Paramount+ has revealed its upcoming original UK drama, under the working title Curfew, from Vertigo Films in association with Evolutionary Films is now filming in and around London.
The six-part crime thriller is set in a society where all men live under ‘The Women’s Safety Act’ and are bound by a curfew from 7PM to 7AM. Their movements are tracked by an ankle tag 24 hours a day. When a woman’s body is discovered, brutally murdered during curfew hours and left on the steps of the Women’s Safety Centre, veteran Police officer Pamela Green believes that a man is responsible. But in a world where men are bound by the curfew system, her theory is rejected. The introduction of The Women’s Safety Act almost three years ago is widely considered as effective at protecting women, who have been able to go out at night without looking over their shoulders, and nobody wants to hear different.

If Pamela proves a man committed this murder, it could bring The Women’s Safety Act crashing down - people in high places are determined to make the curfew a success and will do all it takes to prevent Pamela from discovering the truth.

Stay Close's Sarah Parish stars as Pamela, joined by Mitchell Robertson as rookie cop Eddie. Doctor Who's Mandip Gill joins the cast as Sarah, an employee at the local tagging centre at the heart of Pamela and Eddie’s investigation and Alexandra Burke plays Helen, a well intentioned local school teacher and advocator for the curfew.

Joasia Goldyn serves as director of the series, from a script by Lydia Yeoman. Yeoman is joined by writers Jess Green and Sumerah Srivastav for episodes three and five respectively.

Vertigo's Allan Niblo, Jane Moore and Nathalie Peter-Contesse are executive producing, with John Adams as producer. Federation Studios will handle global sales.
