Sky One Releases “First Look” Trailer For Nick Mohammed Comedy ‘Intelligence’ Starring David Schwimmer
Sky has released a “first look” trailer for ‘Intelligence‘, a new original comedy from Nick Mohammed starring David Schwimmer, which premieres Friday, 21st February 2020 on Sky One and NOW TV.
Created and written by Nick Mohammed, ‘Intelligence’ is a workplace comedy set in the UK’s GCHQ, described by Sky as “a kind of weedier, geekier version of MI5”, (I’m sure they love that description…) where they tackle international and domestic Cyber Crime from a desktop.
When an arrogant, maverick NSA agent Jerry (David Schwimmer) comes over from the U.S. to join the team, he enlists an inept and tactless computer analyst Joseph (Nick Mohammed) in a power grab that threatens to disrupt the team’s ability to combat cyber terrorism.
Schwimmer is, of course, best known as Ross from ‘Friends’, along with starring more recently in ‘American Crime Story: The People v. OJ Simpson’. Nick Mohammed is a comedian, actor and writer, who voiced Piglet in the live-action ‘Christopher Robin’ movie, along with popping up in films such as ‘The Martian’, and played the Carpet Bros Manager, Roopesh, in our beloved sitcom ‘Uncle’.
The 6x30min comedy also stars Sylvestra Le Touzel (‘The Crown’, ‘Utopia’), Jane Stanness (‘Sally4Ever’, ‘Hunderby’), Gana Bayarsaikhan (‘Peaky Blinders’, ‘Wonder Woman’), Oliver Birch (‘National Theatre Live: Treasure Island’), Eliot Salt (‘GameFace’) and Colin Salmon (‘Krypton’, ‘Silent Witness’).
‘Intelligence’ is a co-production with Expectation and Dark Harbor Stories. The executive producers are Nerys Evans for Expectation, along with stars Mohammed and Schwimmer. Commissioned by Jon Mountague, Sky’s Director of Comedy and Zai Bennett, Director of Programming for Sky Entertainment UK & Ireland. The commissioning editor is Morwenna Gordon for Sky. Sales for Intelligence will be handled by NBCUniversal Global Distribution.
All episodes of ‘Intelligence‘ Season 1 will be available on Sky One and NOW TV from Friday, 21st February 2020.
