A Nuclear Bomb Thriller Series in Development at Sky Titled ATOMIC — GeekTyrant

Sky is developing a high-stakes thriller about a nuclear bomb titled Atomic, and it’s inspired by the non-fiction book Atomic Bazaar by Vanity Fair journalist William Langewiesche.

The story center on Max and Mohammed, “two unlikely friends – and even less likely heroes – become swept up in a cartel’s plot to transport uranium across North Africa. The pair face a monumental decision: save themselves or risk everything to prevent a nuclear bomb getting into the wrong hands.

“Pursued by Cassie Elliott (Wiley) – a highly skilled CIA agent whose life mission is to prevent terrorists from acquiring a nuclear bomb – along with MI6 and a network of traffickers, Max and Mohammed find themselves in the absurd situation of, for once, having to be the good guys.”

The series stars Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones) and Shazad Latif (Star Trek: Discovery, What’s Love Got To Do With It). They are joined by Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale, Orange is the New Black).

Atomic will be written by Gregory Burke (Rebus) and directed by Shariff Korver (Temple).Burke said in a statement: “I am thrilled to bring the world of Atomic to life with the brilliant director Shariff Korver and such a wonderful cast.

“It is a story about the terrifying prospect of a world where nuclear weapons are easier to acquire than ever before, and about the infinite possibilities that exist within the best of us and the worst of us.”
