produced by Sid Gentle Films for BBC One. Executive produced by Sally Woodward Gentle and Lee Morris for Sid Gentle Films and Lucy Richer for the BBC.
