HBO mini-series to be set in Eighties Northern Ireland

Hollywood's next blockbuster television series is to be set in Eighties Northern Ireland.

The as-yet un-named multi-million-dollar epic, from Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes director Rupert Wyatt, will tell the story of an Army undercover agent infiltrating the Provisional IRA.

It is believed to have been inspired by the success of Troubles-based mini-series Harry's Game, which told a similar story and became a television phenomenon back in 1982.

English director Wyatt, whose re-imagining of The Planet Of The Apes story has become one of the year's highest grossing movies, is expected to start filming the new series early next year, with many scenes to be shot in Belfast and other parts of Northern Ireland.

It is being financed by Hollywood giants HBO and will be broadcast in the UK on satellite channel Sky Atlantic.
