Troy: Fall Of A City (BBC-1 2017, Louis Hunter, Bella Dayne)

Published

on

Troy: Fall Of A City is an epic tale of mortals and gods, David Farr’s psychologically rich and sweeping narrative goes back to the story’s origins: to the judgement of Paris, his scandalous love affair with Helen, and the ill-starred prophecy surrounding his birth.

Told from the perspective of the Trojan royal family at the heart of the siege, Troy: Fall Of A City is a rich story of love, intrigue, betrayal and belonging. Combining thrilling adventure with heart-breaking intimacy, it conveys the big themes of human existence and identity; of people battling to retain their sense of humanity and compassion amid the devastation and destruction of war.

Louis Hunter (The Fosters, Jack Goes Home) and Bella Dayne (Guerrilla, Humans) will star as Paris and Helen, the two lovers whose passionate affair plunges Greece and Troy into war, threatening to bring both empires to their knees.

Troy: Fall Of A City is filming on location in Cape Town and will premiere in the UK on BBC One and globally outside of the UK on Netflix.
