Steve McQueen takes John Boyega and Letitia Wright into real-life drama with the Small Axe trailer

Writer-director Steve McQueen’s first television effort is headed to Amazon and the BBC, and here’s our first look with the trailer for an anthology series called Small Axe (so as not to be confused with Gary Paulsen’s Hatchet, presumably). The five-part limited series features the likes of Letitia Wright and John Boyega. It’s inspired by real-life events in London’s Afro-Caribbean community, so get ready for some put-on accents of varying quality. And since it’s 2020, you’d better believe there’s some unchecked, racially-motivated police violence!

Small Axe hits Amazon and BBC One November 20.
