Today the BBC have released the first trailer for their new prison thriller Time, starring Sean Bean and Stephen Graham, along with 20 first look images.

Written by Jimmy McGovern, Time will air weekly from Sunday 6th June, with all three episodes available on BBC iPlayer that evening.

Sean Bean plays Mark Cobden who is newly imprisoned, consumed by guilt for his crime, and way out of his depth in the volatile world of prison life.

He meets Stephen Graham's character, Eric McNally, an excellent prison officer doing his best to protect those in his charge. However, when one of the most dangerous inmates identifies his weakness, Eric faces an impossible choice; between his principles and his family.

Sean Bean and Stephen Graham star as two men on the edge in this emotional and thrilling portrayal of life in a British prison. What does it take to survive?

Time also stars Siobhan Finneran, Sue Johnston, Hannah Walters, David Calder, Nadine Marshall, Michael Socha, Aneurin Barnard, Jack McMullen and James Nelson-Joyce.

Time starts Sunday 6th June at 9pm on BBC One
