BBC Crime Series The Interceptor Airs Tomorrow: See Our Interview With Lead Star O-T Fagbenle

The Interceptor is a BBC One crime series with lead actor O-T Fagbenle and is set to air tomorrow. O-T was named as one of the Top 30 Actors to Watch in 2014 by Backstage Magazine. O-T has appeared in several films and TV productions including the film Breaking and Entering, and programmes Death in Paradise, Agatha Christie’s Marple and HBO’s Looking.

The Interceptor delves into the adventures of a dedicated surveillance team known as the UNIT. Keeping their quarries under ultra-tight surveillance, they take us into the real world inhabited by the criminals of today. And it’s easy to recognise because it’s the same world the rest of us inhabit.

O-T Fagbenle (Looking, Thorne, Walter’s War) leads the cast as Ash, whose dream of bringing down the biggest fish in the criminal underworld comes a step closer when he’s recruited to the UNIT. His knowledge of the street could be priceless, but with it comes an uncompromising way of doing things and ultimately forces Ash into a life-changing predicament: how far is he prepared to go to keep the streets safe for others at the risk of causing irreparable damage to his own life?
