The Smoke is an eight-part series following the day-to-day lives of a London firefighting crew. Written by Skins’ Lucy Kirkwood, it centres on firefighter Kev (Jamie Bamber) as he returns to work after a fire that left him injured and betrayed. The team grapple with second jobs, relationships and what it means to be a modern day hero amidst the struggles of their demanding work.
The cast is headlined by Bamber of Law & Order UK and Broadchurch’s Jodie Whittaker, alongside Rhashan Stone, Pippa Bennett-Warner and Taron Egerton.
The Smoke is due to air in early 2014 on Sky1.
