Grant to appear in C4 crime drama
Richard E Grant is to star in a new Channel 4 drama about the criminal underworld set in Brighton.
The cast of The Fear will be headed by Peter Mullan - who won acclaim in the movie Tyrannosaur - playing a crime boss-turned-entrepreneur.
The four-part series also sees former EastEnders actor Paul Nicholls and Harry Lloyd - who appeared in the acclaimed BBC adaptation of Great Expectations - playing his sons.
Peter portrays Richie Beckett whose past in the crime world is masked by a new-found respectability as he tries to revamp the city's West Pier. But his world is thrown into turmoil due to the impact of the Albanian mafia and aggressive early-onset dementia.
Richard plays a plastic surgeon who himself has a dark past which is intertwined with Beckett and his wife Jo (Anastasia Hille).
The hour-long episodes were written by Richard Cottan, who worked on BBC crime drama Wallander, and will be filmed around Brighton.
