What to expect from ‘Gangs of London’
The official trailer reads: Finn Wallace (Colm Meaney) was the most powerful criminal in London. Now, his son Sean (Joe Cole) must prove he's ready to take his father's place. What more, the press release further shed light on the summary of the show: "Set in the heart of one of the world’s most dynamic and multicultural cities, 'Gangs of London' tells the story of a city being torn apart by the turbulent power struggles of the international gangs that control it and the sudden power vacuum that’s created when the head of London’s most powerful crime family is assassinated. The series has been renewed for a second season with AMC on board to co-produce."
What will you get to see in the 10 episodes? As rivals continue to attack the family, Sean will have to take his father's place with the help of the Dumani family headed by Ed Dumani (Msamati), to take his father’s place. The summary also reads: "If the situation wasn’t already dangerous enough, Sean’s assumption of power causes ripples in the world of international crime. Perhaps the one man who might be able to help him and be his ally is Elliot Finch (Dìrísù), who up until now, has been one of life’s losers, a lowlife chancer with a mysterious interest in the Wallace family. But as the wind of fate blows, Elliot finds himself transported to the inner workings of the largest criminal organization in London. It doesn’t end with the Wallaces though, there are shadowy higher powers at play."
