Rylance, Pegg Dip Into Cyber Warfare Series


Mark Rylance and Simon Pegg are joining Peacock and Channel 4’s cyber warfare thriller “The Undeclared War” being produced by Playground Entertainment.

Writer/director Peter Kosminky (“Wolf Hall”) will pen and direct the six-part series which also stars Adrian Lester, Maisie Richardson-Sellers and Alex Jennings.

Set in 2024 against the backdrop of an upcoming British general election involving the UK’s first Black Conservative prime minister (Lester).

The story tracks a leading team of analysts at the heart of the UK’s NSA-style spy agency GCHQ as they attempt to ward off a cyber-attack on the country’s electoral system.

Pegg plays the GCHQ operational chief, Rylance an ex-analytical master brought back into the fold to support former colleagues, Richardson-Sellers an American cyber-analyst on loan from the NSA, and Jennings as the head of GCHQ.
