Netflix and BBC are teaming up again to create Inside Man. This limited series is ambitious with an award-winning cast led by Steven Moffat (most famous for Sherlock and Doctor Who). He also created Dracula in collaboration with BBC and Netflix.
Paul McGuigan (Sherlock and Lucky Number Slevin Director) will oversee this ambitious series. He was also nominated for Emmys for his Sherlock work. Alex Mercer will also produce along with Moffat’s collaborator and wife Sue Vertue, BBC’s Ben Irving and Netflix’s Chris Sussman. Sussman described the script as “fiendishly clever”, while Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, added that the combination of the script and cast will create “television magic.”
Wenger stated in a statement for 2019:
“In our ongoing relationship with Steven and Sue Vertue, they sent us this mini-series which Steven had written on spec and we commissioned it instantly. The script is a page-turner and grips you from the outset, and Charlotte and I couldn’t resist bringing this story to BBC One.”
Here’s everything else we know about Netflix’s Inside Man:
Inside Man's plot is still secret. Only Steven Moffat, the creator of Inside Man, knows when it will conclude. Everything is so secretive that even Netflix or BBC don’t know the ending of the series. The truth is, Inside Man stars a U.S. death row prisoner, an English vicar, and a mathematics teacher locked in a basement. They meet in the most surprising way.
Netflix’s Inside Man will stand out the viewers among other series by having a stellar and star-studded cast, something Steven Moffat is also known for.
The main role will be played by Stanley Tucci, a Golden Globes nominee and Oscar winner. He is most well-known for his roles as The Lovely Bones and Spotlight.
David Tennant will join Tucci, who is well-known for his many iconic TV roles such as Doctor Who, Broadchurch and Jessica Jones. The cast of Inside Man will also include Dolly Wells (Dracula, The Pursuit of Love) and Lydia West (Dracula, It’s a Sin).
Current production status: Active development (Last updated: 04/13/2020)
Netflix’s Inside Man is currently slated to enter production in London on June 28, 2021 and is planned to take place 12 weeks. Moffat and Vertue said they can’t wait to “crawl out of our lockdown bunker” to get to work on the series.
Deadline has confirmed that Inside Man will only have four episodes.
We can expect Inside Man to debut on Netflix by 2022, based on the June production begin.
