Sky 1 HD sends an all-star cast on the holiday from hell
Woody (Beesley), Quinn (Glenister), Baxter (Simm) and Rick (Warren) have been friends since sixth form. The fifth member of their gang is Alvo (Ben Chaplin, Dorian Gray), a risk-taking opportunist who, having made his fortune in property, leads a luxurious lifestyle in Majorca. Now in their 40s, they’ve all taken different paths in life with varying degrees of success. When Alvo flies them to his extravagant villa to celebrate his early retirement, they enjoy a trip down memory lane. However, all does not go to plan and they find themselves entangled in a web of deception and murder involving beautiful police women, large yachts, Speedos and a rather short assassin in a Tony Blair mask…
Continuing Sky 1 HD’s dedication to homegrown high definition drama, Mad Dogs is a dark and twisted comic tale in which four ordinary guys discover how easily the line between friend and foe can be blurred. Dripping with paranoia and taking viewers on a journey from the sublime to the ridiculous, this four-parter springs surprises at every turn in a plot that pushes its characters to the limits, towards actions and decisions that they never thought possible.
Mad Dogs is directed by BAFTA® Award winner Adrian Shergold (Pierrepoint, Persuasion) from Cris Cole’s script. It is produced by the BAFTA Award-winning Left Bank Pictures with production services in Majorca provided by Palma Pictures in association with Fundació Mallorca Turisme.
Followed by a Q&A with Actor Marc Warren. Producer, Suzanne Mackie, Andy Harries and Writer and Creator Cris Cole.
