Adding to their recent list of classic series, Talking Pictures TV will broadcast Widows, a gritty crime drama series from the 1980s.
Made by ‘Euston Films’ for ‘Thames Television’ between 1983 and 1985, two series were written by crime writer Lynda La Plante. The series followed the wives of a London gang who decide to carry out the plans of their deceased husbands and execute an armed robbery. The series, which had Verity Lambert as executive producer, was nominated for the British Academy Television Award for Best Drama Series or Serial in 1984.
The show features strong female characters played by Ann Mitchell, Maureen O’Farrell, Fiona Hendley, and Eva Mottley with Debby Bishop, Maurice O’Connell and David Calder.
Episode 1 of WIDOWS will air on Wednesday the 28th of August at 9pm, continuing every week on the same day and time.
