Noughts + Crosses, the BBC adaptation of Malorie Blackman’s bestselling YA series, is coming to the U.S. after Peacock boarded the drama.
The streamer will air the six-part series as a Peacock Original from September 4.
Originally commissioned by the British public broadcaster in 2016, the drama launched in the UK in March.
From Victoria producer Mammoth Screen, When They See Us producer Participant and Jay Z’s Roc Nation, the series follows two young people: Sephy, played by newcomer Masali Baduza, and Callum, played by Peaky Blinders’ Jack Rowan, who are divided by their colour but united by love.
Sephy is a ‘Cross’, a member of the black ruling class and daughter of a prominent politician. Callum is a ‘Nought’, a white member of the underclass. The two have been friends since early childhood but their relationship grows ever more complicated as they come of age. It’s the story of two families separated by power and prejudice but forever entwined by fate.
