Sean Bean and Adam Brody are hoping to make Curfew stateside: The Game of Thrones and O.C. vets’ British street-racing drama will debut in the U.S. exclusively via Spectrum On Demand on Monday, June 24. All episodes will be available that day for free and without ads for Spectrum video subscribers.
Curfew is set in a near-future London, where “a mysterious illness has spread throughout the country, leaving a population gripped in fear,” per the official synopsis. “As an increasingly desperate government imposes a strict nightly curfew, there is only one hope for freedom, from the virus and from tyranny… an illegal and potentially deadly street race that takes place once a year.” The cast also includes Billy Zane (Titanic), Adrian Lester (Trauma) and Miranda Richardson (Good Omens).
