When Flight KA29 is hijacked during its seven-hour journey from Dubai to London, Sam Nelson—an accomplished corporate negotiator—tries using his professional skills to save everyone on board. Will this high-risk strategy be his undoing?

Created by George Kay and Jim Field Smith, this seven-part thriller stars SAG-winning and Emmy Award-nominated Idris Elba (“The Wire”, “Luther”), with a large cast including Neil Maskell (“Kill List”, “Utopia”), Archana Panjabi (“The Good Wife”) and Eve Myles (“Keeping Faith”).

The series is written by George Kay (“Lupin,” “Criminal”) and directed by Jim Field Smith (“Criminal,” “The Wrong Mans”), who will both also serve as executive producers alongside Elba, Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta and Kris Thykier. “Hijack” is produced by 60Forty Films and Idiotlamp Productions in association with Green Door.
