In The Long Run

About the Show

Created by and starring Idris Elba (Luther), and inspired by his own 1980s inner-city London childhood, In the Long Run is a funny, warm-hearted portrait of a West African family making ends meet in Thatcher-era Britain. Walter and Agnes came to London from Sierra Leone 13 years ago and now live a quiet life with their son Kobna. But when Walters brother, Valentine, comes to stay, his exuberance and lust for life changes everything. Also starring comedy legend Bill Bailey as Walters neighbour and workmate Bagpipes, In The Long Run is a story about family, community and what home really means.

Season 1, 6x30 (premiered on Sky One in the UK in March 2018, distributed by Sky Vision).
