‘Traitors’ trailer: Keeley Hawes stars in new 1940s spy thriller series – watch!

The first trailer has been released for Channel 4’s Traitors.

Set in 1945 London, the new six-part period drama series is described as “a compulsive spy thriller that takes us behind the scenes of a seismic moment in global history, through the eyes of one young woman caught in the middle of it.”

Traitors is created by award-winning playwright and screenwriter Bash Doran (Boardwalk Empire).

Keeley Hawes (Bodyguard, The Durrells) and Emma Appleton (Clique) lead the cast, alongside Michael Stuhlbarg (The Shape Of Water), Luke Treadaway (Fortitude), Brandon P Bell (Dear White People), Stephen Campbell Moore (The Last Post) and Matt Lauria (Kingdom).

The official synopsis reads: “…Traitors is the dangerous, enthralling story of Feef, who is seduced by a rogue American spy into spying on her own country. Her task? To uncover a Russian agent in the heart of the British Government.”

Traitors begins in the UK on Channel 4 in February and will be available globally on Netflix later this year.

Keeley Hawes also returns with a final season of The Durrells this spring on ITV.

The Durrells is available on DVD on Amazon.
