Check out Gary Oldman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Jonathan Pryce and Olivia Cooke in Slow Horses

Apple TV+ today revealed the premiere date and a first look at the keenly anticipated espionage series, Slow Horses, starring Academy Award-winner Gary Oldman, which will make its worldwide debut on Friday, April 1, 2022. The six-episode drama adapted from CWA Gold Dagger Award-winning Mick Herron’s first novel in the “Slow Horses” series will premiere globally on Apple TV+ with the first two episodes, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday.

“Slow Horses” follows a team of British intelligence agents who serve in a dumping ground department of MI5 – Slough House. Oldman stars as Jackson Lamb, the brilliant but irascible leader of the spies who end up in Slough House due to their career-ending mistakes. Joining Oldman is a decorated ensemble cast including Academy Award-nominee Kristin Scott Thomas (“Darkest Hour”), Academy Award-nominee Jonathan Pryce (“The Two Popes”), BAFTA Scotland Award-winner Jack Lowden (“Dunkirk”), and Olivia Cooke (“Sound of Metal”).

Check out the book synopsis below.

Slough House is the outpost where disgraced spies are banished to see out the rest of their derailed careers. Known as the ‘slow horses’ these misfits have committed crimes of drugs and drunkenness, lechery and failure, politics and betrayal while on duty.

In this drab and mildewed office these highly trained spies don’t run ops, they push paper. Not one of them joined the Intelligence Service to be a slow horse and the one thing they have in common is they want to be back in the action.

When a boy is kidnapped and held hostage, his beheading is scheduled for live broadcast on the net. And whatever the instructions of their masters at the Intelligence Service headquarters, the slow horses aren’t going to just sit quiet and watch.

The series is produced for Apple by See-Saw Films and adapted for television by Will Smith (“Veep”). Graham Yost executive produces alongside Smith. Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta, Iain Canning, Emile Sherman, Gail Mutrux and Douglas Urbanski also serve as executive producers on the series. James Hawes directs all six episodes and executive produces.
