Are you ready for a gay spy series? London Spy is coming to BBC America! The five-part miniseries centers on a pair of star-crossed lovers -- Alex (Ben Whishaw, the bearded one below), an employee of the Secret Intelligence Service, and Danny (Edward Holcroft), a wild and free club-goer. The two fall hard and fast for each other, but then Alex disappears and Danny has to plumb the depths of the SIS to find him. The series will debut in 2015, but no official release date has been announced.
The gay love story is at the heart of London Spy, not just an add-on or something fans will have to guess at (like they do on Sherlock).
Joining Whishaw and Holcroft are Charlotte Rampling (who will star in Broadchurch 2 in January 2015) and Oscar-winning actor Jim Broadbent.
