BBC One has released a first look image of Hugh Laurie  in Roadkill, a major new political thriller created by David Hare.

Peter Laurence (Hugh Laurie) is a self-made, forceful and charismatic politician. Peter’s public and private life seems to be falling apart – or rather is being picked apart by his enemies.

As the personal revelations spiral, he is shamelessly untroubled by guilt or remorse, expertly walking a high wire between glory and catastrophe as he seeks to further his own agenda whilst others plot to bring him down. However events show just how hard it is, for both an individual and a country, to leave the past behind. With enemies so close to home, can Peter Laurence ever out-run his own secrets to win the ultimate prize?

Other cast includes Helen McCrory , Sidse Babett Knudsen, Saskia Reeves , Sarah Greene , Patricia Hodge , Ophelia Lovibond , Iain De Caestecker , Katie Leung , Olivia Vinall , Pippa Bennett-Warner , Shalom Brune-Franklin , Pip Torrens , Millie Brady and Danny Ashok .

Filming took place in London last year and further details will be confirmed in due course.
