Riz Ahmed introduces ‘City of Tiny Lights’ TV spot

Meet Tommy Akhtar, a devoted son to an ailing father and a deadbeat private eye with a taste for cigarettes and bourbon.

When high-class prostitute Melody walks into Tommy’s office seeking his help, he’s drawn into a murder investigation and a dangerous criminal underworld where he will discover dark secrets from his own past.

Set in West London, and based on Patrick Neate’s novel of the same name, the film is a unique portrait of contemporary London as a teeming multicultural metropolis where nothing is as it seems.

Directed by Pete Travis (Vantage Point, Dredd), Riz Ahmed (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Night Of) stars as Tommy alongside Billie Piper’s (Penny Dreadful, Yerma) Shelley, his long-lost love.

The ensemble cast includes Cush Jumbo (Josephine and I, The Inbetweeners), James Floyd (My Brother The Devil, Everywhere and Nowhere) and Roshan Seth (Indian Summers, My Beautiful Laundrette).
