The BBC have released a first trailer for upcoming Jimmy McGovern drama Common starring Nico Mirallegro.
The one-off drama centres around seventeen-year-old Johnjo O’Shea who gives his cousin Tony and some mates a last-minute lift in his brother Patrick’s car. They tell him they’re going for pizza, but Johnjo doesn’t know that they’re in fact going to ‘have a word’ with a local loudmouth who needs putting in his place.
As Johnjo waits in the car, one of their number, Kieran, takes offence with an innocent bystander Thomas – who is fatally stabbed.
The murder victim is the eldest child of Margaret and Tommy, who has become estranged from his family after a bitter divorce. Struggling to make ends meet on her own, Margaret is nevertheless determined to give Thomas the send-off he deserves.
Common airs at 9.00pm on Sunday 6th July on BBC ONE.
