Jared Harris (Mad Men) is set to star, alongside Stellan Skarsgård and Emily Watson (who is set to return to the BBC in King Lear this bank holiday Monday). But perhaps most excitingly of all, current up-and-coming darling and the woman who stole our hearts in Woman in White and Beast, Jessie Buckley, who is to be joined by War and Peace co-star Adrian Rawlins and Electric Dreams actor Paul Ritter.
Sky Atlantic's Chernobyl is all about events and aftermath of this appalling man-made catastrophe. Skarsgård (Good Will Hunting) is set to play Boris Scherbina, head of the Bureau for Fuel and Energy of the USSR, who comes into conflict with the political authorities as he attempts to control the immediate aftermath and half the escalating nuclear catastrophe.
Chernobyl will be available to watch on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV.
