‘Cuffs’ is a fresh, authentic, contemporary eight-part cop show for BBC One. A visceral drama that takes the audience on an exhilarating ride through the challenges of frontline policing in the vibrant and alternative seaside city of Brighton. Adrenalised and propulsive, the show is packed full of dramatic incidents and colourful characters. Every episode sees our cops put their lives on the line to protect the public: from a booby-trapped cannabis farm in a suburban semi, to an elderly farmer’s wife with a shotgun – this is a job fraught with danger. But the high stakes are also matched with more absurd altercations such as a middle-class dog-napping and naturists fighting on the beach.
Season 01, Episode 01
On his first day working with Ryan, rookie cop Jake faces a challenging shift on the Brighton streets. But, being the boss’ son, Jake’s biggest challenge is earning the respect of his new colleagues.
