Kiefer Sutherland, Stephen Fry for Playhouse Presents

The two actors reunite for one-off drama Marked.

24: Live Another Day

After recently starring together on 24: Live Another Day, Kiefer Sutherland and Stephen Fry have reunited for new Playhouse Presents one-off drama Marked.

Playhouse Presents… Marked follows the story of James (Sutherland), a seemingly regular guy who has been ground down by the pressures of work, family, money and life. Drowning in debt, James hits crisis point and in his desperation agrees upon an unlikely opportunity to make some easy money.

His disgruntled neighbour (Kevin McNally) asks him to do a ‘hit’ on a man in return for a large amount of cash. Agreeing to his demands, James arrives at the man’s house and sets out to incapacitate his victim. But before he passes the point of no return, he discovers that things aren’t quite as they seem. Instead of the mark, he is confronted with the last person (Fry) he expects to see.

Marked is written and directed by Greg Ellis and was commissioned for Sky Arts by Cameron Roach, Head of Drama, Sky Entertainment.

“When Stephen and Kiefer agreed to do a Playhouse Presents…, it was like all my Christmas’ rolled into one,” adds Phil Edgar-Jones, director of Sky Arts. “Their enthusiasm to work together is evident and it echoes our own customers’ enthusiasm for amazing and inspiring drama. Sky is committed to working with the best, whether that is great actors, writers or directors, and giving them the freedom to create great work with gusto.”

Marked is due to air on Sky Arts HD in December.
