Political drama Roadkill is set to bring Hugh Laurie back to UK screens this autumn but just when is Roadkill’s BBC release date?
Hugh Laurie has spent so much time appearing on US TV over the years, primarily as Dr Gregory House, that it’s easy to forget that the 61-year-old actor is actually British at times.
Well, that’s about to change at long last, as the former Blackadder and Night Manager star is bouncing back onto the BBC in 2020 with Roadkill.
The political drama stars Laurie as Peter Laurence, a scandal-bound politician with lofty ambitions.
But just when is Roadkill’s BBC release date?
Roadkill on BBC One
Roadkill, which is written by David Hare (Collateral) and stars Hugh Laurie in its lead role, tells the story of Peter Laurence.
He is a high-ranking politician with even loftier ambitions whose personal and private life are on the verge of collapse.
A host of scandalous secrets cloud Peter’s past and with enemies all around, his attempts to win the ultimate prize may easily be thwarted.
