Peacock has a norm of delivering pulse-pounding pieces. The platform’s upcoming project, Trigger Point, is a clear piece of evidence.
The series is a British true-crime thriller that blends The Hurt Locker’s exceptional human drama with the 24’s thrills. Trigger Point joins Vigil and The Capture on Peacock’s British drama list.
What’s 'Trigger Point' About?
Trigger Point is set in the overly-pressured bomb disposal world, starring Adrian Lester playing Joel Nutkins and Vicky McClure impersonating Lana Washington. The pair of officers are forced to risk their lives during the heart of London’s terrorist campaign.
One summer, the capital is threatened by a terrorist campaign prompting the Expos to search for the mastermind behind the bombings before it gets intense.
Under the high pressure of investigations, Lana suspects that the terrorists are aiming at her unit- but how will she prove it and uncover the mastermind’s true identity?
