Exec Produced by Stephen Fry and Derek Jacobi, Two Down is a dark comedy thriller set in modern day London but inspired by the films of the 1970s. Alex Hassell (Surburbicon, The Miniaturist, Red Sea Diving Resort) is hitman John Thomas, who finds himself ambushed and hiding out at an old safe-house, only to find a new resident, Sophie (Tori Butler Hart; Edie, Keeping Rosy, The Isle), has moved in. Injured, he decides to wait for his partner to pick him up, keeping Sophie, and the local delivery boy (Graham Butler; Penny Dreadful), hostage. But as the hours pass and there’s no sign of his partner, they begin to piece things together and realise that John had been set up. The question is by whom. But why is Sophie so eager to get to the bottom of the events of the evening? There is more that one mystery that Mr. Thomas has to solve, and he’s quickly running out of time.
