The first trailer and promotional images have arrived online for Alex Rider, the new eight-part TV series based upon writer Anthony Horiwitz’s book series and starring Otto Farrant (Mrs.Wilson, War & Peace) as the teen spy alongside Brenock O’Connor (Game of Thrones), Vicky McClure (Line of Duty) and Stephen Dillane (Game of Thrones).
“I couldn’t be happier with this dramatization of my books,” states Horowtiz. “Otto Farrant is a superb Alex Rider, brilliantly supported by Brenock O’Connor as his best friend, Tom. “The series really captures the essence of the novels and I’m certain Alex Rider fans – and brand-new audiences – are going to enjoy this amazing adventure. This really seems to be Alex’s year with the 20th anniversary approaching, a new novel on the way and now this brilliant TV series, which I hope will appeal to everyone who grew up with the books.”
After the death of his uncle, the 14-year-old Alex Rider is forced to join the Special Operations Division of the UK’s secret intelligence service, MI6.
