‘The Driver’ BBC Drama: New TV Series Trailer Released

Here’s a look at the newly released full-length trailer for BBC One’s upcoming drama The Driver, starring David Morrissey.

The three-part series tells the story of taxi driver Vince McKee, an ordinary guy who due to frustration with work and his personal life, ends up making a terrible decision. Watching the dramatic and very promising trailer, we now get a big clue as to what this decision turns out to be.

Speaking about the highly anticipated 2014 television drama, writer Danny Brocklehurst (Clocking Off, Accused, Exile) said: “The Driver is a passion project for me and I’m proud of the way it is both a character drama and a thriller. As with all my work there is a strong emotional core and it explores ordinary lives pushed into extraordinary situations.”

Morrissey, who is also an executive producer on the show, says: “It is the story of a mini cab driver who tries to turn his life around with the help of an old friend. Needless to say, things don’t go exactly according to plan!”

When does The Driver start on BBC One?

Though the BBC are currently yet to announce an official air date for The Driver, we expect a series premiere sometime around late September 2014. We’ll bring you more news and information on this thrilling new drama as it’s announced.
