The Premise Of A Town Called Malice

The title of Jamie Donoughue’s A Town Called Malice is inspired by the hit song from the 1980s of the same name, sung by The Jam (Paul Weller and Bruce Foxton). Therefore, it is quite obvious that the series will be dominantly music-driven.

The narrative of the series revolves around the family of South London gangsters, the Lords. The series is mainly set in Costa del Sol. The Lord family misses their glorious days of committing crimes in the 1980s. Meanwhile, the youngest member of the family, Gene feels ignored and unappreciated by his family. This is because his family does not value his intellect and his killer instincts.

Gene and Cindy, who had just barely escaped a gangland shootout, fled to the Costa del Sol in Spain in an attempt to avoid getting caught by the cops. However, as they frantically managed to stay out of trouble, they soon found themselves caught up in the local underworld.

When the other members of the Lord family join them on the Costa del Sol and attempt to recover their glory as gang leaders of the underworld, things get even more complicated.
