Peak Blinders Creator Steven Knight Looking For Skinheads For New Series

The creator of the popular BBC series Peaky Blinders has put out a casting call for a new BBC Drama This Town – and is looking for skinheads to feature in it.

The new show has been described as a high-octane thriller and family saga. A synopsis for the show reads: “This Town tells the story of an extended family and four young people who are drawn into the world of ska and two-tone music, which exploded from the grassroots of Coventry and Birmingham in the late ’70s and early ’80s, uniting black, white and Asian youths.”

It’s set to feature Levi Brown, Jordan Bolger, Ben Rose and Eve Austin as the four young leads with filming taking beginning earlier this month in Wolverhampton.

Steven Knight spoke about the series last year saying it was a ‘project close to my heart”. He continued by saying: “It’s about an era I lived through and know well and it involves characters who I feel I grew up with.

“It’s a love letter to Birmingham and Coventry but I hope people from all over the world will relate to it.”

If you’re hankering for some more Peaky Blinders, it was announced last year that there would be a Peaky Blinders stage show along with a feature-length film.
