This week’s new telly trailers include two new BBC One dramas, Channel 4’s Phillip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams and the return of Russell Howard.

Here are the latest telly trailers to have hit the internet this week…

Gunpowder | BBC One, Coming Soon

This week, BBC One released the trailer for their new three-part drama, Gunpowder, which stars Kit Harington, Peter Mullan, Mark Gatiss and Liv Tyler and tells the story of the Gunpowder Plot in London in 1605.

Every year on November 5 the English mark the discovery of the Gunpowder Plot with bonfires and fireworks. It is often called Guy Fawkes Day because many people believe – erroneously – that the plot was devised by Guy Fawkes.

However, while Fawkes played a pivotal role, the man who dreamed up the plot and was its driving force was Robert Catesby (Harington), a 33-year old Warwickshire gentleman.

Kit stars alongside Peter Mullan as Father Garnet, Mark Gatiss as the Spymaster Robert Cecil, and Liv Tyler as Ann Vaux.

Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams | Channel 4, September

Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams is one of the most highly-anticipated dramas of the year and is an anthology series of ten, epic standalone episodes, each set in a different and unique world.

Each episode is inspired by one of Philip K. Dick’s renowned short stories and has been adapted by an exciting list of leading British and American writers and directors.

The series also features an all-star cast who head up this thrilling, audacious and emotional journey into the far reaches of imagination. This cast includes; Timothy Spall, Bryan Cranston, Janelle Monae, Anne Reid, Anna Paquin, Steve Buscemi, Terrence Howard and Richard Madden.

Rellik | BBC One, Tuesday 11th September at 9pm on BBC One

From the makers of The Missing, comes new six-part drama Rellik for BBC One.

What makes a serial killer? Or the cop who is compelled to relentlessly track them down? What are the events that form a person into the human being they will become – killer or cop?

Rellik (killer spelled backwards) is a structural conceit which turns the serial killer story on its head. The perpetrator is caught before the drama moves backwards in time to the very beginning – the crime itself and ultimately the killer.

The series stars Richard Dormer as damaged and disfigured Met detective, Gabriel Markham and Jodi Balfour plays Gabriel’s partner Elaine, a bright and intense detective, eager to please.

The Russell Howard Hour | Sky 1, Thursday 21st September

Fresh off the back of his biggest ever international tour, Russell Howard’s new show will see him offer his unique take on the week’s news and current affairs.
