Tv Drama Town Called Malice Key Art 2

Set amongst the beach clubs and palm trees of the Costa del Sol in the early 80s, A Town Called Malice follows the Lords, a crime family of petty thieves from South London, as they decamp from London to Spain to profit from an unexpected windfall – and to escape the attention of the police in a high-profile murder enquiry.

Release date

A Town Called Malice is released on Sky Max with NOW from Thursday, 16 March.


A Town Called Malice will have eight episodes.

Music plays a huge part in A Town Called Malice as the characters break into song and dance routines and every episode ends with a classic '80s music video.

Talking about the soundtrack, creator Nick Love said: "There’s nothing better to give you memories. Not everybody knows this place and not everybody went to this place and not everybody can relate to this place. But people can relate to the music.

"Part of it, obviously, is just me getting my rocks off by using the music that I love. But it is more than that. It’s really evocative for people. We’ve tried to do more than just turn it into a jukebox soundtrack."
