Idris Elba stars as an experienced negotiator who takes on a plane full of terrorists in Apple TV+’s new series, Hijack.
The series premieres on Apple TV+ on June 28 with the first two episodes, followed by a new episode every Wednesday until August 2.
Here’s an official synopsis:
Told in real time, “Hijack” is a tense thriller that follows the journey of a hijacked plane as it makes its way to London over a seven hour flight, and authorities on the ground scramble for answers. Elba will star as ‘Sam Nelson,’ an accomplished negotiator in the business world who needs to step up and use all his guile to try and save the lives of the passengers — but, his high-risk strategy could be his undoing. Panjabi will play the role of ‘Zahra Gahfoor,’ a counter terrorism officer who is on the ground when the plane is hijacked and becomes part of the investigation.
Created by George Kay and Jim Field Smith, ‘Hijacked’ also stars
Archie Punjabi, Christine Adams, Max Beesley, Eve Myles, Neil Maskell, Jasper Britton, Harry Michell, Aimee Kelly, Mohamed Elsandel and Ben Miles.
The seven-part series is executive produced by Kay and Field Smith, Idris Elba, Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta and Kris Thykier.
