Sure why not: Dominic West, the actor best known as McNulty from HBO’s The Wire, is set to star in a six-part BBC show named The Hour. It’s set in 1956, centered around the launch of a news show, with a mysterious murder driving the plot.
Oh, and it’s being hailed as the British Mad Men. Not sure if the comparison is based on anything more than the anachronistic time period. The BBC’s been pumping out some quality programming of late, so yeah, this is definitely on the radar. [via Unlikely Words]
