Adapted from CWA Gold Dagger Award-winning Mick Herron’s first novel in the “Slow Horses” series, the six-episode drama will premiere globally on Apple TV+ with the first two episodes, followed by one episode weekly, every Friday.

“Slow Horses” is a darkly humorous espionage drama that follows a dysfunctional team of British intelligence agents who serve in a dumping ground department of MI5 known un-affectionately as 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 as they frequently find themselves blundering around the smoke and mirrors of the espionage world. The ensemble cast includes Academy Award nominee Kristin Scott Thomas, BAFTA Scotland Award winner Jack Lowden, Olivia Cooke, Saskia Reeves, Dustin Demri-Burns, Rosalind Eleazar, Christopher Chung, Paul Higgins, Freddie Fox, Chris Reilly, Steve Waddington, Paul Hilton, Antonio Aakeel, Peter Judd, and a special guest appearance by Academy Award nominee Jonathan Pryce.

The series is produced for Apple TV+ 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.

Apple TV+ offers premium, compelling drama and comedy series, feature films, groundbreaking documentaries, and kids and family entertainment, and is available to watch across all your favorite screens. After its launch on November 1, 2019, Apple TV+ became the first all-original streaming service to launch around the world, and has premiered more original hits and received more award recognitions faster than any other streaming service in its debut. To date, Apple Original films, documentaries and series have been honored with more than 211 wins and 950 award nominations and counting.

  1. “Slow Horses” never had a chance compared to the ‘sort of live’ DNC Studios production of the American Espionage Drama “Slow Mules”, playing now in DC for a limited time – Thank God! It stars Resident Joe “You know the thing” Biden with a supposed supporting cast of 81 million.

    I always wondered about that fake Oval Office building they had constructed.

    Anyway, the only thing “Slow Horses” has over it’s competitor is the expense of $4.99 a month in order to view. Whereas, “Slow Jackasses” can’t be priced because the cost of this production keeps going up and up and up and up and up and…

    Stick around for the “Stars” ratings below on what viewers think to this DNC production from the people themselves brought to you by the viewer rating system of RottenPeople.

    1. I’m sorry, BDS, aka Biden Derangement Syndrome, is the diagnoses of people who rubbed their knuckles together during last nights ‘dumpster fire’ SOTU address given by a person who, just the other day, walked masked in an open field, yet later, was surrounded indoors by unmasked throngs of hypocrites.

      If YOU can’t recognize that, you are seriously hopeless.
