Code 404 – Press Updates

Code 404 starring Daniel Mays and Stephen Graham premiers on Sky Wednesday 29 April at 10PM! All episode will be available on NOWTV the same day for binge watching. 

Code 404 revolves around two Detective Inspectors, DI John Major (Daniel Mays) and DI Roy Carver (Stephen Graham), who are the top crime fighting duo in the Unit. But when an undercover sting goes horribly wrong, Major is gunned down on the job and killed. How will the SIU function without Major? It doesn’t have to. As an ‘asset’ considered too valuable to lose, Major’s body is fast-tracked into an experimental Artificial Intelligence project to bring him back from the dead. The only problem is, Major 2.0 may look like and sound like the original, but something has been lost in translation – quite a lot actually. Somehow, Major’s error-strewn hunches and Carver’s scrambling to make good allows them to just about scrape by.

Good Omens – BBC Two

Get ready for the apocalypse!  Good Omens has it’s UK television premiere this evening at 9PM!

Described as equal parts humor and horror, fantasy and drama, Good Omens takes place when the Apocalypse is near and Final Judgment is set to descend upon humanity. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, and tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan — except that Aziraphale, a somewhat fussy angel, and Crowley, a fast-living demon, are not looking forward to the coming war, and someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

Daniel Mays stars as Arthur Young the unwitting father of the antichrist and David Tennant (Crawley) and Michael Sheen (Aziraphale) play the demon and angel trying to stall the end of the world as they know it.

Commenting on his casting back in August 2017, Daniel Mays said that he was: “Beyond overjoyed to be jumping on board Good Omens. It’s not everyday you get to play the father of the antichrist! Neil Gaiman’s scripts are out of this world and the cast they’ve assembled are second to none.

Good Omens airs weekly every Wednesday at 9PM on BBC Two. The series is also still available to watch on Amazon Prime Video world-wide.

Des – ITV

The Sun has the big news that Daniel Mays is set to star with David Tennant and Jason Watkins in ITV’s new drama “Des”.

Danny will portray Detective Chief Inspector Peter Jay the police officer who investigated the Muswell Hill crime scene. David Tennant will portray Dennis Nilsen, a former soldier and policeman, murdered at least a dozen boys and young men in his North ­London homes between 1978 and 1983. Jason Watkins will portray Brian Masters who wrote the biography on Nilsen.

ITV Press Release:

ITV’s head of drama, Polly Hill, said: “This starts with ­Nilsen’s arrest and is looking at him through the eyes of the police officer trying to identify those he killed and deliver ­justice. David Tennant is going to be brilliant as Nilsen and, with Daniel and Jason, this has an incredible cast.”

Written by Luke Neal, the three-part drama is based on material from Brian’s book Killing For Company, which features conversations with the twisted loner, known as “Des”.

Filming begins very soon with an expected transmission date sometime in 2020.
