Northern Irish writer Ronan Bennett has written and created BBC One’s four part conspiracy thriller ‘Hidden’, in collaboration with Walter Bernstein (The Magnificent Seven, The Money Trap, Fail Safe) which will begin Thursday October 6th at 9pm on BBC One.
Bennett is the Northern Irish author and screenwriter behind features including ‘Face’, ‘The Hamburg Cell’ and ‘Public Enemies’. The four part series, filmed on location in Belfast earlier this year, revolves around the efforts of small-time solicitor Harry Venn (Gelnister), who is forced to delve into his murky past.
Directed by Niall MacCormick (Wallander, The Long Walk to Finchley) and produced by Christopher Hall (Lost World, Hound of the Baskervilles), cast in the feature include Belfast actor Richard Dormer (My Boy Jack), who stars alongside Philip Glenister (Life on Mars) and Dutch actress Thekla Reuten (In Bruges). Dormer plays the role of Frank Hanna, a client of solicitor Harry (Glenister) who has been behind bars. Harry seeks help from Dormer’s resourceful and wily character who doesn’t do things by the book.
Ronan Bennett commented on writing the drama saying "I have really enjoyed collaborating with Walter on Hidden and I am delighted the drama has attracted such an outstanding cast. I hope the twists and turns of this conspiracy thriller will keep audiences hooked."
Executive Producer for BBC is Stephen Wright, Head of Drama for BBC Northern Ireland and David Thompson and Ed Rubin for production company Origin Pictures. The series will begin on BBC One on Thursday October 6th at 9pm on BBC One.
