Showtime has finally premiered the trailer for its upcoming six-part miniseries Guerrilla.
Guerrilla stars Frieda Pinto, Babou Ceesay and Idris Elba (also an executive producer) and was created, written and directed by John Ridley (most known for his work on 12 Years a Slave and ABC’s critically acclaimed anthology series American Crime).
A love story set in one of the most explosive political times in U.K. history, “Guerrilla” tells the story of a 1970s London couple who liberates a political prisoner and forms a radical underground cell. The group targets the Black Power Desk, a true-life counter-intelligence unit within Special Branch dedicated to crushing all forms of black activism. Though set against a backdrop of social upheaval and activism, the story focuses on the relationship between the two characters at its center.
