Trailer for Jimmy McGovern's Common

BBC One will air Common, a feature-length film by Cracker creator Jimmy McGovern, on Sunday the 6th of July...

It may not have a sci-fi, fantasy or cult bone in its body, but it's tremendous original UK drama and as such, we didn't think you'd mind us sneaking Jimmy McGovern's Common onto the site.

Due to air on BBC One on Sunday the 6th of July, the ninety-minute film tells the story of a teenager dragged into a murder investigation that threatens to upturn his entire life. The cast, as McGovern's casts tend to be, has no weak links, from Game Of Thrones' Michelle Fairley and Robert Pugh to Susan Lynch, Daniel Mays, Jodhi May and relative newcomer Nico Mirallegro.

Here's the first trailer for the feature-length drama from the creator of CrackerThe Street and the terrific Accused.

I'm all up for "Original British Drama" but another murder investigation? I'm sorry, but I will skip this.

DoG to call Nico Mirallegro a new comer, is simply an insult..where have you been !!

So pumped. Looks like it'll be a good one.

I saw this at a preview screening the the BFI, outstanding acting and the story behind it really is incredible.

looking forward to this.. Mirallegro is fast becoming 'one to watch' I believe... and McGovern writes brilliant drama!
