The challengers in the illegal races are each drawn to the dangerous world of racing for their own desperate reasons, the producers said.

Matthew Read (“Hammer of the Gods”) created the show. The cast also includes Robert Glenister (“Spooks”), Aimee-Ffion Edwards (“Peaky Blinders”), Rose Williams (“Reign”), Elijah Rowen (“Vikings”), and Guz Khan (“Borderline”).

Speaking of the new venture, Sky's drama chief Anne Mensah said: “Funny, emotionally truthful, visceral and above all fast, ‘Curfew’ is the perfect Sky One show. Matthew Read has created fantastically memorable, sometimes shocking, always fascinating characters.”
