Los Angeles, June 10, 2019 – Spectrum Originals announced its new high-octane street race car drama series CURFEW today. The eight-episode event series will be exclusively available to Spectrum video subscribers free On Demand (without ads) on Monday, June 24th.
In a near-future London, a mysterious illness has spread throughout the country, leaving a population gripped in fear.

This series follows the twists and turns of one such race and its unexpected participants. With a thrilling ensemble cast that includes Sean Bean (Game of Thrones), Adam Brody (The O.C.) and Billy Zane (Titanic), Adrian Lester (Trauma) and Miranda Richardson(Good Omens), CURFEW is a fun, frenetic ride that explores the lengths ordinary people will go to race themselves free.
“CURFEWis a true love letter to genre in every way. Amidst the highest of stakes and the pulse-racing action, though, there is also a rare combination of humor, heart and hope. We are thrilled to partner with Sky, Tiger Aspect and the Moonage team on this exciting new event series,” said Katherine Pope, Head of Spectrum Originals.
CURFEWis written and executive produced by Matthew Read (Pusher, Hammer of the Gods).

What do you think? Are you a fan of gritty British shows? Will you watch Curfew?
I agree with PhilS. I have seen it also. I did struggle to get past episodes. I do think most people will know the ending well before the ending to be honest.
I have already see this show.
The premise is good and with a good cast.
It starts off with interest and towards the end gets very exciting but sadly does get a little bogged down in the middle, so some viewers might tune out after 3 or 4 episodes, even though getting to the end does make it worthwhile.
