ITV commissions four part drama Hatton Garden written by Jeff Pope and Terry Winsor and produced by ITV Studios.
Hatton Garden will depict the audacious jewellery and cash burglary at the heart of London’s diamond district executed by an elderly gang of career criminals across the Easter Bank Holiday weekend in April 2015.
Cannes Film Festival Best Actor Award winner Timothy Spall OBE, Olivier award-winning actor Kenneth Cranham and Brian F. O’Byrne recently seen in Jeff Pope’s real life drama, Little Boy Blue, will play leading roles. Fellow distinguished actors David Hayman, Alex Norton, Ian Puleston-Davies, Geoff Bell and Nasser Memarzia will join them to play the men responsible for the daring raid.
The 4 x 60 minute drama tells the inside story of how the men pulled off the heist which was considered in a class of its own in terms of scale and ambition, and the extraordinary level of planning, preparation and organisation required to penetrate the vault of the Hatton Garden Safety Deposit Company.
Hatton Garden sheds light on how the gang meticulously planned the raid, the tensions amongst the group, the loss of livelihoods suffered by the box holders and the complex police operation that captured the gang.
Filming will commence in June in the inner London area.
