Sky has released some “first look” images for new Sky Original series Small Town, Big Story, from the mind of Chris O’Dowd (Moone Boy), starring Christina Hendricks and Paddy Considine.

The six-part series is about a rural town of rattled misfits on the border of Ireland and another world, and what happens when a Hollywood production rolls into town, throwing a spotlight on a secret that’s been kept hidden since the eve of the Millennium.

Paddy Considine (House of the Dragon, The World’s End) plays Séamus Proctor, the local doctor, who is a respected pillar of the community. He has a neat and well-ordered life, or at least he thinks he does. Soon he will find himself in the eye of a storm as a celluloid circus descends, threatening to blow open a secret he has been harboring since the Millennium.

Christina Hendricks (Good Girls, Mad Men) plays Wendy Patterson, a local girl who found success as a TV producer in Los Angeles and returns to Drumbán after over 20 years, having left under something of a cloud. Back in the chaotic microcosm of Drumbán, this time with a film crew in tow, Wendy is caught between her past and her epic new production.

The third image depicts the locals in The White Ridge bar, a quintessential Irish pub at the heart of the village. A gathering place for a band of Drumbánian oddballs, including Keith McCurdle (David Wilmot), Barbara the butcher (Michelle Forbes), Matt Magee (Peter McGann), and barkeep Shelly McGoldrick (Evanne Kilgallon).

‘Small Town, Big Story’ is a Sky Original series produced by Playground / FilmNation Entertainment and HotCod Productions in association with Sky Studios. Executive producers are Colin Callender and Scott Huff for Playground, Glen Basner, Milan Popelka and Stefanie Berk for FilmNation Entertainment, and Alex Moody for Sky Studios. Christina Hendricks and Chris O’Dowd are executive producers, Liz Gill is series producer. Directors include Chris O’Dowd, Catherine Morshead, as well as Mike Ahern and Enda Loughman. NBCUniversal Global TV Distribution handle international sales of the series on behalf of Sky Studios.
