The British thriller series, Six Four is based on the novel Six Four written by Hideo Yokoyama. The show was composed by Luke Richards and directed by Ben A. Willaims. Produced by House Productions, it initially aired on 30th March 2023 on ITVX.
Starring Kevin McKidd, Vinette Robinson, Alex Ferns, and James Cosmo in the lead roles, the show tries to talk about issues such as kidnapping, family, love, betrayal, and corruption that rot the system from within. The scriptwriter of the show even summarized the series as a story about two people who must face their fears and address their pasts.
Along with that, the show also throws light on secrets and monsters that lurk in every family, destroying things until they are unrecognizable.
Kevin McKidd, famously known for his role in Grey’s Anatomy, mentioned during one of his interviews that he loved working in America. However, he still felt homesick for his home and his people back here.
Despite the love he received for his work in old shows, he was ecstatic to work on something made by people he knew and had previously worked with. Gratefully, his schedule matched with Six Four, and we got to see him in this amazing show!

When the case ends, though, who will have to pay the price?
