Spectrum Originals Debuts New Event Series CURFEW
Spectrum Originals announced its new high-octane street race car drama series CURFEW today. The eight-episode event series will be exclusively available to Spectrum video subscribers free On Demand (without ads) on Monday, June 24th.
In a near-future London, a mysterious illness has spread throughout the country, leaving a population gripped in fear. As an increasingly desperate government imposes a strict nightly curfew, there is only one hope for freedom, from the virus and from tyranny... an illegal and potentially deadly street race that takes place once a year. This series follows the twists and turns of one such race and its unexpected participants. With a thrilling ensemble cast that includes Sean Bean (Game of Thrones), Adam Brody (The O.C.) and Billy Zane (Titanic), Adrian Lester (Trauma) and Miranda Richardson (Good Omens), CURFEW is a fun, frenetic ride that explores the lengths ordinary people will go to race themselves free.
"CURFEW is a true love letter to genre in every way. Amidst the highest of stakes and the pulse-racing action, though, there is also a rare combination of humor, heart and hope. We are thrilled to partner with Sky, Tiger Aspect and the Moonage team on this exciting new event series," said Katherine Pope, Head of Spectrum Originals.
