Eddie Izzard and Hugo Speer team up for new drama

Eddie Izzard, Hugo Speer, Joanne Whalley and Kerry Fox are to star in a major new drama for Channel 4 next April. 40 is described as an "intense, provocative and explicit" new drama by writer Bryan Elsley. It revolves around a group of old school acquaintances, now in their 40's, whose lives are linked by their sexual and emotional secrets. A spokesman for Channel 4 said: "The brittle surface of their world cracks to reveal an undercurrent of discontent and sexual frustration."


Everybody has secrets. But some are darker than others...

EDDIE IZZARD, JOANNE WHALLEY, HUGO SPEER and KERRY FOX head the cast of 40, a powerful new three-part drama for Channel Four by Bryan Elsley (The Young Person's Guide to becoming A Rock Star, The Crow Road, Nature Boy).

40 goes to the heart of the lives of seven people who are intimately linked by their hidden sexual and emotional secrets. Intense, provocative and explicit, 40 deals with the pleasure as well as the pain of giving in to others, coming to terms with yourself and the shocking consequences of owning up.

The cast also includes NIMMY MARCH, VINCENT REGAN and MARK BENTON. 40 is directed by David Moore (The Forsyte Saga) and produced by Emma Burge (Ella and the Mothers) and Stewart Barlow (Rose and Maloney).
