Sky Original series Atomic will begin production in Morocco next month.

The five-part action series stars Game of Thrones' and SAS Rogue Heroes' Alfie Allen, What's Love Got To Do With It's Shazad Latif, and Orange is the New Black's Samira Wiley.

Atomic follows Max (Allen) and Mohammed (Latif), two unlikely friends – and even less likely heroes – who become swept up in a cartel’s plot to transport uranium across North Africa. They face a monumental decision: save themselves or risk everything to prevent a nuclear bomb getting into the wrong hands.

Inspired by the non-fiction book ‘Atomic Bazaar’ by William Langewiesche, Atomic is produced by Pulse Films, a VICE Studios Group company, in association with Sky Studios. The series is written by Gregory Burke, with Jiwon Lee, Clare McQuillan and Ishy Din also on the writing team.

The series is directed by Shariff Korver, and the series producer is Peter McAleese. Executive producers are Jamie Hall and Judy Counihan for Pulse Films, Thomas Benski, Gregory Burke, and Sam Hoyle and Megan Spanjian for Sky Studios.
