About the project

From the directors behind Gotham and CSI. Aadrenalized and vibrant, the show is packed full of dramatic incidents and colourful characters. From a booby trapped cannabis farm in a suburban semi to an elderly farmer’s wife with a shotgun, the stories are surprising and exciting. 

The cast is fronted by Ashley Walters (‘Top Boy’) Peter Sullivan (‘The Borgias’), Amanda Abbington (‘Sherlock’), Shaun Dooley (‘Exile’), Paul Ready (‘Ripper Street’), Eleanor Matsuura (‘Utopia’) and Alex Carter (‘Hollyoaks’).

“Cuffs is not just a fast-paced police procedural – it also explores the personal lives of Brighton’s police force, with Walters’ Ryan portrayed as a single dad of two children. BBC One’s new cop drama Cuffs debuted with a decent 4.22m (20.5%) viewers.”

“The characters are charismatic and well-drawn … the cast really sell the dialogue. Plus, it’s genuinely fun to see Brighton on screen. This opening hour of Cuffs certainly arrested our attention.”
