First Teaser Trailer & Footage From 'The Smoke!'
(Click to enlarge)

It's here!: Well, at least a 30 second teaser and a few more excellent glimpses of it. ;) Sky Drama held a big press conference today to launch their upcoming slate, including The Smoke (Jamie was in attendance; you can get some highlights on our Twitter feed, though I'm sure we'll have more photos to post soon!) In conjunction, they released the very first teaser for the show... which you can watch RIGHT NOW!

Also, head over to Sky - or to their brand-new Tumblr page if Tumblr is your bag, and follow them! - and check out their extended show reel, which includes more clips from The Smoke as well as their other upcoming dramas. (Most of which, it must be said, look flipping outstanding. Speaking of Tumblr, DanRad and Jon Hamm in the same show is probably going to break it. Bwahaha.)

Sound off in the comments with your reaction to the first footage! I'm probably more excited about this than anything Jamie's done in a while; seriously, every one of my buttons just got pushed. I wish there was a little more of Jodie in the teasers, but overall I can't complain. (The "I know I'm an ugly bastard" line is endearing isn't it? Nice try, Bamberpants. ;) )

And oh heck, have some more screen captures behind the cut...

2014????? They're killing me!

That means the wait will be even longer for it here in the US.

Not necessarily... Netflix picked up The Fall and posted it nearly simultaneously with when it went out in the UK on BBC2. The U.S. may get lucky with this, as well. ;) Cross all those available appendages.

While I'm sure there is no deal in place to air it here yet, the fact that all of us outside the UK are able to view these trailers is a very good sign they are working to get their shows an international audience. I'm thinking Netflix or Hulu are good bets for the US and both air same day or very close to the UK airings. BBCA would likely be the best option for a traditional TV broadcast, but, what shows they do buy from the UK, seem to be from the BBC or ITV.

*nodnod* Hulu is a strong possibility, as they have already picked up some Sky 1 programming including Spy and Moone Boy; most of their UK imports are comedies, but not all. At least there's a precedent there!

It really does look like it'll be an interesting show. Thank you for keeping us all up to date.

Any time, doll. :) (BTW keep your eyes peeled over there 'cross the pond, still waiting on pics from the press conference today!)

I've already checked Rex but nothing doing yet. I'll keep an eye out. Meanwhile I've watched the trailer another half dozen times. Oh man, looks like they're putting him through the mill....

Me too! Love Ray Winstone. Every one of those shows looks fab. Even The Tunnel, which is a second remake of a show that was just remade (Broen / The Bridge), but the footage is great and hey, it's Fleur Delacoeur and Stannis Baratheon solving a murder together. SOLD. ;)

Jamie Bamber - as a fireman. Oh. My. That's like peanut butter and chocolate goodness.

I'm probably more excited about this than anything Jamie's done in a while; seriously, every one of my buttons just got pushed.

Holy, moly - yes.

Hope it's not too long of a wait for the US. I liked Law & Order UK, but this?! This is like Captain Apollo kind of anticipation. I haven't seen JB in anything that I've loved him in as much as that. Enjoyed yes, but BSG was an entirely different level. This looks like it could match it.:)

This I have to watch! Fireman and Angsty Jamie! Must be a great combo. <3

I can't believe it hasn't already been said, but...

Holy smoke!

Jamie meets his angsty match in Jodie Whittaker, and this teaser clip is outstanding--I can't wait! I subscribe to both Netflix and Hulu Plus, so surely between the streaming services and/or BBCA, this series will be available to American audiences sooner rather than later.

This series has the potential to be my favorite of anything that Jamie's done, including BSG (about which I was skeptical in the beginning), simply because the setting is more to my taste. And, for the first time, I'm totally on board with his romantic pairing (I loved Katee Sackoff as Starbuck, but the Lee/Kara relationship wasn't the focus of BSG, or even of Lee's life--and as much as I liked the idea of Matt/Alesha on LOUK, their appeal as a "couple" sprang mostly from one-sided lighthearted flirting).

On another note, I've not forgotten about the Hornblower interview, and I hope to post it within the next week or two. It is extremely long, which will be posted in several parts, but I think many here will enjoy reading a younger and less experienced Jamie talking about his first big break as it was being filmed.

I can't believe I forgot to reply to this; forgive me, I've been working a fairly rough schedule at my job! Basically just wanted to add no worries at all re: the Hornblower interview. It's very very kind of you to contribute, and we certainly know how real life can get in the way... whenever you are able to put it up is fine! ;)
