Gay Spy Drama Series Coming To BBC

We know what we're watching in between episodes of Sherlock, Orphan Black, and Luther!!

BBC has just given the green-light to five-part gay spy drama series, London Spy!

According to Pink News:

It will be written by gay writer Tom Rob Smith, and will follow lead character Danny, who is described as “a gregarious, hedonistic, but ill-equipped spy”.

Danny falls in love with Alex, described as “anti-social and enigmatic,” but who later goes missing forcing Danny to attempt to find him.


Polly Hill, BBC head of independent drama commissioning, said: “This is a beautifully written love story, caught up in a spy thriller – a wonderfully complex and surprising story, of one man’s search for the truth.

“It promises to be a treat for the BBC Two audience, continuing the channel’s commitment to original authored drama.”

The show will air in 2015, and will begin production later this year.

We can't wait!

Any casting ideas, Instincters? Presumably they'll be casting a Brit in the lead. Tell us your picks in the comments!
