They'll star in Code 404 which is set in the in the Special Investigation Unit at the London Met.
Filming for the police comedy series starts in March. The six-part series is set in the near future and will revolve around two Detective Inspectors, DI John Major (Daniel Mays) and DI Roy Carver (Stephen Graham), who are the top crime fighting duo in the Unit.
But when an undercover sting goes horribly wrong, Major is gunned down on the job and killed.
How will the SIU function without Major? It doesn’t have to. As an ‘asset’ considered too valuable to lose, Major’s body is fast-tracked into an experimental Artificial Intelligence project to bring him back from the dead.
