Casting has been announced for Russell T Davies’ new Channel 4 series BOYS, featuring Nicholas Blane and Tatsu Carvalho.
The five-part drama series will follow the arrival of young friends in 1981-era London against the growing AIDS crisis, which would change the lives of many in the LGBTQ+ community over the decade.
An official synopsis reads: ‘It’s 1981, the start of a new decade and Ritchie, Roscoe and Colin begin a new life in London. Strangers at first, these young gay lads, and their best friend Jill, find themselves thrown together, and soon share each other’s adventures. ‘But a new virus is on the rise, and soon their lives will be tested in ways they never imagined. As the decade passes, and they grow up in the shadow of AIDS, they’re determined to live and love more fiercely than ever.’
