Paramount+ Announces Premiere Date for Limited Series 'The Gold' Starring Hugh Bonneville, Jack Lowden and Dominic Cooper

Paramount+ has today announced the premiere date for its upcoming original limited series The Gold starring Hugh Bonneville, Jack Lowden and Dominic Cooper.

The 6-episode limited series will launch on Sunday, September 17 with its first two episodes. New episodes will then be released weekly every Sunday.

The series is inspired by the real-life events that took place on November 26, 1983, when six armed men broke into the Brink's-Mat security depot near London's Heathrow Airport, and inadvertently stumbled across gold bullion worth £26m. What started as a typical Old Kent Road armed robbery, according to detectives at the time, became a seminal event in British criminal history, remarkable not only for the scale of the theft - at the time the biggest in world history - but for its wider legacy. The disposal of the bullion caused the birth of large-scale international money laundering, provided the dirty money that helped fuel the London Docklands property boom, united blue and white collar criminals, and left controversy and murder in its wake.

In addition to Bonneville, Lowden and Cooper, the series stars Charlotte Spencer, Tom Cullen, Emun Elliott, Sean Harris, Ellora Torchia and Stefanie Martini.

Neil Forsyth created the series. He executive produces with Tommy Bulfin, Ben Farrell, Kate Laffey, Claire Sowerby-Sheppard and directors Aneil Karia and Lawrence Gough. Paramount Television International Studios and Tannadice Pictures produce.
