Save Me Too

Every month, TMINE lets you know what TV the BFI will be presenting at the South Bank in London

It’s not as big as the programmes of even a few months ago, but the BFI still has an events programme for June. And here it is. I wonder if they’ll talk about Civvies?

Save Me Too – Lennie James in Conversation

19:00 BFI YouTube Channel

The BFI today announces a special digital in conversation event with Lennie James. The online event, which is part of the ongoing BFI at Home programme, presented in partnership with the Radio Times will feature Lennie James, the creator, writer and star of the universally acclaimed Save Me Too in conversation with BBC 6 Music film critic and broadcaster Rhianna Dhillon on Monday 22 June, 19:00 BST, via BFI YouTube.

The event, which coincides with the home entertainment release of Save Me Too, will look back at the success of the show, how Lennie is spending lockdown and his varied and esteemed career, including starring in television phenomena Line of Duty, The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead, as well as roles in blockbuster films including Snatch and Blade Runner 2049.

Save Me Too, which stars Suranne Jones, Stephen Graham and Jason Flemyng, has James delivering a powerhouse performance as Nelly, on a desperate search for his missing daughter Jody with potentially terrible consequences for him and those around him. All episodes of Save Me Too are available on Sky Atlantic on demand and NOW TV, and available on DVD from the 22 June.
