Drama, adventure and history are set to collide in SAS Rogue Heroes, a brand new series from Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight.
SAS Rogue Heroes is based on the bestselling book by Ben Macintyre which tells the story of how the world’s greatest Special Forces unit, the SAS, was formed under extraordinary circumstances in the darkest days of World War Two – it has been described as the “exhilarating story of renegade men taking monumental risks in extraordinary circumstances”.
An announcement about the series from BBC One tells us: “Cairo, 1941. David Stirling – an eccentric young officer, hospitalised after a training exercise went wrong – is bored.
“Convinced that traditional commando units don’t work, he creates a radical plan that flies in the face of all accepted rules of modern warfare. He fights for permission to recruit the toughest, boldest and brightest soldiers for a small undercover unit that will create mayhem behind enemy lines.
“More rebels than soldiers, Stirling’s team are every bit as complicated, flawed and reckless as they are astonishingly brave and heroic.”
SAS:Rogue Heroes begins on BBC1 on Sunday 30th October and runs for 6 weeks.
