TV City and the City, The (BBC-2 2017, David Morrissey, Mandeep Dhillon) Published 2 years ago on April 16, 2017 In The City in the City, the body of a foreign student is discovered in the streets of the down at heel city of Besźel. Cases like this are run of the mill for Inspector Tyador Borlú of the Extreme Crime Squad – until his investigations uncover evidence that the dead girl had come from another city called Ul Qoma. But the relationship between the two cities defies comprehension and will challenge everything Borlú holds dear. David Morrissey heads a cast which includes Mandeep Dhillon as Constable Corwi of the Besźel Policzai, Maria Schrader as Senior Detective Dhatt of the Ul Qoma Militsya, Ron Cook as Borlú’s superior Commissar Gadlem, Danny Webb as hard-right nationalist politician Major Syedr, and Christian Camargo as Doctor Bowden, an American academic. David Morrissey says: “I am delighted to be working with the brilliant Tony Grisoni again on this exciting project. I am a huge fan of the original book by China Miéville.” Executive producer Preethi Mavahalli says: “Set in divided cities where communities live cheek by jowl, choosing what they see, and ‘unsee’, this is a story that explores the way we live together today. The City And The City is a noir thriller with a fantastical twist which will quite literally break boundaries with its unique take on the murder mystery.” The City And The City will be filmed on location in Manchester and Liverpool. cast David Morrissey as Inspector Tyador Borlu Mandeep Dhillon as Constable Corwi Maria Schrader as Senior Detective Dhatt Ron Cook as Commissar Gadlem Danny Webb as Major Syedr Christian Camargo as Doctor Bowden key behind the scenes crew China Miéville as Original Author Tony Grisoni as Writer Betsan Morris-Evans as Producer Tom Shankland as Director Robyn Slovo as Executive Producer Preethi Mavahalli as Executive Producer Damien Timmer as Executive Producer Lucy Richer as Executive Producer show type Crime drama with futuristic/scifi overtones broadcast from In production for broadcast in 2017 network and production companies BBC Two – Mammoth BBCDamien TimmerDanny WebbDavid MorrisseyMaria SchraderRon CookSciFiTony GrisoniTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes21 hours ago Strike Back: Season 7 Episode 5 (Cinemax Fri 22 Feb 2019) Episode 5: Following a high-speed jungle ambush in Myanmar, the suitcase nukes end up in the hands of Jean-Baptiste Zaza...
